This 1947 Hudson Big Boy is one of2,917 Super Six Pickup trucks produced by Hudson in 1947, is magazine featuredand was the 2019 Grand National Custom Roadster Show Pickup Winner. This is abeautiful build all around. Ford 300 CI inline-6 engine backed by a Ford4-speed manual transmission with Offenhauser intake manifold, 4-barrel Holleycarburetor, aluminum radiator, split dual exhaust, and fuel intake relocated totruck bed. Filled seams on fenders and cab, oak runners on running boards, newoak bed, and new rubber and glass. Custom classic interior features stockZenith tube radio, and Commodore steering wheel. All this sits on steelies withbaby moons on white wall Coker tires that finish off the look just right.

Fordand GM pickups of the time were visually utilitarian but by contrast, Hudson'scab pickup looked decidedly custom with flowing front fenders with chrome trimand a well-appointed cabin with automobile-style comfort and refinement,complete with Hudson's feature 30-hour clock. However, it was also a toughworkhorse with heavy-duty suspension and a superstructure supported by theover-engineered frame rails and cross members that underpinned its automobiles.But the Hudson cost more than its utilitarian rivals, and 1947 broughtproduction to an end.      The ownerspent years tracking down this final-year Super Six and a comprehensiverestoration began with the goal being to preserve the original essence enhancedby sensitive customization.  As you cansee, he achieved his goal with eye catching 2-inch lowering, filled seams, oakbed and trim, new shoes, and just enough metal flake in the Firethorn Red Pearlpaint to accentuate the curves. That this Hudson needed less in the way ofadornment and mods to be a recent custom show winner only emphasizes how muchmore you got in 1947 with a pickup that was already a road-ready "factorycustom" the day it rolled off the Detroit production line. With trucksselling like hot cakes for all the money at the auctions, now it’s your turn toget this steel of a deal on a refined and polished piece of automotivehistory.   Offered at $85,000 OBO.
