This exquisite 1919 Hudson Super Six Boattail Speedster is a smart little runabout that is loaded with magnificent details and outstanding performance. Starting with the main body, the cream-colored paintwork is accented with chocolate brown detailing on the frame and radiator grille.
The colors are tied together with well-judged gold and brown coach stripes on the fenders and main body. The paint quality is excellent and the body condition and fit are above average for a car of this period. Detailing is simply marvelous, with the famous Hudson triangle logo theme recurring all over the car. Cycle fenders give a distinctly sporting look, and the fronts are finished off with leather mud flaps, embossed with the Hudson logo.
The front end is dominated by large brass headlamps, a brass Moto-Meter, and a massive brass searchlight, all polished to a mirror finish. In fact, beautifully polished brass is found just about everywhere you look; from the door hinges to the cockpit surround, hood catches and even on the suspension and tire valve stems. The windscreen frame is gorgeous – delicate and racy looking with two brass A-pillars and a frameless top. There is even a trunk built in to the rear bodywork for an added dose of practicality in an otherwise very sporty machine.
The cozy cockpit is accessed through a single right hand door, thanks to the left-side-mounted spare wheel. There’s just enough room for driver and a willing passenger on the brown leather seat. Upholstery is in excellent condition, showing only the slightest hint of use on the seat cushion. Door panels are trimmed in chocolate leather to match the seat and capped with wood accents. The dash is simple and functional, painted in the same chocolate brown as the exterior, with nickel-plated gauge bezels and switchgear. A full folding top is fitted, trimmed in white and finished with a delightful Hudson Triangle rear window and plenty of brass hardware. A large wood header rail fits snugly along the top of the windscreen, giving the car a more formal and finished look when the top is up.
