1952 Hudson Hornet Hollywood Coupe
A stellar combination of glamour and performance
A leader in both style and performance among Hudson offerings in the early 1950s, this 1952 Hudson Hornet Hollywood Coupe is a rare affair to encounter today. Coming from the factories of a company that was producing offerings boasting innovative exterior styling and NASCAR-winning engines, the Hollywood moniker helped further set these cars apart as the glamorous autos they aspired to be.
This example, equipped with the Twin H-Power Package and the respected 308 CI engine, was recently treated to a service by Wayne Carini at F40 Motorsports, and its presentation at Mecum’s recent Harrisburg auction was stunning enough to take the bidding to $61,000. Clean, straight lines and near-pristine interior appointments surely helped make it an easy car to fall in love with, and its new owner is likely quite satisfied with this stellar starlet now nestled neatly in the garage.
