HUDSON HORNET — SIX — SERIES 7C — The 1953 Hudson Hornet was similar to the previous model bearing the same name, except that the strut bar look was eliminated from the grille and the air scoop hood look was used in its place. Hornets had most equipment used on Wasps plus front rectangular bumper guards; front outer bumper guards; electric clock; large hubcaps; front and rear foam seat cushions; and hydraulic window regulators for convertibles. The rocketship-shaped Hornet front fender and trunk ornaments were seen again. Special decorator check weave nylon upholstery was featured (in the same colors as Wasp interior) and a slim three-spoke steering wheel, with specially positioned horn button, was seen. Below the hood was the H-145 six-cylinder engine, with ‘Power Dome’ aluminum cylinder head standard.
