1951 Hudson Hornet Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is excited to offer this sharp 1951 Hudson Hornet. If you have children and have ever seen the Cars movie then you will surly want to add this Hudson Hornet to your collection.

All Hornets from 1951 to 1953 were powered by Hudson's high-compression straight six H-145 engine. In 1954, power was increased to 170 HP from 140 HP. Starting in 1952 an optional twin-H or twin one-barrel Carburetor setup was available at an additional cost. An L head (flathead or side valve) design, at 308 cu inch (5.0L) it was the largest displacement six-cylinder engine in the world at that time. It had a two-barrel carburetor and produced 145 HP at 3800 RPM and 275 LB of torque. The engine was capable of far more power in the hands of precision tuners, including Marshall Teague, who claimed he could get 112 miles per hour from an AAA or Nascar certified stock Hornet, as well as Hudson engineers who developed severe usage options (thinly disguised racing parts) The combination of the Hudson engine and overall road-ability of the dirt and the very few paved tracks of the 1950s. The newly introduced Twin H-power was available in November 1951 as a dealer installed option at the cost of $85.60. An electric clock was standard. The total production of the Hornet in 1951 was only 43,656 units.

This 6-cylinder automatic Hornet is numbers matching and original to the car but has been rebuilt about 150 miles ago. This is a sharp driver quality car that has a unique brownstone color with matching cloth interior. Options on this car include; Am radio, Hub caps, Seat belts, wide white walls and raised white letters.
