Hudson highlighted the 1951 model with a new "Step Down, Monobilt" unitized frame and chassis, an early version of the "unit body" concept. The 308 cid L-head engine generated 145 HP @ 3,800 RPM. The lowered center of gravity made Hudson a formidable competitor on the early NASCAR tracks. In addition to the cut-down windshield and deeply scooped doors, the rear quarter panels were radiused and lengthened, with a custom trunk treatment and continental kit. Other features include Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, heater, push button radio and auxiliary gauges. Sure to be a hit at your next Parade or Car Show.
