Of the four known surviving 1942 Hudson woodies, it is regarded as the most accurately and completely restored. Equipped with the optional electric overdrive, the car also has an AM radio and turn signals. It has Hudson's workhorse 212 cubic inch L-head six- cylinder engine, the larger of two sixes offered, which develops 102 bhp. The car also bears the well-known Hudson hallmarks of Triple –Safe brakes, which activate the mechanical emergency brake should the hydraulics fail, and smooth-engaging oil-filled cork clutch. Hudson station wagons, due to their low production, were essentially custom built. Thus there are variations both from factory literature and between cars. This car has rear fenders with full-wheeled cutouts, as seen in Hudson's 1942 catalogue. Two of the four surviving wagons, however, have the “semi-skirted” fenders used on sedans, coupes and convertibles. Since restoration, this car has received nearly 20 awards, including Antique Automobile Club of America National Junior, Senior and Preservation Award.
