Hudson Hornet 1952 - Update - Farland Classic Restoration

This Hudson Hornet is a sentimental nut-and-bolt restoration currently here in the shop.

This Hudson came to us from a longtime customer who has owned this vehicle since the mid sixties. Like many cars, overtime the Hornet wore out and needed some attention. This was when the owner decided it was time to get it back to original condition.

Here's the Hudson when we were initially pulling it apart. Those rear quarter panel skins had seen better days.

When we pulled the car apart we found a few different areas that needed attention. What better time to address those?

Some of these attention areas included the rear quarter panels and some minor rust repair on the underside of the vehicle.

We came up with a pretty good list of items, check out that list on the windshield!

One we had pulled the car apart, it had some time with our resident metal master. We worked to get quarter-panels repaired and get the metal smooth throughout the car.

From there the car went to Mikey, our Paint guru. He got that two-tone looking great.

Now we're working with interior and Keith has been given the task of refreshing the rear end. He's pulled out the rear axle and leaf springs. The drum brakes came apart for a cleaning, and soon enough the rear end will look as good as the rest of the car.

Trim is starting to go on, but there's some painting to be done.

  • Very nice πŸ‘πŸ» and in great condition for its age! Your climate must be way better than ours in England for keeping cars in shape! Either that or you look after them better!πŸ€”
