1953 Hudson Hudson Model KitThe perfect complement to the recently released Moebius 1952 Marshall Teague Hudson Hornet , Model King in conjunction with Moebius Models has refined the tooling again and created this limited private production edition of Marshall Teagues's 1953 Fabulous Hudson Hornet Race Car made famous on the beaches of Daytona in the infancy of the now iconic Daytona 500.
The real power of the Hudson comes from the awesome 7X racing engine. Developed by Marshall Teague and Hudson engineer Vince Piggins, the big six had a bigger bore, bigger valves, relieved and polished combustion chambers, high compression head, high performance cam, split dual exhausts, and "Twin H-Power" carbs and manifold. This combination boosted the big straight 6 up to 220 gross horsepower, a jump of 75 horses over the showroom stock figure of 145hp.
The first Limited 1952 Tim Flock Hudson Hornet Racers sold out quickly. Only 3000 with this box and decal are being produced. Pre-orders at the special pre-order price are recommended now.
The Hudson Hornet is an automobile that was produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan between 1951 and 1954. The Hornet was also built by American Motors Corporation (AMC) in Kenosha, Wisconsin and marketed under the Hudson brand between 1955 and 1957.
The Hornet, introduced for the 1951 model year, was based on Hudson's "step-down" design that was first seen in the 1948 model year on the Commodore. The design merged body and frame into a single structure, with the floor pan recessed between the car's frame rails instead of sitting on top of the frame. Thus one "stepped down" into a Hudson. The step-down chassis's "lower center of gravity...was both functional and stylish. The car not only handled well, but treated its six passengers to a sumptuous ride. The low-slung look also had a sleekness about it that was accentuated by the nearly enclosed rear wheels.
