Details: 1946 Hudson Pickup - Owned by Bob and Barbara Bruhn of Los Olivos, CA. Built in
three years by Bob, in his garage, working on it almost full time. The 508 cubic-inch bigblock
Chevy V8 has a GMC 8-71 blower with Hilborn Shotgun fuel-injection hidden in the
blower bonnet. Transmission is a 4L80E with Gear Vendors overdrive mated to a
Speedway Engineering quick-change rear end. The TCI chassis is riding on AccuAir air
suspension. The cab was lengthened by 7 inches, the wheelbase was shortened 8
inches, and the bed was shortened by 18 inches and is painted in House of Kolor paints.
Bob grafted Hudson coupe doors to fit the truck, and the grille was all hand fabricated
using wood prototypes, and the interior was all done by hand. Located in the Valspar
Automotive Group Booth #23013 in Central Hall.
