Vehicle descriptionIn 1952 the "twin h-power" version now standard equipment with dual single-barrel carburetors atop a dual-intake manifold. The hood featured a functional scoop that ducts cold air to the carburetors and was considered "ventilation" in 1954, rather than ram air. The engine could be tuned to produce 210HP (157 KW) when equipped with the "7-x" modifications that Hudson introduced later. During 1952 and 1953 the hornet received minor cosmetic enhancements, and still closely resembled the commodore of 1948. The Hornet proved to be nearly invincible in stock-car racing. Despite its racing successes...sales began to languish. Hudson's competitors, using separate body-on-frame designs, could change the look of their models on a yearly basis without expensive chassis alterations whereas the hornet's modern, sophisticated unibody design was expensive to update, so it "was essentially locked in" and suffered against the planned obsolescence of the big three [General Motors, Ford and Chrysler] automakers. A total of 35,921 hornets were produced for 1952, with approximately 2160 hardtops and 360 convertibles. This superb automobile is equipped with twin h carbs finished off in gulf green with a dark green convertible top and black interior. A twelve-year concourse restoration in Sweden at a cost of $300,000!!! 100 point concourse show condition, this car is a very rare find!!! Have you ever seen one? This is believed to be one of only a few to be left in the world!
