Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present the story of the Holy Grail Hudson. This 1947 Hudson Super 8 was found in a south Florida garage stored since the 1990s. With a mere 24,820 miles (currently 25,587, 767 mi since rebuild), the Holy Grail Hudson exhibited the least amount of wear, tear, and deterioration of any antique car we have ever seen. The Hudson Super 8 had absolutely no rust, not even one pin hole. The original cover on the tailpipe was intact; the brake drums were uncut with mirror finish. The Super 8 was adorned with the original 1947 window stickers as well as the original dealer installed Do it in a Hudson bumper sticker. Hudson Motors produced only 5076 - 1947 Hudson Super 8's, with very few remaining on the road today. The Hudson is a number 1 condition car, and may be the number one condition among all Hudson cars in existence today. This 1947 Hudson Super 8 is truly a piece of fine art that captures the essence of the art deco era. The colors are simply wonderful and were carefully matched with era correct tones and hues. The bronze colored glass compliments the beautiful two-tone colors and gorgeous wood grain dash. The highly detailed art deco style visor was hand fabricated in metal with hidden brackets. The undercarriage is as nice as the exterior. This rust free 70 year-old 1947 Hudson Super 8 is of the highest condition and quality of restored cars of the era.
