We are undertaking a complete restoration of this Hudson Hornet. As you can see from the photos, there are acres and acres of sheet metal on this historic machine. We started by removing the engine and all panels and doors. Then we sent it off to media blasting.
These cars pioneered the notion of uni-body construction. The front frame assembly could be moved, but the rear of the car was uni-body. That made for much lower center of gravity - leading to absolute domination of NASCAR at the time.
Metal repair is getting close to complete. We have begun to prime parts of the vehicle and replace panels. We will continue on additional metal repair, then move into paint, mechanical and interior.
