Police Sting!

This is a Hornet worthy of its name.

In 1951 the Hudson Hornet boasted the largest six-cylinder engine in the world.  This car featured the H-145 engine which measured 308 cubic inches along with dual carburetors that produced around 145 horsepower at 3800 rpm's and measured at 275 lb/ft of torque.  Wow!  It's no wonder this car dominated stock car racing in the early '50s.

The first-generation Hornets featured a chassis with a lower center of gravity, which is one of the reasons it made a great racing machine.  From the dropped floor pan to the streamlined styling, this is a car that sings of luxury.  Underneath all that luxurious sheen is a mighty motor, itching to push the limits on and off the road.

The Franklin Mint has turned this beloved car into a highly collectible model.  This replica is done in 1/24 scale and measures around 8" long.  It's painted in a classic black and white police paint scheme with police decals on both of the coupe's doors.  To top it all off (literally) there is an era-correct police radio, sirens, and lights, completing the package.

The windows are clear, giving a good view of the detailed interior.  You can also open the trunk, hood, and doors for a closer inspection.

This is a limited edition replica of only 1,500 models worldwide - once they're gone, they're gone for good.
