I just checked online regarding Northwestern Auto Supply and one link came up “permanently closed”.

Does anyone have further information. Sam was excellent to work with and had a ton of Hudson parts.

    I am so sorry to hear that. Sam helped me with my ‘35 by fabricating a new set of brake cables, he had the original style butterfly thermostats, side water jackets, brake pads, etc ALL NOS

    and a very interesting man.

    the hobby lost one of it’s great ones.
