Remember These Facts
The Hudson Super-Six, in the past year, has
won all the: worth-while records. It has shown
itself the supreme performer in every sort of feat.
That fact is recorded- in a . hundred records,
many of them official. - Let no mere claims out
weigh them. '.. , '
And all those records prove super-endurance.
Its speed tests, its hill climbs, its long distance
records all were won by that.
The whole advantage of the Super-Six lies in
minimizing friction. Motor wear is almost noth
ing. That was ever the chief aim in motor car
engineering. It is, by all odds, the chief thing to
consider. - ' . '
The Super-Six is a Hudson patent. That's why
every ruse and scheme is used to minimize it. To
choose that motor means to choose the Hudson.
And you'll do that when you know.
