Former $1200 to $1400 Cars Advanced to Super-Six
Price Hudson Cost, too, Must Soon Go Up
Material costs have increased so much and so fast lately that all automobile prices
must be advanced. ttefr4&
So far the Super-Six ' remains at the price it has sold at all this year. That it because
present cars are built of materials contracted for last year before the biggest increases be
Since January some car prices have been advanced twice, increases run from $200
to $300 on cheaper cars than the Hudson, and from $350 to $700 on cars which sold above
the Super-Six price.
Until Hudson prices must be advanced a Super-Six can be bought for about lht
same price as cars which recently sold at $1200 lo $1400. '
Take 'Time by the Forelock.
Elsewhere in this issue of the Jour
nal will be found another advertise
ment for Louie Puis, of the Murray
Super-Six agency, giving you some
interesting figures and talk on this
famous car. There will be a sharp
advance in the price of this car in
the near future, and Mr. Puis wants
to talk to you along these lines be
fore the advance comes. He has been
very busy with the erection of his
new garage in Murray, and will be
unable to call and see you, and if
you are interested in the Super-Six,
now is the time to talk to him, and
the favor will be greatly appreciat
ed if you will call and see him the
next time you are in or near Murray.

Hudson Choice When Others Cost Less
Even when such cars sold at $200 to
$300 less than the Super-Six its sales were
greater than those of any two makes of
tJieir class. Everyone who knows will
choose a Hudson as against such cars
now that there is so little difference in
their cost. No material change has been
made in design or construction. They
are practically the same as when sold for
much less than present prices.
Hudson leadership is understood by all
motorists. All know the effectiveness of
the Super-Six motor. No other car has or
can have a motor like it. That is why no
other car has ever, equaled its record for
Almost 40,000 owners now drive Su
per Sixes. They have made records that
to many are quite as impressive as those
made on the speedway and in contests,
which have been extensively advertised.
The Super-Six is a lifetime car. Its
great endurance is due to the smoothness
of the Super-Six motor. It minimizes vi
bration. Vibration is the most destructive
force in a motor. All Hudson tests show
how by minimizing vibration endurance
The Super-Six is the most powerful
automobile motor of its size known. By
minimizing vibration most of the power
is delivered and is not as with other types
consumed within the motor.
More Proof for Hudson
If you have followed Super-Six his
tory you have been interested in each suc
ceeding test and how it has called for
greater and greater endurance. At first
we did not know the limits of Hudson
endurance. Then we felt we could rest
content if the car would hold up in the
one hour and the 1 00-mile trial. That
was greater than anjr other car had done.
But, the Super-Six showed no wear at
the end of those runs. We wanted to
know just what its true limits were so
new tests were made. Each succeeding
trial was made harder in an effort to re
veal the real limits of Super-Six endur
ance. No such test has yet been found.
Each Test More Trying.
When there were no more revealing
stock car tests to be made then special
racing cars were built. 1 he same princi
ple which accounts for the endurance in
stock cars was built into the racing cars.
On the speedway in competition with the
fastest, most carefully built automobiles
in the world, the Super-Six specials made
records unequaled by any racing cars in
the history of racing.
In nine championship races twenty
two entries were made. All save one fin
ished within the money; an accident forc
ed that one car out.
Hudson specials won first in four
events; second in six; third in two; fourth
in three; fifth in three; sixth, seventh and
eighth in one each.
These records mean much to all who
are familiar with the terrific strains en
countered at high speeds. One hundred
miles at racing speed calls for greater en
durance than a year of ordinary use.
Almost 40,000 Cars Prove It.
But, if thesq records do not mean so
much to you then think of the almost 40,
000 cars that individual owners are using.
Recall what you must have heard in the
way of praise for the Super-Six from
those owners you know. The Super-Six
is known in every community. You do
not have to go far to find a Super-Six en
thusiast. There is a Super-Six for every
six miles of improved roadway in America
Can there, with such evidence as to
Super-Six quality, be any choice now
when compared to cars that now sell in
the Super-Six price class?
When there was a difference of $200
to $300 some did buy other cars because
of the apparent saving. Now all must
choose the Super-Six . Such preference
will soon exhaust the supply of materials
bought in last year's most favorable mar
ket. Then the price of the Super"Six must
be advanced. Until that time judged by
the standards of other cars in performance
and price, the Super-Six is the best auto
mobile value on the market.
But you must not delay if you are to
get a Super-Six at its present advantage
