For the 1928 model year Hudson featured several handsome body styles designed and built by the famous Murphy Body Company of Pasadena, California, known for its custom bodies on luxury makes such as Duesenberg and Lincoln. In addition to its custom bodies, Murphy also designed two production Hudson bodies, the landau sedan and the victoria. Six Custom body styles were built for Hudson by Biddle and Smart in Amesbury, Massachusetts.

The Hudson redesign for 1928 featured a high, more slender radiator, larger headlights and vertical radiator louvers, all providing the car with a more elegant appearance.

A 92 horsepower, 'Super Six' six-cylinder motor was mounted on the 127 wheelbase chassis. An industry first was Hudson's use of a steering wheel using hard rubber on a steel core. Its color (black) matched the car's instrument panel.

This Murphy bodied Hudson has many parts that went on Duesenbergs (interior door handles, window cranks, windshield wipers, and the dash has a special finish). All metal around the windows and other metal trim are nickel-plated, which is quite elegant. The colors used add to the Hudson's appearance. The running boards are of unusual design made of varnished wood and have nickel drop-through grooves at the front and back doors so dirt and snow can drop out along with nick-plated metal strips. The Convertible Sedan bodywork is built in lightweight aluminum.

The exact number of Murphy Convertible Sedan Model O produced is not known. It is believed that less than five remain today and each of them have unique traits not seen in the other surviving examples. This example, for instance, is the only one known to have a three-piece hood with completely removable side panels and a fixed top. Most Model O hood are four-piece units with a hinged top with attached and hinged side panels. Another unique feature found on this vehicle include the individual polished stainless-steel strips attached to the body panels, which traverse the length of the hood, body, and cowl.

This Model O has the Murphy trademark 'Clear Vision' narrow windshield and window pillars.

This Hudson was acquired by the Hostetlers sight unseen via Pete Booz and Richard Griffith from a California auto auction in 2002. It was believed that the car had been stored for the previous five decades. At the time of purchase, it was solid, complete, and well-preserved, but in need of a total restoration. After being stored for several more years, in 2008 it was sent to LaVine Restorations of Nappanee, Indiana, where it received a complete, body-off-frame restoration. The work took 15 months and was completed in 2009. In the back is a rear luggage trunk, which was also restored and covered with new material, and finished with 200 round, nickel-plated heads.

Upon completion, the car was taken on the Pebble Beach Tour and competed in the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, earning Best of Class. It has been awarded Full Classic recognition from the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA), with approval granted June 7, 2010. It earned National First Prize honors at the October 2010 Hershey Fall Meet under judging by the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA). It has also been shown at the Concours d'Elegance of America and Glenmoor Gathering. Most recently, the vehicle has been on long-term display at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan.
