  • 1952 Hudson Hornet 6 "Twin-H Power"

Principal and auctioneer John Kruse says "this pioneering collection was indeed highly influential in my own life, having contacted Eldon Hostetler as a teenager and been treated to a private tour from him. Our desire is that collectors will embrace this heritage of the Hostetlers' and the Hudson Motor Car Company, the people associated with it and the many unique and even one-off automobiles produced. We look forward to finding the next custodians for these exceptional vehicles, that the next generation may continue to build on this incomparable legacy."
