This finely built Club Coupe is powered by its powerful 308-cid, 170-hp inline six-cylinder engine that has the optional Twin H Power package. This is connected to a three-speed column-mounted manual transmission. The car is also fitted with power steering.
The car is finished in Palm Beach Green and its data tag confirms this is the correct original color (code 163) for this car. The exterior is highlighted by stylish trim and brightwork, special Hornet emblems, functional and subtle air scoops on the hood, fender skirts, exterior window shades, chrome wire wheels and whitewall tires. The spare also uses a chrome wire wheel.
The interior appears original and is equipped with Hudson Weather Control and an AM radio. The owner’s manual is still in the glove box.
The 1954 model year marked the last for Hudson before its merger with Nash/Kelvinator.
