Over on our Facebook Fan Page, David Leeman commented on how few Hudsons he sees photos of from car shows and auctions. It just so happened that there was a stunning example of a Hudson at the Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale auction I attended last weekend, so I promised to show it off.

This stunning creamy convertible is a 1951 Hudson Commodore 8 Convertible Brougham. The burgundy interior is beyond beautiful. The art deco trim touches around the car are super cool. I was amazed to see power windows on a car of this age.

While not a Hudson Hornet like Doc Hudson in the movie Cars, the bodies are unmistakably related. It is a shame the brand did not survive past 1957, as the brand identity from a design standpoint was incredibly strong. To this day, other manufacturers struggle to design this much continuity and identity into their cars.
