Make Hudson
History          
Year 1949
Bought by Mike Hopkins from a small dealer in Grey Street Bulawayo in mid 1961 for £145. Sold to someone in Salisbury in 1964 for £27. In 1963 Mike took the car to Mike Appel (engine overhaulers) in Byo because the oil pressure warning light was on. They advised the engine required a full overhaul. This they carried out but on the final day of their work they dicovered that the light was still on!!! A new sensor was fitted and the light stayed off!! The Hudson straight 8 engine was the most silent engine that he has ever experienced and the car often returned 22 miles per gallon on long trips.
