Really Big Project: 1939 Hudson Country Club

I’ve never been much of a country club kind of guy, I’m not that into tennis or golf. However, if I owned a 1939 Hudson Country Club Sedan I’m sure I would be joining the local country club! Think how cool you’d feel rolling up to the country club in your Country Club Sedan. This particular example is in need of a complete restoration and is missing a bumper and the grille. These are quite rare, so finding those parts could be a challenge. If you are up for the challenge though, you can find this awesome barn find here on eBay in¬†Grove City, Ohio with a BIN of $2,800.

I’m genuinely surprised that the seller isn’t asking more for this project, although I think it’s about right for something this rough. There really aren’t many of these out there, so pricing it is difficult. I found one other Country Club Sedan project that sold recently and it had an asking price of $6k. It had it’s original grille and rear bumper, but it was also customized with a 454 V8 and a Tran Am rear end. This example might be missing a few pieces, but personally I’d rather have an original example that hasn’t been messed with.

This is going to be a huge project to undertake and finding parts won’t be easy. The reason this one is missing parts in the first place is because they were used on a much more desirable 2 door sedan, so one can only assume that means you won’t find replacements anytime soon. Thankfully, the engine looks to be complete, let’s just hope it isn’t seized!

I can’t say I would buy this project just so I could go hang out at the country club, but it’s definitely cool enough to undertake as a classic to cruise around in, take to car shows and to park at the ritziest country club in town (especially if it leaks a little oil). So could you see yourself driving around in this Hudson?

    Ohio is a title state and they are sticklers about it so, just F.Y.I.

    At $2800.00 I don’t think there will be a market for this ole’ gal. Unless your plan is to customize everything. That may work.

    Can somebody explain what a “title state” is?



      I believe it means that Ohio issues a title for all vehicles regardless of how old the vehicle is. Some states only issue titles for cars newer than a certain year which varies according to each state.

    You can get a title easily for this car.
