Looks like Wayne’s: ’52 Hudson Hornet
The most recent episode of Wayne Carini’s Chasing Classic Cars features Wayne as the caretaker for a collection of fabulous Hudsons. The featured car of the episode is a ’53 Hudson Hornet very much the car we found today. The owner of the car agreed to sell the car to Wayne and it is now in his personal collection. Today’s Hornet is in comparable condition to Wayne’s and with fewer miles. This one has a silver roof over Emerald Green and it looks great. Hornets are important because they really led the way in aerodynamic styling. The body was set low in the chassis instead of on top like other cars of the period. This allowed that low, slippery silhouette. Hornets were very popular on the race track too. The seller states there are few flaws on this 35,000 original mile, 2-owner car – some chrome pitting and a cracked driver’s window. Other than that it is a runner. As nice as these cars are they do not bring huge money. A solid #1 car should sell for under $30,000.
