Classic Car Overview

Classic Car Marketing, Inc. Southern California’s premier marketing company is pleased to introduce this new listing offered for sale by one of our clients.

This 1947 Hudson Big Boy is one of 2,917 Super Six Pickup trucks produced by Hudson in 1947, is magazine featured and was the 2019 Grand National Custom Roadster Show Pickup Winner. This is a beautiful build all around. Ford 300 CI inline-6 engine backed by a Ford 4-speed manual transmission with Offenhauser intake manifold, 4-barrel Holley carburetor, aluminum radiator, split dual exhaust, and fuel intake relocated to truck bed. Filled seams on fenders and cab, oak runners on running boards, new oak bed, and new rubber and glass. Custom classic interior features stock Zenith tube radio, and Commodore steering wheel. All this sits on steelies with baby moons on white wall Coker tires that finish off the look just right.

Ford and GM pickups of the time were visually utilitarian but by contrast, Hudson's cab pickup looked decidedly custom with flowing front fenders with chrome trim and a well-appointed cabin with automobile-style comfort and refinement, complete with Hudson's feature 30-hour clock. However, it was also a tough workhorse with heavy-duty suspension and a superstructure supported by the over-engineered frame rails and cross members that underpinned its automobiles. But the Hudson cost more than its utilitarian rivals, and 1947 brought production to an end.      The owner spent years tracking down this final-year Super Six and a comprehensive restoration began with the goal being to preserve the original essence enhanced by sensitive customization.  As you can see, he achieved his goal with eye catching 2-inch lowering, filled seams, oak bed and trim, new shoes, and just enough metal flake in the Firethorn Red Pearl paint to accentuate the curves. That this Hudson needed less in the way of adornment and mods to be a recent custom show winner only emphasizes how much more you got in 1947 with a pickup that was already a road-ready "factory custom" the day it rolled off the Detroit production line. With trucks selling like hot cakes for all the money at the auctions, now it’s your turn to get this steel of a deal on a refined and polished piece of automotive history.   Offered at $85,000 OBO.
