Still Have An Opportunity
to Purchase a Hudson Car
Our original allotment of 1910 Hudson Cars has been7
sold. but we recently succeeded in persuading the
factory to give us a few extra Touring Cars and
Roadsters for early delivery.
The Hudson is not only safe and strong, inex
pensivc to keep, but is big, handsome, comfor?
table. It is the best looking car in its class. It
has good lines, showing clever design and carcful
proportioning. No car rides any easier?rfew as
easy. Note the foot room in front?the big 18
incji steering wheel?the rake of the stccring post
?the curved accelerator which fits the foot
These refinements are mo?3r. appreciated when
tnaking a lqag drive. It is like riding in a parlor
car Instead of a day-coach.
We Want You
to cxaminc the Hudson. Bring an expert with
you. The expert wi_rtefl you that, while Hudson
features and Hudson refinement are not new in
the scr.se of never having been used before, they
are new in a car at the Hudson price. He will
tell you that the value is all there before your eyes
in good, sound automobile design, material and
finish. When you buy a Hudson you get the
most for your money?there is no doubt-about rt>
The Hudson goes anywhere and does everything
that a high class automobile should do.
We are sincere when we say that the Hudson excels any rar at anywhere near the
Hudson price. This is a sweeping statement, but it is not merely an adv<_rtising
claim?it is a proven fact, absohitely true. We know that the Hudson Touring
Car at $1150 and the Roadster at $1000 possess greater reliability and efficiency
than many cars selling at $500 to $700 more than Hudson prices. If you wish we
will show you just wherein this additional value lies. Why njft see the Hudson?
Ride in it. Put it to any test you can suggest. We have a tar at your disposal
