1948 Hudson Commodore – Show Quality

The Hudsons of the late 40’s were among the grandest of the American motor cars, on a par with the Cadillacs and Packards of the era, and this 6-passenger sedan likely transported a variety of the rich and famous people in its day.  This fully-restored Hudson Commodore is perfect enough to compete at the national level and would be a wonderful addition to any classic automobile collection

Great Car with Exquisite Finishes

This 1948 Hudson has been fully restored, including:

  • Beautiful garnet over crimson two-tone paint
  • All exterior chrome is excellent
  • Interior was completely reupholstered
  • Dash and window garnish mouldings fully restored
  • Straight six engine sits in a fully-detailed bay
  • Manual transmission with overdrive
  • Wide white wall tires and perfect wheel covers
  • Rear fender skirts
  • Extremely clean and solid undercarriage

Excellent from Top to Bottom

  • Paint and Body

The Commodore has a two-tone finish in garnet over crimson that is elegant in its subtleness and virtually flawless in its execution.

All of the external chrome looks as nice as it did back in 1948:perfect!

  • Interior

The interior was completely reupholstered and it looks like new, including the headliner. The quality and luxury of the car’s interior made it a worthy competitor of the Cadillacs and Packards.

New rugs were installed to match the rest of the interior.

Each of the door panels look as new.

The dash and the window garnish mouldings were restored and look as they did when the car was in the Hudson showroom in 1948.

  • Engine

The engine is the 261 cid straight six that purrs to life with the press of the starter button.  The detailed engine and its peripherals rest in a fully detailed engine bay that reflect the quality of what these cars looked like in the showroom.

  • Transmission

The car starts smoothly when the clutch is engaged and continues its smooth operation through the shifting of the gears.  This Commodore has overdrive as well.

  • Wheels and Tires

Wide whitewall tires and chrome hubcaps with the famous Hudson motif adorn all 4 wheels, with fender skirts to add to the swept-back elegance.

An Exceptional Opportunity 

There is one phrase that can best describe this 1948 Hudson: Classic Elegance! These are rare cars in any condition because of the limited number produced.  Finding one with this level of quality restoration is nearly impossible.  If you’ve always wanted a show-quality Hudson, this is the one to buy; and if you’ve never experienced the elegance of a Hudson Commodore first-hand, this is the one to see!
