$3,875,000 Paid for Hudsons Last Month For this HUDSON Six-40, in September, motorists paid $3,875,000. That's the largest sale ever won by a class car, or by any car priced above $1200. It means five times as many HUDSONS as men bought a year ago. That shows what an avalanche of favor this new-type car has won. It gives to HUDSON the unquestioned top place among class cars. Last year's model, the first HUDSON Six-40, was 3000 cars oversold. In July we trebled our output to meet the demand for this new model. But in 30 days we had 4000 unfilled or ders. Not until we multiplied our output five-fold did we catch up with demands. All because Howard E. Cof fin, the great HUDSON de signer, has met men's ideals in this car. The whole HUDSON corps of 48 engineers has worked for four years on it. By better materials and clever designing they have saved about HUDSON MOTOR CAR CO., 1000 pounds in weight. By a new-type motor they have re duced operative cost about 30 per cent. By efficiency and by mammoth output they have brought your cost to the lowest price ever quoted on a quality car. They have devised new beau ties, new refinements, new com forts and conveniences. Part by part, they have perfected every detail. You never saw a car with so many attractions. It so far excels every rival car that thousands waited weeks to get it. Go see this prince of cars. Compare it with all the new year models out. If you want it for your car, get it now and enjoy Indian Summer driving. Five New-Style Bodies Seven-passenger Phaeton, $1550 f. o. b.
