Extraordinary 1949 Black Hudson Commodore 8. Under the hood rests the Hudson Power Dome in-line 8 cylinder engine that runs smoothly, has been detailed to show quality standards and is backed by a 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive. Award winning, very original, survivor car. This is probably one of the best kept Hudsons on the planet. Very nice black paint and gorgeous, mostly original, sparkling chrome all the way around. The doors, hood and trunk lid all open and shut like the day it was new. The tan pin striped interior and dash are impeccable, extremely well maintained and have stood the test of time. The interior is also equipped with adjustable roof mounted antenna, front and rear courtesy lighting, wood grain treatment on the dash and garnish moldings, Hudson tissue dispenser, beautiful chrome trim and bezels, clear instrumentation, spotlight and the one of a kind, original Hudson steering wheel. Rolling on correct steel wheels and Hudson hubcaps and a newer set of wide white radial tires.

"The Hudson Commodore is an automobile which was produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan between 1941 and 1952. During its time in production, the Commodore was the largest and most luxurious Hudson model."
"Commodore series was Hudson's largest model range in its debut year, consisting of sedans, coupes and convertibles. Hudson used a forward hinged hood that opened from the rear by the windshield with the front end of the hood sliding downward over the grille. Elements of the interior and exterior were styled by Betty Thatcher, 'the first woman designer to be employed by a car manufacturer'."
"For 1949, the Commodore line was enlarged to include more luxurious Custom models. As a marketing promotion, Hudson had plastic specialists use scaled-down blueprints to develop transparent models of the Commodore Eight sedan to demonstrate and promote the design and construction of the cars."American Dream Machines
