Arrival of the ’49 Hudson (video)

Garrett Hedlund (portraying Neal Cassady in the upcoming film adaptation of Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’, directed by Walter Salles) drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco on December 7th, 2011 to deliver the 1949 Hudson used in the movie to The Beat Museum. Accompanying Hedlund were John Allen Cassady (son of the real Neal) and Al Hinkle (‘Big Ed Dunkel’ in the book, and the last living man to have accompanied Jack & Neal).

The 1949 Hudson is now on ongoing public display at the Beat Museum
