The Two New HUDSON Cars
That 48 Engineers Built
The picked engineers from 97 European and American automobile factories combined in building
the New HUDSON cars. -
There are 43 experts in the organization, at the head of which is Howard E. Coffin, America's
leading automobile engineer and builder of six famous cars. '
Combined, these men had a hand in building more than 200,000 motor cars.
No car can be greater than its engineers planned It to be. Ve believe mechanical perfection is
more quickly and thoroughly accomplished through combining the experience and skill of many
men than 16 ever possible if dependence is placed entirely upon one man.
The Six
The "54" HUDSON supplies every demand mc.de of
any automobile, in speed, get-away, fcafety, power, lux
urious equipment, distinctive appearance and comfort.
It is not merely a "Six" made so by the addition of
two cylinders to a good four-cylinder car. At is capable
of a speed of 65 miles an hour with full equipment and
will jump to a speed of 5S miles an hour in 30 seconds
from a standing start. . . '
Its equipment is complete in every detail, which
includes an electric self-cranking, electric lighting
dynamo type and ignition system, known as the Del
co, patented. Illuminated dash and extension lamp,
mohair top, curtain, rain vision windshield, speedo
meter, clock, demountable rims, oGxiJ-o-inch tires, 127
inch wheel base, etc.
The seat cushions are 12 inches deep. Turkish type.
The finest materials are used throughout. No detail of
finish or equipment is skimped or overlooked.

The Four
No man need be told that Howard E. Coffin leads all .
in building four-cylinder cars. No designer has built
as many succssful automobiles.
In building the HUDSON "37" all his skill and ex
perience contributed to its perfection. But in addition
there was also" or ked into the car the skill and exper
ience of his 47 expert associates.
Thus was produced a car such as no one man is cap
able of building. It is truly a composite masterpiece.
The "37" combines all that these experts know in the
art of automobile building. Its detail of comfort, beau
ty, distinctiveness and equipment is precisely the same
as that furnished on the "Six."
The car has sufficient power for every requirement.
It is quiet and free from the degree of vibration common
to most automobiles.
It is a simple, accessible, durable car the best our
48 engineers know how to build ; therefore we unhesitat
ingly recommend it as the Master of any four-cylinder
car, regardless of cost, power or make.
