Then sculptured by artists to utter perfection. Then built by master craftsmen. Then finished and trimmed and upholstered as cars never were before. Hudsons are not. merely handsome, but right. These styles will endure. That is one reason why . Hudsons now outsell any other ; front-rank car 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.
