Ypsilanti to host Hudson Motor Car museum
Question of the Day
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Plans call for the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum to be partially renovated and become the home of the National Hudson Motor Car Company Museum.
The site of the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum was home to a Hudson dealership from 1933-57 and currently houses a showroom display dedicated to Hudson vehicles. A partnership for the new museum was announced this week, The Ann Arbor News reported (http://bit.ly/SFviMF ).
The partnership with the Hudson Essex Terraplane Historical Society will form the National Hudson Motor Car Company Museum. Bill Nickels, board secretary of the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum, said the project’s vision includes changing displays and a small theater.
“There is a huge amount of work to be done,” Nickels said.
Several models are expected to be on display. Inside a showroom, one car will be on display annually. In addition to a display of detailed information about the car, the showroom’s decor - including signs and ad materials - will be changed to reflect the time the car was sold.
A grand opening for the Hudson museum is scheduled for Sept. 21 and will coincide with the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum’s car show at Riverside Park. Renovation has begun and other displays on General Motors, Tucker and Kaiser-Frazer vehicles will remain.
“We really tell four stories here,” Nickels said. “Hudson is one of four major stories we tell.”
The Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum will get some funding from the Hudson Essex Terraplane Historical Society as part of the partnership. A $5 fee to enter the museum is already in place. That money, along with gift shop sales and donations, will fund the museums.
