Sport Phaeton
Coachwork: Biddle and Smart
Chassis #: 44383 - Possibly
Sold for $148,500 at 2018 Worldwide Auctioneers : Hostetlers Hudson Auto Museum Auction.
The 1929 Hudson Series L rested on a 139 inch wheelbase while the company's other model, the Series R, had a 122.5 inch platform. Both came equipped by Hudson's inline six, a 288.5 cubic-inch F-head unit with overhead intake valves developing 92 rated brake horsepower at 3,200 engine revolutions. The engine's crankshaft was carefully balanced by a patented series of precision-engineered counterweights, offering smooth power delivery. With the addition of lightweight bodywork, they were among the fastest cars available at the time.

This particular example is a Hudson Series L Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton which had a base price of $2,200. Its 'semi-custom' coachwork was crafted by Biddle and Smart with a design influenced by Hudson's collaboration with the Murphy coachbuilding company of Pasadena, California.

It is believed that this is one of as few as 17 examples produced and just seven remaining today with this body style. It was acquired by the Hostetler collection in late-October 1992 via Jack Miller, the last active Hudson dealer. It remained in the collection for several years before Pat and Jan Appenzeller of Milford, Indiana were commissioned to give it a restoration. The work was completed in 2002.

This car is finished in yellow and orange paintwork. Period accessories include Pilot-Ray pivoting driving lights, a grille stone guard, a stanchion-mounted spotlight affixed to the driver's side, dual side-mounted spares with canvas covers and side view mirrors, cowl lamps, a tan canvas folding top and side curtains and, of course, dual folding windscreens and flip-up rear cowl. Additional extras include twin folding tray tables in the rear passenger compartment and a jeweler's quality instrument panel.
