Glad I live nowhere near them. I sure don.t need to be tempted with another old car. Two Ts is plenty. The Hudson was a very good car in its day I've been told. The Chryslers were fine autos. Glad I don't live in Iowa.

I always liked Hudson, and have heard they were a good car too. The price seems good for an HCCA qualifying strong car. Especially if it's as straight as it looks in the photo.....

I think the Hudson is a 1916 model, and therefore may or may not qualify for HCCA. They like a lot of cars ran a bit off calendar at that time and brought the '16 model out early. I know of several people using '16 Hudsons as their primary tour car. They are great cars by the way, and that one looks cheap at the price. All three cars look like really good deals for what they are.

Looks like an estate sale judging by the descriptions: "ran when parked years ago."
Can't say I like the '25 Chrysler's interior, it just doesn't look right. The Hudson though, 7 passenger touring, you can take a whole party places with all that seating!

Well my dad and I bought the Hudson. We have known about these cars for a long time and didn't want it to slip away. If anyone knows anything about these cars or knows of part stashes please let me know.

Neat Hudson, Ned. What horsepower is it?

A friend of mine has a '29 Desoto Model K 4 door sedan. Has a straight six. I think he said Desoto became Chrysler... That car sure looks very similar to his.

I passed a Hudson yesterday and had no idea what it was - didn't recognize the radiator emblem. Now I do. Thanks for posting.

Ned: Glad to hear you bought the Hudson. I have a 36 Hudson coupe, suicide doors, with a rumble seat. Nice cars. Congratulations. Now someone needs to buy the Chrysler coupe - looks good.

I believe it is 54 horse. (The big one).

I will have to race Rob and Tim on the pretours for New London to New Breighton to see how it compares with the K's.

Ned, congrats.....

Many years ago I was in Lincoln NE when the Great Race participants made their evening stop. At the time I had one old car, and was just getting into the hobby. There were several Hudsons and Essex on the tour, and I asked one of the participants why? He said they had really strong engines including strong bottom ends (crankshafts and mains).

I also met a fellow driving a Model T. His name was Ralph.....



Rest in peace, old friend.

Oh man, his passing has left a big hole in the T Continuum. What a guy!
