HUDSON JOE COLLECTION Part 3
Harlan Frazier owned some pretty nice rides in his life. For this article we concentrate on his Model A Pick Up. Thanks to Hudson Joe for sharing his collection. The Hudson Joe Collection Part 3.
Hudson Joe from California has a passion for old things and historic photos of Hot Rods and Custom Cars. He has been collecting these photos for many years. Fining them at estate sales, swapmeets and just finding them in the trash. Joe also got a series of photos from some of the old Hot Rodders he knows. One of them is Harlan Frazier, aka Mac Frazier, an old Hotrodder from Burbank, California. Harlan owned some cool Hot Rods and Custom Cars in the 1940’s and 1950’s, and he became good friend with Joe. Harlan will be 90 this year (2016) and he gave his collection of photos to Joe, because he knew Joe would appreciate them much more than anybody else he knew.
For this third article on the Joe Hudson Collection we concentrate on some really great photos of Harlan’s Hot Rod Pick Up he owned in the late 1940’s early 1950’s. An 1928-29 Model A pick Up truck Hot Rod that changed quite a bit over a period of several years. From a wild fender less and hood less Hot Rod with wire wheels in the early 1940’s to a more subtile, very well proportioned full fendered Hot Rod in the later parts of the 1940’s. At first an older rear portion of the pick-up boy was used with the more sweeping back. Later a ’29 Model A squire type back was added to the car. Harlan loved to take photos and experimented with his Hot Rod and Custom Car photos for several school projects. We are very glad he took so many photos back then, to give us a great look at the cars from the Burbank California area in the 1940’s and early 1950’s.
Fendered Pick Up
Full fendered and a stock hood and a fresh coat of primer. Harlan also replaced the wire wheels with 1940 Ford steelies with 40 Ford hubcaps and beauty rings. The three guys in the roadster are Harlan his brother and good friend.
