Sold for $44,000 at 2018 Worldwide Auctioneers : Hostetlers Hudson Auto Museum Auction.
This vehicle is a 1953 Hudson Wasp Super 6 Hollywood Hardtop finished in glossy red with a contrasting white hardtop roof. It was built during February of 1953 and is equipped with the 262 CID L-head six-cylinder engine fitted with Twin H-Power intake system with two Carter one-barrel carburetors. There is a Hydra-Matic Drive automatic transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

This car was purchased by Eldon Hostetler after his 1953 Hudson Wasp Sedan was totaled in a collision on June 10th of 1997. Mr. Hostetler found this car in Littleton, Colorado. At the time, it was missing its engine and right-front fender. A low-mileage engine and drivetrain were found and swapped to this Hollywood Hardtop. The missing fender was replaced, and a 'Twin H-Power' intake system was purchased at the AACA Hershey meet and installed.

This car has a steel sun visor, clock, heater, radio, and 'Startix' ignition.

This Holly Hardtop is one of just 590 produced in 1953.
