This vehicle rolled off the production line in April 1950. Purchased by Leo Hebert in 1950 at Vic Hebert Hudson in Denver, CO. Leo was the Service & Parts Manger of the dealership. The car was garaged daily from 1950 till 1960. In 1960 the car was put in long term storage except for occasional use. This car saw very little weather because Leo could drive any car home from the dealership lot. Leo sold it to his son, Jim, in 1992 after Leo was diagnosed with cancer.
