Usually, I’m a bigger fan of Hudson in darker colors, as the thicker shades hide some of the rather unusual lines. This time, I was mistaken. This ivory convertible Hornet is exactly what the “Step-Down” design should be, and I’m happy that I was able to photograph it last fall. Not many convertibles survive from this model line, and with a sunvisor, wire wheel covers, wide white wall tires, and slathers upon slathers of chrome, I couldn’t resist the allure. Enjoy the photos of this rarely-seen American boulevard cruiser.
