1952 Hudson Hornet
Sold for $27,500 at 2013 Preserving the Automobile : An Auction at the Simeone Foundation.

Sold for $23,520 at 2020 RM Sothebys : The Elkhart Collection.
This Hudson Hornet four-door sedan features the company's dramatic 'step-down' design with its dropped floor pan that positions the passenger compartment inside the car's frame. When entering the car, the driver and passenger step down. This was an unusual layout for the time that would later be used by other automotive manufacturers.

Power is from a 308 cubic-inch L-head six-cylinder engine breathing through two downdraft carburetors and offering 160 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox with overdrive and a 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

The Hornet was a dominating force in the early 1950s with several checkered flag victories in NASCAR racing.

This car is finished in its classic original color scheme of white over black. The car has been repainted where appropriate with the original factory paint preserved wherever possible. Inside, the interior comfortably seats six. Front and rear bench seats are upholstered with original factory material, with the door-panel inserts finished in matching fabric. Color-coordinated carpets and headliner complete the compartment. The dashboard includes complete instrumentation as well as a factory-installed AM radio, heater, and tissue dispenser.

This sedan was originally sold in Bozeman, Montana. The odometer currently shows less than 58,000 miles.
