1937 Hudson Terraplane Pickup

We visited Hostetler's Hudson Auto Museum in Shipshewana on Tuesday...for not being all that big it had some really great cars. I did not get photos of all of them...but I did take photos of a few of them. This 1937 Terraplane pickup is probably the one I would like to own the most. Would I drive it if I did own it? I have no idea...I would want to show it off, but I would sure be upset if someone put a scratch on it...and would want to kick myself for having it out.

I don't think the info mentioned anything about the color of this truck...I don't know if this is an original color combination...I wish I had taken photos of the information cards.
The one thing I do remember about this is that it was popular because it was the first truck that had a bed that would hold a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood.
Isn't it a beauty?

Holy cow, that's one cool auto! Have you ever visited The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana? It might be easier to visit their website...

The car and truck both were very nice! Oh to have cars (or trucks) that shiny and bright!

That is a marvelous restoration of what was a fabulous truck to begin with. This is a very creative, custom paint job. What a neat set of pictures.

I'll have to tell Mike there are neat cars in Shipshewana as well as quilts and then I know he'll take me :-) Great photos!
