Published in

1954 Hudson Hornet convertible with 7X engine for sale. From the seller’s description:

This car has the 7X Motor, it has special internals, bolts, head and cam as per engine specs. It is the 210BPH motor and is original to this car. It was rebuilt in the 90’s along with the restoration of the vehicle. The car has exactly 4,306 miles since its’ rebuild. This is an old vehicle and as such does leak a little fluid when it is not utilized. The engine has been recently tuned (both carbs and linkages adjusted, plugs, oils etc). The transmission is a Hydro-matic 3 speed with the 4th overdrive, it shifts well and does require tuning from time it time, it drives like a semi-automatic should. The rear end and drive train are in excellent shape, the car runs very well its smooth and cruises on the highway with no difficulty. There are no strange noises that I am aware of, it is old technology and a convertible so its not as quiet as todays Mercedes convertible cars are.
This Hudson has power windows, power convertible top, power steering and power brakes (all work well). The brakes have been converted to DISC brakes mainly for safety, and an air conditioning unit has been installed. The radio is original and has also been adapted to work with FM. The stereo system of the car has been upgraded and there are speakers under the seats and hidden in the rear on the car to maintain originality. The interior is in BEAUTIFUL condition, all of the seats and panels are excellent, the dashboard is as it should be, and all of the gauges work! The speedometer works well, the only gauge that isn’t working is the temperature gauge so an aftermarket gauge displays temperature (see picture) Gas gauges, speed gauges, and other gauges all work well. Blower motor and temperature functions all work well. All of the rubber seals and weather stripping are excellent.
The body of this car is one EXCELLENT shape. there are only 3 total scratches on this car. There is one on the passenger door (see picture) and one on the bottom of the drivers’ door along with the rocker panel (under drivers’ door). the chrome is in perfect condition with no damage anywhere. Everything was re-chromed and its all in 100% condition. I have taken pictures of any damage (if any) anywhere on the vehicle. All of the electronics and lights work well, there are no issues with paint or any body issues, this car is 100% metal and was professionally frame off restored and painted in the 90’s. The color is now NAVY BLUE the interior color is original. The original color of this car is a light blue color (almost teal) and the top was lighter as well. This top has glass and is in perfect condition with no damage tears or wear at any place. The cars undercarriage is in perfect shape, there is no rust or issues anywhere, the panels, the floors, the frame or any place underneath. The tires are in new condition (white wall) the inner trunk floors and panels are solid, no rust anywhere.
The engine is healthy and runs excellent, it starts almost immediately, it has been tuned (twin carbs twin H motor). All of the fluids have been replaced and the car has been inspected for the sale. The engine has been verified and the transmission inspected. The brakes have all been adjusted and the cars condition assessed. This is a very rare car and even more so in this condition and with these options.
