Well, at least there are two of them that were made. I remember seeing one on ebay a few years ago. The seller didn't know too much more about it but what the box showed. The tool was in the box, but only some of the spikes in a bag, no boxes. Definitely a conversation piece. Nice find.

Nice Hudson and PA's mopac. I think the Hudson was Gilbert's best looking steamer.

I have 2 northerns, one big motor, one smaller motor. They both run good but maybe its in my head but I would rather have the large motor. A Hudson with large motor figure 200 or more for a nice one. I keep
looking for a large motor in anything that seller does not know and no one else sees it. LOL, has not happened yet.

I had a chance to get 2 of these from flyguy55 and I jumped on it.
They are some of my favorite cars.

They are pretty nice. The one on the right has some age cracks in the brown roof paint.
Roof paint seems thicker on that one. No paint flaking.
