This beautiful and rare 1955 Hudson Hornet is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. In its final two years of production, the Hornet became a product of the newly formed American Motors Corporation (AMC). The Detroit plant was closed and Hudson Models were shifted to the Nash’s Kenosha Wisconsin facility. The Hudson’s would be based on the senior Nash models but would have exclusive Hudson Styling. The first-generation Hudson Hornets featured a functional "step-down" design with dropped floorpan and a chassis with a lower center of gravity than contemporary vehicles that helped the car handle well – a bonus for racing. Hudson was the first automobile manufacturer to get involved in stock car racing. The Hornet dominated stock car racing in the early-1950s, when stock car racers actually raced stock cars. Overall, Hudson won 27 of the 34 NASCAR Grand National races in 1952, followed by 22 wins of 37 in 1953, and capturing 17 of the 37 races in 1954 — "an incredible accomplishment, especially from a car that had some legitimate luxury credentials." By the owner’s own account this Hornet is one of the nicer one still being driven. Under the hood is the original 308 CID Inline 6 cylinder engine. The engine has a set of dual carburetors with air cleaners giving it a nice sporty look. The engine has been treated to a new water pump, fuel pump, rebuilt carburetors and the fuel tank has been reconditioned and sealed. This Hornet has even been tuned up and is ready for the road! The exterior is the original color scheme, but has had one repaint. The interior is plush and looks to be all original. This Hornet has been pampered and has less than 48000 original miles! If you have been looking for a clean classic that you can take to car shows or drive on a daily basis but don’t want to bust the bank this Hornet is an excellent choice. Options on this 1955 Hudson Hornet include AM Radio, Vinyl Interior with Cloth Inserts, Hub Caps with Steel Wheels wrapped in Wide White Wall Radial Tires. This one of a kind 1955 Hudson Hornet can be seen, including an HD video, at www.gatewayclassiccars.com.
