Sold for $57,200 at 2018 Worldwide Auctioneers : Hostetlers Hudson Auto Museum Auction.
The new 'Step Down' Hudson 'Monobilt' unitized frame/chassis was an early development of the 'unit body' concept. This combined the body and frame into a single, welded unit. In contrast to other American automobiles of the era, the rear chassis rails passed outside the rear wheels. This advanced setup, allowing for low ride height and low center of gravity, helped Hudson excel NASCAR competition. The 'Step Down' Hudsons were among the best-handling, and fastest vehicles of the era.

The Hornet was introduced in 1951 and came equipped with a 308 CID inline six-cylinder engine, the largest-displacement Hudson powerplant for 1951. With 145 horsepower on tap, it was also the most powerful 'six' on the market in America.

This particular example is a 1951 Hudson Hornet 6 Custom Convertible. It was customized into a parade car by a restoration shop in Oklahoma for movie work. In 1991, it was acquired by Eldon Hostetler at auction, where it was offered for sale on behalf of John Soneff of Denver, Colorado.

This car has unique deeply scooped doors, cut-down windshield, modified rear fenders, and a 'Continental' style spare-tire kit mounted at the rear. It has a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, a heater, pushbutton radio, and auxiliary gauges.
