This 1949 Hudson Super Six runs but the ‘surface needs work; according to the seller, and it is a one-owner, museum-owned vehicle, and it has undergone a few pretty cool modifications.

Let’s visit the interior first since that’s a comfort detail for whoever buys this beauty – the interior has been reupholstered, and from what is visible in the photos, it looks pretty nice.

Why this 1949 Hudson Is a Lead Sled

(I do realize most everyone reading here already knows the terminology, but I don’t want to assume that – so I like to put a few words of definition on terms related to some of articles about these customized vehicles.)

The chrome has been shaved off the doors and leaded in. (I’m ashamed to say I didn’t notice the absence of handles at first glance.)

One last feature I would like to point out on this Hudson Super Six is on the front end – recessed, Frenched headlights that add to smooth, clean lines of this amazing 1949 custom car.
