Twin H-Power: 1954 Hudson Hornet


The first generation Hudson Hornet featured a unique step-down (quasi unibody, where the floorpan was sunk down below the main frame rails) chassis that gave the car a low center of gravity that allowed it to dominate early stock car racing. A classic Hornet is well loved, particularly when equipped with the original Twin H-power carbureted inline-6 Find this 1954 Hudson Hornet here on eBay bidding for $18,100 with a few hours to go, located in Apopka, FL.


Today's Hornet is a coupe version covered in a two-tone red with black roof paint job that looks great if you ask this guy. The seller only takes a few photos of the car parked in a crowded shop which sorta makes me wish for a few pictures at a gas station.



Under the hood is an old school 308 cubic inch inline-6 that pushes out 170 horsepower when fed with the Twin H-Power dual carburetor setup, and probably more given the sellers description of "Randy's high performance additions."
