Regarding This Vehicle

1951 Hudson Pacemaker Convertible

1951 Hudson Pacemaker Convertible. The Pacemaker Custom Six Series was the most popular of the Hudson models built.  This Hudson is sleek, low and aerodynamic. A well maintained older restoration. This Hudson has been refinished in a period  correct colors of dark red with a matching, dark red interior. A rare and desirable car.


At the close of World War II, the American automobile manufacturers immediately resumed automobile production, which had been halted due to their involvements in the war effort. From 1946 until 1948, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler immediately offered “refreshed” versions of their 1941 and 1942 models as they had no time to re-tool and redesign new cars. Hudson did the same in 1946 and 1947, but in 1948 introduced an entirely re-designed automobile known as the “step downs.” The Hudson’s step-down cars for 1948 marked a new direction for the company. The new cars were built with a partial uni-body design that had the floor pan on the bottom of the frame rather than on the top. This resulted in one literally stepping down to enter a Hudson.  They were sleek, low and aerodynamic. The roofline was low, but there was still plenty of room inside. Its low center of gravity made for excellent handling. The new cars appeared on December 7, 1947. “You’re face to face with tomorrow,” said the ads. Both dealers and the public were elated with the new models. Sales for 1948 jumped nearly 50 percent over 1947, and Hudson rose from 13th to 11th place in the market.

For the 1951 model year, Hudson offered four different models powered by six and eight cylinder engines. The Pacemaker Custom Six Series was the most popular of the models built. The Pacemaker was offered in five different body styles. The Convertible Brougham was the most expensive of the five styles offered and also produced in the smallest amounts, which makes them very desirable amongst collectors today.The Pacemaker Custom Convertible Brougham offered here is outfitted its original, 232 cubic inch, six-cylinder engine that produces 112 horsepower. It is a well-maintained, older restoration that has been refinished in a period correct color of dark red with a matching, dark red interior. The mileage indicated is about 12,000, which is likely to be the mileage accumulated since the restoration was completed.

The paint shows very well and has a consistent overall gloss. The chrome and stainless trim items were restored at the time of restoration and today show well. The red pleated interior is period correct and extremely nice. The seats, door panels, and carpets are in excellent condition. The car has a newer, black Hartz top, which fits well and is in good condition.

The engine bay is also extremely clean and presents well. Underneath, the car is clean and only shows the expected signs of use that one would expect from a car that has been carefully enjoyed. The car runs and drives well.

This 1951 Pacemaker convertible is well equipped with many factory and period accessories including a desirable set of five, chrome wire wheels that are fitted with white wall tires. Other accessories include dual spotlights, bumper guards, Hudson-script Unity fog lights, a Hudson heater, radio and a tissue dispenser.

This car has a great overall look to it. It presents well from all angles. It has been restored properly and well maintained since the restoration was completed. For the enthusiast who wants to drive and enjoy a step-down Hudson, there is simply no better choice than this rare 1951 Convertible Brougham.
