  • Like so many other American automakers, the Hudson Motor Car Company returned to production in the wake of World War II with barely updated prewar models. Fortunately, however, this was to be only a brief stopgap, and Hudson caused a sensation when it unveiled an all-new lineup for 1948.

    Constructed using the marque’s “Monobilt” semi-unitized chassis system, these so-called “step-down” Hudsons featured low, sleek, almost custom-car styling; the design also afforded safety and handling advantages. In the guise of the Hornet, introduced in 1951, these revolutionary Hudsons would soon establish an enduring reputation for competition success—and as today’s luxury automakers know well, the qualities that lead to a credible performance car also tend to make for a well-engineered luxury vehicle.

    The magnificent 1949 Hudson Commodore 8 Convertible featured here is finished in gorgeous Jersey blue over a red leather interior and tan convertible top. This exquisite motorcar has recently been released from the famed rockhound collection and is now ready for its next caretaker. This virtual time capsule has a mere 19,622 actual miles and is arguably one of the lowest-mile and most original Commodore eight convertibles on the market today. I personally believe the investment potential of this highly desirable, extremely low mile and limited production Commodore 8 convertible will grow beyond your imagination. Offered to the investment-minded collector, investor, or enthusiast who desires to own one of the best!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
