1955 Hudson Hornet  4 Door Sedan

The 1955 Hudson was the first new car built by the newly formed American Motors but was sold under the Hudson name.  The car received high acclaim for it's styling, handling, performance, braking, and for having the widest front seats in the industry!  The "egg crate" wide front grill was very popular at the time.

The pictures tell the tale on this car.  It is an original, un-restored car with the odometer showing 97K miles.  The miles have not been verified as actual.  The long lines of this great car are enhanced by the Continental Kit and the wide white-wall tires.  The car is powered by the factory available Packard-built 320 V8 and Packards Ultramatic automatic transmission.  The car runs and drives well.

The body is in original condition with some attention needed to the front floor pans.  The interior is also original.  The car could be driven and enjoyed as it is or is an ideal candidate for restoration as all parts are present.
