This one of a kind custom Roadster started life as a 1933 Hudson Terraplane Coupe. It was completely designed from the ground up by Aaron Kaufman of Gas Monkey Garage / Fast n’ Loud fame. The build was started at Gas Monkey Garage by Aaron and finished in Tyler Texas. Once the car was completed Aaron made a special trip out to see the finished product. Aaron inspected the entire car and approved of the final build outcome, only noting he would possibly shorten the wheelbase by moving the front axle back some. The car officially got Aaron’s stamp of approval by him autographing the center console.
Body started out as ’33 Hudson Terraplane Coup and converted to open top roadster. The front grill is a narrowed 1930’s International truck and a custom metal chrome grill insert was fabricated.
