Vehicle Notes
1942 Hudson Bigboy Cab Pickup, Finished in Strawberry Red with Tan Leather interior. This very rare truck underwent a comprehensive ground up, body off chassis, nut and bolt rotisserie restoration.
This incredible Hudson Cab Pickup has been restored to a show quality and tastefully sports the appropriate look of its period. It displays outstanding panel fit, superior paintwork, bright work and an interior trim finish second to none. It sits with a graceful slight nose low stance. With its intricate grille, a pair of period correct amber fog light, running lights on the fenders, Hudson triangle motif accent lights on the hood, steel wheels, dog-dish hubcaps, beauty rings, wide-whitewall tires and the rear bed trunk mounted to the high gloss oak bed floor makes a visual statement of gentlemanly sophistication and grace. When you look into the Art-Deco interior, it remains original and intact down to the fabulous steering wheel, transmission gear selector, center dash Zenith 6tube radio, original clock in the glove box, Weather Master heater, push button start & lights and original restored gauges, all in prefect working order.
Under the hood you will find it has been upgraded to 12V electrics. Refitted with a 1954 Hudson Twin H-Power engine of NASCAR fame: a straight six, L Head, 308 cubic inch, 170 horsepower, 260 ft-lbs of torque, a factory dual carburetor setup that utilizes dual Carter WA1-barrel carburetors, with and Hudson-Gm HydraMatic 3-speed automatic transmission and dual exhaust.
In 1942 only 47 of these 128 inch wheelbase Bigboy Cab Pickups were made before the Hudson factory in Detroit was converted to aircraft fuselage and weapons manufacture on February 5, 1942.
The name "Hudson" came from Joseph L. Hudson, a Detroit department store entrepreneur and founder of Hudson's department store (now Macy's), who provided the necessary capital and gave permission for the company to be named after him. A total of eight Detroit businessmen formed the company on February 20, 1909, to produce an automobile which would sell for less than $1,000. The company quickly started production, with the first car driven out of a small factory in Detroit on July 3, 1909. The new Hudson "Twenty" was one of the first low-priced cars on the American market and very successful with more than 4,000 sold the first year.
As the role of women increased in car-purchase decisions, automakers began to hire female designers. Hudson, wanting a female perspective on automotive design, hired Elizabeth Ann Thatcher, in 1939. A graduate of the Cleveland School of Arts with a major in Industrial Design, she became one of America's first female automotive designers. Her contributions to the 1941 Hudson included exterior trim with side lighting, interior instrument panel, interiors and interior trim fabrics. She designed for Hudson from 1939 into 1941, as a result Hudson's 1942 vehicles were a bit flashier, with new front and rear fenders and trim that suggested a full-width grille. The lower body flared out to conceal the running boards producing a design statement that is low, long, dripping with chrome and a highly detailed bed design.
