1952 Hudson Hornet


This Hudson Hornet, a circle track cast off, once ran the Nordic Speedway in Decorah, IA. The track is currently known as the Upper Iowa Speedway. The Hornet is for sale on ebay out of Glencoe, MN.

The Hudson has a 308 Flathead Six with the Twin-H Carter carbs, that allegedly runs, although nothing is hooked up to the motor. This Hudson 6 was originally rated at 145 horsepower, but with Hudson’s racing interest, they had the optional “Severe Usage” package. This was a factory-prepped and dealer-installed collection of thinly disguised high-performance options for the motor, which added another 85 HP.

When I last looked at the auction, the bid was at $1700.
