GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1951 Hudson Commodore Coupe for your consideration. It's powered by a 262ci 6-cylinder motor that is paired with a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The drivetrain in this Hudson is extremely solid and smooth. The Hudson 6 was the higher end car in 1951. The car was sold new in the dry climate of Goodwin, Kansas and spent many years there. The underside appears to be rock solid and the floors have zero patches. These cars are prone to rust and rot, however this one is very solid and clean. The car was built in February of 1951. There were 16,979 Commodores built in 1951. In 1951 there were 131, 915 Hudsons built. Only 723 are HET registered, 103 are Commodore 6's and of that only 14 are coupes. The car features original seat covers, door panels, carpet and headliner. The gauges and lights are in working order. The car rides on four new American Classic radial tires which look like the original bias ply tires. The Following upgrades have been done : new front shocks, front coils, brass oil pump gear, complete tune up(coil, condenser, points, cap, plugs and wires) new electrical fuel pump, headlight crossover wires to headlights, valve job was done at 78,000 miles to the original engine.
