Now sold to David in Martha’s Vineyard!!! Congratulations!
This is a great car with really nice panel gaps and a very handsome color scheme. I happen to love the red on red color scheme, it’s completely correct and appropriate for the era! You just don’t see this kind of color grouping anymore, and it’s part of the fun! If it were my car, I would add a red top too to match! (and a white top would also look great, although there is nothing wrong with the current black top…)
This is “Hudson,” (AN5L 38415) a very strong Bugeye in original cherry red, first titled as a 1961 but built in 1960. The car underwent an impressive ground-up restoration in 2004 and it still looks better than new. Mileage showing is 67,427. Could be original mileage? Always hard to tell but the records might verify that the odometer never turned over.
I like the incredibly detailed records that come with this car. The fellow who commissioned the restoration traced ownership right back to the very first owner. You can see this document in the photo gallery. In fact, the car comes with an impressive notebook with dozens of receipts, including a build sheet for the engine work, also done before 2010 with only about 3000 miles driven since.
The interior is excellent, and the car is great to drive. Engine bay is quite clean too, with the original 948 power plant and four speed transmission.
Top and windows are good, (see photos below) tires are striking period white wall bias-plys. Red with red seats is the factory correct color scheme. This is a great car for anyone who wants a show-ready car and to have a great time driving to events in style!
