Car Photo of the Day: Name the Mystery Car

Filed under: Car Photo Of The Day — chuck goolsbee @ 3:02 pm

I was helping a friend load some of his stuff into a storage locker, and as we exited the premises I stumbled upon this wondrous old moldy thing. I’ve ‘shopped off the identifying bits (I hope) and now it is up to you dear reader to fill in the blanks… recognize this machine?


It is indeed a 1956 Hudson Hornet:

  1. I think it is an American Motors creation. I keep wanting to say Hudson, but I don’t think that is it. It was probably the last of its line. It certainly is ugly.

  5. RogParish got it: That’s a Hornet grill. Looks odd from this angle, though.
