Classic Car- 1951 Hudson Hornet

YouTube

Do you remember the The Hudson Hornet?  It was produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan between 1951 and 1954. It was one of the best racing cars of the 1950’s.

The first-generation Hudson Hornets featured a functional “step-down” design with dropped floorpan and a chassis with a lower center of gravity than contemporary vehicles that helped the car handle well – a bonus for racing. The Hornet’s lower and sleeker look was accented by streamlined styling. The car’s “unique, low slung appearance and silky handling earned Hudson an image that – for many buyers – eclipsed luxury marques like Cadillac’s.”

The Hornet dominated stock car racing in the early-1950s, when stock car racers actually raced stock cars.

During 1952, Marshall Teague finished the 1952 AAA season with a 1000-point lead over his closest rival, winning 12 of the 13 scheduled events. Hornets driven by NASCAR aces Herb Thomas, Dick Rathmann, Al Keller, Frank Mundyand, and Tim Flock won 27 NASCAR races driving for the Hudson team.”
