Description
Lot #5035 - Hudson designer, Frank Spring (who left Murphy Coachbuilders in the '30s to join Hudson), contracted with Carrozzeria Touring of Milan to build 25 production models of his dream sports car. Touring created a Superleggera coupe with an aluminum unibody built over a steel tub frame. Spring designed doors cut 7" into the roof for ease of entry, which he pioneered on some Duesenbergs. Unique to the Italia were custom bucket seats, Borrani knock-off wheels, air ducts in the body for brake cooling and triple exhaust pipes which served as stop, brake and back-up lights. Each car cost Hudson $28,000 to build and sold for $4,800. This car, body number 21, has had four owners. For the past 30 years it has remained in a private collection. The Pebble Beach quality restoration was completed in 2012.
