Description

1938 Hudson 112 Saloon

A charming, chunky and substantial car, with bags of charm and character. It lollops along with a delightful, easy-going demeanour, like a friendly, soppy Labrador! A huge amount of effort has gone into refurbishing the car, and it is in lovely condition, running and driving really sweetly. Work has included a full re-spray, interior refurbishment, complete re-wire, alternator conversion, flashing indicators, re-cored radiator, stainless steel exhaust system and much more besides. The underside of the car needs to be seen to be believed - fully cleaned, re-painted, etc, clean as a whistle, sound as a bell. Comes with a bundle of invoices for work carried out, history, owner’s handbook, workshop manual, etc. Has a military look to it, particularly being finished in an appealing shade of greenish-grey. Right hand drive, UK registered when new, and as far as we can tell, was with the first, lady owner until her death in the early 1980s then retained by her chauffeur until the 1990s.

Snippets: The Lady of the Lathe

From the notes accompanying the car it would appear that the Hudson was owned by Lady Emma Thynne who at the time of buying the Hudson was the Marchioness of Northampton having wed the 6th Marquess in 1921.  Both families had interesting liaisons – in 1913 the Marquess was sued by Daisy Markham (an actress) for “Breach of Promise” after the Marquess broke their engagement shortly after he inherited the title, the cost to the Northampton family then was £50,000 which today would be around £4m! During WWI Longleat, the Thynne family home was used as a hospital and during the war period had over 2,000 patients, the Thynne children did their share of war-work with Lady Kathleen acting as secretary of Longleat Hospital later she worked at the YMCA canteen in Abbeville, John Thynne (the eldest son) died at Vermelles in 1916 aged just 21, Lady Emma worked as a Lathe Turner at a Munitions factory in Kent.  The Thynne-Northampton wedding in 1921 was titled by various newspapers as “The Match of the Season”, the couple divorced in 1941.
