Unflatteringly referred to as the \"Hash,\" the 1955-1957 Hudson Hornet was the predictable result of the Hudson-Nash merger that created American Motors in 1954. Based on a re-skinned Nash platform and not the revolutionary “Monobilt Step-Down” Hudsons, these transitional cars were produced on the Kenosha, Wisconsin assembly lines instead of Hudson's venerable Detroit factory. Styling of the 1955-1957 Hudson Hornet was quite unique, but to most observers, became progressively more controversial each model year they were built. The 1955 Hornet was the cleanest model of this trio in terms of styling, with a broad “eggcrate” style grille and distinctive two-tone paint finishes. For 1956, the \"V-Line Styling\" theme was an attempt to place Hudson's traditional triangular logo shape throughout the car, with anodized aluminum appliqués. The last Hudson-badged cars appeared for 1957 with rather gaudy styling. The Hornet's legendary six, with and without Twin H-Power, was offered through 1956, Packard's 320 V-8 for 1955 and the first half of 1956, and finally AMC's new 327-cid V-8 in 1957. A late 1956-only Hornet Special came with AMC's new 250-cid V-8 and a lower price tag. A companion Wasp series was also fielded for 1955-1956, based on the shorter-wheelbase Nash Statesman with less ornate trim. It was replaced by the Hornet Super for 1957, while the more deluxe version was called the Hornet Custom, with the models built that year marking the final appearance of the venerable Hudson name.

This 1956 Hornet Custom 6 ‘Twin H-Power’ Sedan was purchased by Eldon Hostetler on June 22, 1996, when he attended a public auction held in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. At the time, fewer than 10,000 miles were indicated. According to Mr. Hostetler’s autobiography, it was formerly part of an estate. Very well-preserved and attractively presented, this ‘Twin H-Power’ 1956 Hornet is well-equipped with automatic transmission, clock, heater, radio, power brakes, and two-tone paint with eye-catching pink/gray vinyl and cloth upholstery. A 1956 Hudson Hornet owner’s manual and 1979 Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club Roster are included. Rounding out the timeline of the Hostetler Hudson Collection, this 1956 Hornet Custom 6 Sedan is powered by the venerable 308-cid ‘Twin H-Power’ six-cylinder engine and represents the last vestige of Hudson DNA in production to go along with AMC’s use of the Hudson nameplate.
