1952 Hudson Wasp

Some short-lived car models are the result of poor consumer demand, some are morphed into other styles, and still others suffer the demise of the very company that created them. During the early 1950s, Hudson Motor Company was beginning to struggle to compete with bigger auto companies like Ford and Chrysler. When the Hudson Wasp debuted in 1952, it was largely based on the Hudson Pacemaker. It came as a two or four-door sedan, convertible, or two-door hard top.
