HUDSON SUPER SIX
Proves Itself in Bennington
f FRIDAY, AUGUST llth, :i Super Six touring car, in every particular
a stork car. did all three things, dairying a representative of THE
BANNER as observer.
The climb was made easily without an attempt to rush the hill. The last curve
before starting the steep climb being taken at moderate speed. The car was
driven around all curves under control and reached the top of the climb in the
open road nearing the hotel, at 35 miles per hour.
The demonstration of driving at two miles per hour on high ear, proves the
flexibility of the motor, ease of control and the fact that, while the Super Six
excels all in powsr and speed, it is a gentle, quiet, easy running pleasure ear for
comfortable touring and ready for all hills no matter how steep, without the
need of a flying start.
The demonstration of speed proves that the accomplishment of hill climbing is
by reason of real power developed in the motor and not by excessive gear
reduction which saerilices the speed of the car anil means that in ordinary work
the motor is running faster than is desirable.
