1954 Hudson Super Wasp

I was given this car in about 1978. It was owned by the Uglies, a club of which I became a member in 1977. It was once a dragster, powered by a blown 392 Hemi. It already had a Plymouth Suburban diff, but no running gear when it was given to me. I put a 318 Polysphere engine in it and a push button torqueflite. I only got to drive it once before I was sent to the USA on a posting. A few years later, when I returned, the car was ruined, having sat under a gum tree for the whole time I was away. I sold it, and it changed hands a few times before it turned up at the CRAKK run in 2015, all finished and looking great in black gloss.
