The Supreme Car
With a Patented Motor
"SSfa-ftelS" Which is 80 More Efficient
76 h. p. From a 5ma, Light Six
HAVE you any doubt that the Hudson
Super-Six U the greatest car erer built?
If o, you should make some tests. Before
you buy car for years to come, these are some
claims to settle.
THE FASTEST CAR
The Super-Sii is not built for speed. But speed
is one way to prove its efficiency.
The Super-Six has made the fastest speed ever
made by a touring stock car.
The Super-Sig is the most powerful motor in the
world with tike cylinder capacity. A new principle,
patented by Hudson, has added 8-0 per cent to motor
efficiency, This size of motor, at its beat, used to
deliver about 4J horsepower,
In the Super-fcis it delivers 7(1
horsepower, No other type -Si,
Might or Twelve approaches the
Super. Si in etficiency.
This vst reaervg power- this add
ed 80 per tflnt comes through end'
Ing vibration. In the Super-Sig ws
stum utter smnhnea, The motor
fmtion, whuh caused wtar, is
davf d U alnuvet nothing,
V'.nejtii hit Is neatly doubled.

wasted la here turned to reserve power. In ordi
nary driving the Super-Six is never run at more
than half-load. The motor ia never taxed. That
means economy In fuel and m wear.
The Super-Six will out-perform any other car
that's built. It has done what no other car haa
done. It has climbed hills on high gear which
never before have been climbed on high gear, It
excels in quick acceleration.
Never was a car ao flexible, Never a car with
such bird like motion at high speed. You can
prove theae facts in 30 minutes by a ride In the
THE CAR YOU WANT
The Super-Six is the car you want,
if you buy a fine car, You don't want
less efficiency, lets smoothness, lest
endurance. To buy a car without this
motor will surely mean years of regret.
Rivals will argue otherwise. Hut
find out for yourself, The Super-Sis
Is e illusive to Hudson, sa others are
bound to question It.
If you order now you can get a Su
per JU by the time t roads art
ready. And it s well oith waiting for.
Coins and let us prove that.
