In co.wc.uu., oj tn worm's b:st opiniqn is
that tnis type o car mar is thi coming idea 1 car.
Tht:e are radical chunscs but they are coming as
sitrejr" as f orecoor c&mc -nd as suddenly.
All tne btsc foreign cars English. French
anc Gtrman will this year exhibit exclusively
this new streamline body. And all men .know
that wnat thiy acopt in body ccsign becomes
Urn vorld-wide vogue.
Our tsigiuro iave added a hundred minor
effects. They have Americanized have Hud
sonizta the type. So tne car is distinctive.
There wil' be no other just like it But it
embodies what we regard as the highest con
ception of the modern trend in bodies.
And we believe that every connoisseur will
consider this new HUDSON Six the hand
somest car exhibited.
We can claim in this car no great advance
as regiacU fine engineering and no HUDSON
owner expects it Fine engineering has limits.
For tne past four years Howard E. Coffin and
his able engineers have given their best to the
HUDSON Last year they brought Sixes
pretty close to perfection. So close that the
HUDSON Six jumped in one year into the
foremost rank among Sixes.
TJwse men have worked out in this new
mode, cair a vast number of minor engineering
imorovements. They have added scores of new
methin'tal features some of them quite im
portant. But we ner expect to build a
much. Detter chassis than we built in our last
This year's advances lie mainly in beauty, in
comfort, in conveniences, in room. We have
combined the best in lines, finish and equip
ment with the best in engineering. We have
succeeded in making the HUDSON Six the
masterpiece it is.
Now the Ideal Car
We now feel that this HUDSON 54 offers the
utmost in every wanted feature. It has the
staunchness of steel Pullmans. t It has the com
fort of Turkish lounging chairs. It has the
speed of express trains. It is free from all the
troubles which annoy the inexpert
No man knows how to build a car more
handsome and impressive. No conveniences are
absent no modern features lacking.
And all these things are here included in a
Six 54, with seven-passenger body, at the record
price of $2250 (f.o.b. Detroit. Michigan).
The New Features
ihese are among the new features we bring
out in this model. No mention is here made of
tho countless features in previous HUDSON
models which we still retain.
