Hope for historic Hudson


A local passion project is asking for anyone with photos or information about a model of car that is nearly a century old.

The Bacchus Marsh & District Historical Society reposted the request and photos on their social media page, from a man named James, whose father is trying to restore a car from the 1920s.

“My father is in the process of restoring a 1926 Hudson, which was a Bacchus Marsh RACV vehicle at some stage. He is hoping to get it close to original, and we are hoping there may be photos of it filed away somewhere, and that we might be able to find some more information on the car,” James wrote.

“Do you think there may be anything in your archives that could be relevant? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

“Apparently, it did some time on the Western Highway and as mentioned was based out of Bacchus Marsh. We think it was most likely between 1935 and 1950, as it had been cut down, into a tow vehicle, which most likely would not have been done to a new vehicle, and could have been done due to petrol rationing during the war.”

Three photos of the vehicle under restoration were also shared, including the door with an old, faded RACV emblem.
