ID 132...

im guessin those are maybachs....the pic is shot at pebble beach...coachwork appears to be by spohn...

again, each car of these marques has its own coachwork, so its kinda difficult to make a certain judgement unless ur aware of that particular car...for example, delahaye, delage, and talbot logo, all featured very very similar bodies by individual coachbuilders...the only distinguishing factor externally is the headlights and radiator grille usually...all the same, keep the exotics comin!

cheers

True Karl, ID:135 is indeed the 1953 Hudson Hornet club coupe.

1953 was the last year for the Hudson company which merged with Nash-Kelvinator. When I was a kid, India had only two refrigerator models, both with the rounded art-deco styling: The Allwyn-Prestcold and the Kelvinator.

Hudson's L-head straight six-cyl. 5048 cc (308 cu. in) engine with two single-barrel carbs produced 170 bhp at 3800rpm. The engine could be tuned to produce 240 bhp if equipped with the factory 7-X modifications -- the Hudson factory's plan for customers that wanted more.
These mods included...
  1. Bigger Bore,
  2. Bigger Valves,
  3. Modified combustion chambers,
  4. Split dual exhausts,
  5. High performance cam,
  6. High compression head, and
  7. 'Twin H-Power' carburetors and manifold.


The result was 240 bhp and over 373 Newton-metre of torque.

To accommodate this increase in power, the suspension, brakes and axle where beefed up and reinforced. The low CG, superb handling, and potent engine left the competition in the dust.

Quote...
It was raced in many hill-climbs where its power and torque were complemented by its superb handling and responsive steering. The body was aerodynamic with its enclosed wheels and curvy and sloping body. Its Achilles' heal was its weight and its size. It looked out of place when matched up against other vehicles in its class which often included Triumph Spitfires, MGBs, Mustangs, and even Firebirds. It quickly amassed many victories, proving its superior engg and the skill of its driver. Those who knew of the car respected it; those who did not often mocked the car and its owner. After the race when they had been thoroughly beaten and embarrassed they would angrily ask the owner what kind of engine was powering the Hudson. When it was revealed that its was just a six-cylinder engine their embarrassment and anger grew even greater but a new found respect was created.
