132 Hudson Six Forty (1915)
Hudson Six Forty (1915) Registration Number LO 5916 Following fact finding missions by Roy Chapin, he became impressed with superiority of the six cylinder engine and encouraged partner Huch Coffin to developed a Hudson Six cylinder unit., also European bodies of mostly steel were stronger and lighter than contemporary American timber bodies. The result was the Six Forty the first medium priced, Six of a moderate weight. With four speed transmission plus overdrive it was both fast and economical. This car was found in a barn in Nebraska in 1990. Having been there since 1919 and sold at Sotheby's in 1991. Now owned by motoring enthusiast and doyen of Bexhill 100 Motoring Club Nick Bacon. When Nick purchased the car the engine block was found to be cracked. It was stripped and repaired during 2005 with very little renovation work needed on the bodywork.

I have to go outside for the sanding and chemical work. I am strengthening the LOC IV to withstand the pressure wave and fin flutter of Mach 1 and 47 G's of acceleration on a J350 motor (according to Rocksim). I coated the fins with JB Weld and added a metal motor retention nozzle, metal clamps for the kevlar shock cord, and a kevlar chute protector. JB Weld can be used to repair cracked engine blocks on tractors, but will probably not be strong enough. The more experienced rocketeers recommend fiberglass or carbon fiber.
The baby in my other hand is the nose cone for my new V2 project. I sank metal pins through the tip to secure 1.5 lbs of lead buck shot and epoxy (to shift the center of gravity ahead of the center of pressure, the essential rule in the "rocket science" of stability).
