The Hudson Commodore was introduced in 1941 to moderate success. Following the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the United States entered World War II and production stopped in the Hudson plants to assist in war production. Following the end of the war, Hudson resumed production of Commodores like this in 1946. However, this Hudson Commodore sits today a lot different than when it left the factory in 46. The beneficiary of a complete 8-year resto-mod restoration, today its a very capable cruiser thanks to a legendary Chevy power plant and a ton of upgrades. Sure this 46 had a grand beginning, however at some point someone parked it in the Mississippi swamp and left it to rot, thankfully the previous owners saw the potential of this Commodore and started an 8 year restoration to its current condition. Tilt the hood forward on this 46 Hudson and youll see that gone is the original six cylinder, and in its place is the near bulletproof 350 cubic inch Chevy V8. The engine has a vintage look thanks to an Offenhauser intake manifold and Hudson stamped valve covers. At the top of the engine, a small air filter rests on an Edelbrock 4-barrell carburetor that shoves the air fuel mixture into the aforementioned Offenhauser intake. Spark arrives in the cylinder being delivered on Accell super stock spiral core wires that are fed by an Accel HEI supercoil distributor. The amazing Commodore carries two batteries so you can show off all the amazing features at a local car show without having to worry about whether or not it will crank after the show. The dual-battery setup is controlled by a panel on the passenger side of the engine bay. In front of the engine is a BeCool radiator that ensures this Hudson can take on any long trip without having to worry about overheating. Up to this point the results of the extensive restoration have been pretty incredible, but the interior might be the real winner of this build. Open the doors to this Commodore and youll find a blend of modern convenience with styling of yester-year. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
