We’ve featured one of these Hudson pickup trucks before, the grey one. We shot it in the parking lot of the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum which owns it. It was also grey then, though it was primer grey. Since then it’s been given a top coat and it was on display with other Hudson pickups at the Orphan Car Show, which the Museum helps sponsor. Next to late ’40s early ’50s Dodge panel trucks with their old-school center hinged hoods mixed with postwar style, the Hudson pickups are my favorite trucks from the period following WWII. I’m not fond of the fog lights in the inset part of the grille on the purple one, but in general I like the style of these trucks, even the prewar style oval back window.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
