Style Permanency Enhances Hudson's Famed Endurance Lasting Design is the Natural Complement to the Durability of the Super-Six Motor However mechanically good, a vast satisfaction is lost to the owner if design changes in succeeding models mark his car out of date. Thus style permanency must be a major factor in a car that serves for years. Its value is exampled by the earliest Super-Sixes, built nearly five years ago. In all essentials they are modern cars today. They are modern in appearance. They have lost none of their operating smoothness, flexibility, or power. Their performance is characteristic of all Hud sons. Few would see in their looks or performance anything but a car of recent production. Think Ahead When You Buy a Car Time will bring you, too, the keenest appreciation of Hudson's mechanical endurance and style stability. Undoubtedly, thousands of Hudson owners chose it primarily for its beauty of design, its luxury, and distinction of appearance. But let nothing blind the real issue. It is performance; and endurance is foremost. Speed and power have their place. But they are secondary. Hud son has no cause to underrate them. For it holds the stock-car speed and power records. And the Super-Six motor has beaten the world's fastest racing cars, not once, but many times. The records prove it is open cham pion. It draws no distinction of type, size, cylinders, or price. It has won against the field. Why the Super-Six Principle Gives the Mastery Hudson dominance lies in the Super Six motor, which controls vibration. Perfection would mean a vibrationless motor, free of friction. No machinery is that. But the Super-Six motor comes within Io% of it-closer to the ideal than any other type. Nearer approach seems impossible. In the exclusive Super-Six motor power is increased 72% and motor effi ciency 8o%. Naturally such a car is in demand. Since it was brought out, nearly five years ago, it has been the largest selling fine car in the world. This year, as in all years previous, many who want Hudsons will have to wait for delivery.
