The Restoration of My First Hudson Super Six

Well, it took me nearly a decade of working nights, weekends and holidays to complete a thorough or “ground-up” restoration of my Hudson.  First of all, I stripped it right down to the chassis, had this sandblasted and then painted it.

Then, in turn,  all the mechanical assemblies were renewed and assembled onto this chassis.

I had an engine re-conditioner do the major motor work for me.  But the rest, such as the gearbox, differential, brakes, and wheels,  I reconditioned myself, with the aid of a 1928 Hudson service manual  I’d managed to get since buying the car. 

Eventually I got it to the “rolling chassis” stage and then began repairing the body.  To do this I attended a part-time Polytechnic Vintage Car Panel-beating course for several more years, learning how panel-beat the old fashioned way, i.e. to weld, beat and file as I worked on panels from the Hudson.

Next, I taught myself how to spray-paint, sprayed the now good panels and assembled them back onto the chassis.  Then I wired up all the electrical parts. 

Finally the upholstery was done.  I had an upholsterer recover the more complex seats for me.  But I did all the other areas myself, such as the door panels, and hood lining  which were large and flat and relatively straightforward. 

The restoration of my first Hudson was complete!
