Anyone know if this car is a six or a eight? Maybe a twin h powered car?

With various interior details available during the Hudson's movie scenes was someone able to precisely ID as a '48?
(My understanding is that from the outside, all '48's and '49's were identical.)

ask the guys at Twin H Garage in GA www.twinhgarage.com
I was there last week and the very 48 Hudson Commodore from the movie was in the shop being spiffed up.
I love Hudsons because they look cool and they are filled with amazing inovations.
Also Hudsons are still available out there and cheeper than you might think.

Just watched Driving Miss Daisy yesterday and fell in love with this car all over again.

Did some research. If the Standard Catalog of American Cars is correct, this is a '49 rather than a '48.
According to that book, a locking storage compartment on the driver's side of the Commodore dash was not added until the 1949 model year.
(See thumbnail #4)
Also checked out the 1948 brochure which shows a lock on the passenger side box only.

Will change listing to 1949 pending any dissent.

I say 5 stars. Chapman's Car Compendium by Giles Chapman names this as a Hudson Hornet, but I'm fairly sure we're right with Commodore.

You can be more than fairly sure, Classic.
The "Hornet" name was not in use in 1949.
(The first Hornet was the 1951 model.)

One of my all-time favorite movie cars and how it was presented.

Thanks for the extra shots, Darkbaron.
It's now one of the best-documented cars on the site.

Here is a link to the Barrett-Jackson auction site 1949 Hudson:

Was reviewing the car they sold. Note the difference in the driver's side view mirror. A change done later? Different car?
(Everything else seems to match perfectly.)
