Former $1200 and $1400 cars now cost abnu"
as much as a Hudson Super-Six.
Xo changes warrant such an increase. They
are practically the same as the cars which re
cently sold at S200 to S300 less than the Hud
Cars in the S2000 class and up have in
creased from $350 to S700. That removes
them further from the Hudson Super-d price.
Increased, cost of material is responsible for
the higher prices.
Hudson prices have not increased this year.
Our materials were contracted for months ago.
When present supplies are exhausted, then, too,
mibt Hudsons cost more. Until then Hud
son, because of its value is the lowest priced
car on the market.
Here is an indication of how prices have
been affected. Consider just one item.
The principal material in a fine automobile
is steel. All steel is made from iron.
For 2 vcars before the Great War the av
erage price of iron was a few cents over Si f
a ton. In December last it was S30 a ton It
now is S54 a ton.
.Makers who bought materials this year
must get more for their cars than for those
built of materials bought last year.
Good Fortune for
Kven when other cars sold at S200 to S300
k-sy, Super-Six sales exceeded those of any
two makes in the Si 200 to $1400 class. Now
that there is 110 such difference in price you
can-realize how much greater will be the de
mmd for Hudsons. The present supply won't
last long. Then Hudson, too. must cost more.
There can be no preference now that for
mer cheaper cars cost as much as the Super-d.
Super-Six endurance makes it the prefer
red among fine cars. In ever revealing test it
has proved endurance unequalled by any oth
All Due to the
Hudson leadership is due to the Super-Six
motor. Xo other motor is like it. It mini
mizes vibration. That increases power and
lengthens motor life. Vibration is the most
destructive force, in a motor. All Hudson
tests show how by minimizing vibration en
durance is obtained. The Super-Six is the
most powerful automobile motor of its size
Xo owner lias yet discovered tbe real lim
its of Super-Six endurance and almost 40.00
Super-Sixes are now in daily service.
Endurance is the most wanted quality of a
motor car. A car should not wear out soon.
It should not require frequent mechanical at
tention. That Hudson has proved.
1 You Need No Greater
Proof for Hudson.
A double transcontinental run with a seven
passenger phaeton broke every previous rec
ord each way. Pike's Peak, up the highest and
longest mountain road in the world, was
climbed by a Super-Six special in less time
than anv other car. Twenty-two of the world's
fastest special cars contested. A stock chasis
established the record for the fastest mile. A
stock Super-Six phaeton made the fastest time
tor one hour. Carrying driver and one pas
senger, car fully equipped, it traveled 100
miles at an average of 74.67 miles per hour.
A stock chasis made the greatest 24-hour
long-distance run on record. It covered 1810
miles in that time and at the stop showed
nothing to indicate that its endurance had been
Put these tests, greater than any other car
ever made, were not enough to reveal the lim
its of Hudson endurance. Then special rac
ing cars were built that they might compete on
the speed. way with the world's fastest, most
carefully built automobiles. The same princi
ple that accounts for Hudson endurance in
the stock cars is included in these.
The American Speedway record for 2tv
miles was established by one of them at an
average speed of 104 miles an hour.
That speed for that distance calls for en
durance beyond that which ordinarily is need
ed in a lifetime's requirements. These are
proofs of Hudson endurance. They indicate
the service you may expect from a Hudson
Super-Six. If such tests mean nothing to you
because of their extremes, then think what the
service to almost 40.000 timers means. Theie
can be no greater assurance than that.
There is no udz'iwUuic now in buying aiv-th-.
er car. not even the apparent saving in the
first cost price.
Put the number of Super-Sixes that can be
built from last year's material purchases is
limited. 1 f you are to get your car at the pres
ent price it must be from that number. VOL
must decide soon.
