The Highway Earth Car Show brought out all kinds of fantastic vintage classics, and today we bring you two gorgeous Hudsons from that show.
The classic 1954 Hudson Hornet was known for dominating NASCAR in the early ’50s and, of course, gained a whole new level of fame from the Disney movie Cars.
This Hudson is the perfect kind of car for cruising around on the sunny Southern California days.
The brain child of Frank Spring, one of the designers for this 1955 Hudson Italia, this car is a melding of Italian and American automotive genius.
The body was built by Carrozzeria Touring in Italia on the Hudson Jet platform for the U.S. market.
The scoops above the headlights are functional and were meant to cool the front brakes, but really just forced air into the fender area.
The custom interior comes with a radio, a rare item in the early ’50s cars.
The trio of chrome tubes house the taillights for the car, a cool and functional feature of the design.
There is more to come from the Highway Earth Car Show, so stick around!
