The Long-Life Record HUDSON SUPER-SIX Will Hold First Place Forever, We Believe One year of the Super-Six seems to mark it the permanent lead ing type. Many other sensations had their day and departed. But the Super-Six gains prestige every month. And it comes too close to a perfect motor to ever be far excelled. For your own sake, don't get a wrong conception of the Hudson Super-Six. It is a Six, but not like other Sixes. This basic invention, controlled by our patents, added 80 per cent to our six-type efficiency. It does, in a better, simpler way, what we attempted in our Eights and Twelves. For we built those types for testing, as did others, when the seeming trend was that way. This Problem Solved The Super-Six gets its wondrous power, speed, and endurance by minimizing friction. That's what every type attempted. That's why men once thought that V-types would supersede the Six. Vibration causes friction, and friction causes wear. And the type which brings vibration lowest will hold first place forever, just as now. The Super-Six is that type. Every block test proves it. And a hundred road records confirm it. It now holds every worth-while record of endurance and speed for a stock car. Another Possible Error Some men still tell Hudson dealers that our records show qualities not wanted. They cannot use such speed, such power. "And other cars are good enough hill climbers. " But you must presume we know that. We have not increased our motor size. We are using a small, light Six-exactly the size we used before this invention. And a size now very common. Phaeton, 7-passenger . . . HUDSON Cabriolet, 3-passenger . . . SUPER TouringSedan....... six TownCar.......... The Super-Six principle gets from that size all of this extra efficiency. It does it by saving friction. Would you have less speed, less power in a motor, because of more friction and wear? To Double Endurance The Super-Six was invented to double indurance. That it makes the car a record breaker is simply incidental. The records we value most are long distance records. Under sanction of the Contest Board of the American Automo bile Association, the Super-Six broke the 24-hour stock chassis record by 328 miles. And in the famous non-stock Pike's Peak Hill Climb, sanctioned by the Contest Board of the American Automobile As sociation, a Super-Six Special made the best time through endurance. A Super-Six Touring Car twice broke the Transcontinental record in one con tinuous 7 0 00-mile round trip. All Super Six speed records have been made be cause of endurance. It Offers You This It offers you a car which, by a hundred records, is the most capable car in the world. It offers you endurance, far beyond any previous attainment. It offers you pride of ownership-the feeling that you rule the road. The knowl edge that yours is the greatest car in per formance that's built. It offers you beauty and luxury which make the car look its supremacy. It offers you, in our latest models, a wonderful gasoline saver. Will you want a car which offers less when you buy a car to keep? . $1650 S1950 . 2175 . 2925 Town Car Landaulet. . . . .$3025 Limousine . . . . . . . ... 2925 Limousine Landaulet ..... 3025 (All Prices f. o . b.
