GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1950 Hudson Commodore 8 for purchase. Hudson's were made in Detroit until 1954, when they merged with Nash-Kelvinator to create American Motors (AMC). The Commodore was produced from 1941 to 1952 (sans war years). The Commodore was the largest and most luxurious Hudson model. The Commodore is also lauded for being a creative product of Betty Thatcher, the first female designer employed by a car manufacturer. In 1948, the Commodore was one of the first new design cars post-WWII. With an encircling frame, passengers lowered themselves to enter the vehicle. This design became known as a “step-down” separated itself from other contemporary cars. The surrounding frame also improved safety and performance, as Hudson dominated NASCAR from 1951-1954. Today, the rarity of finding a Hudson immediately turns heads with its bold sloping lines and over-abundant amount of chrome.
This ’50 Hudson Commodore 8 Sedan is a really good example restored and maintained to mostly stock specifications. It’s two-tone Red paint shows really well. The interior and headliner appear in excellent shape with the wood-trim showing really well helping the classic and unique look and feel for the high luxury of the time. This car is powered by the 254ci inline 8-cylinder engine paired with the 3-speed column shift manual transmission with overdrive. This car uses the 6-volt system with a new period correct wiring system. This is an impressive Commodore 8 which is a rarely found classic in such stock and excellent condition. It’s a great smooth drive that is also sure to turn heads and fun to show off! Please call or email for more details!
