1942 Hudson Super Six
Sold for $231,000 at 2007 Gooding & Company.
With only a few wood-bodied station wagons created that bear the Hudson nameplate, this example been well shown by its former owner, Jim Fritts. In the early 1990s, it was treated to a restoration which still shows well in modern times. It is one of only four known surviving 1942 Hudson Woodies, and this example is the most accurate and true to its original form.

This wagon features new mahogany body panels and the original ash framing. It has the optional electric overdrive, AM radio and turn signals. Under the bonnet is a 212 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine rated at 102 horsepower, which is the larger of the two six-cylinder engines offered by Hudson in 1942. Though this wagon weighed a staggering 3,315 pounds, it was still lighter than its competition. The six-cylinder engine and overdrive transmission were more than capable of carrying the load.

There are Triple-Safe brakes, which activate the mechanical emergency brake should the hydraulics fail. There is also a smooth-engaging oil-filled cork clutch. On the tailgate and above the split rear bumper is a spare tire.

After the cars restoration, this vehicle has earned nearly 20 awards, including Antique Automobile Club of America National Junior, senior and Preservation Awards. It was Best of Show and People's Choice at the 1993 Wave Crest meet in Encinitas, California. In 2003 it was shown at the Amelia Island Concours and attended the Campbell Body Reunion in Waterloo, New York.

In 2007 this vehicle was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held at Pebble Beach, California. Auction estimates assume it would fetch between $250,000 - $300,000. It is a very rare Hudson Wood Bodied Wagon that has had only four owners since new. The estimates were proven nearly accurate, as the lot was sold for $231,000 including buyer's premium.
