"54" HUDSON 65 Miles an Hour To 58 Miles in 30 Seconds From Standing Start. Can 48 Experts Fail? They Have Done Their Best in the New HUDSONS By combining the experience of 48 engineers, failure is minimized in the New HUDSON cars. Experiment due to lack of have been left has been eliminated. The errors experience and lack of knowledge out of these cars. These 48 engineers received their training at 97 different factories. They came here from France, Italy, Germany, England, Belgium, and Austria. Combined they have had a hand in building 200,000 cars. They joined in building the New HUDSON and offer the "37" as their four-cylinder masterpiece and the "54" HUDSON, the Six, as the Master of all automobiles, regard less of cost, power, or make. Not a One Idea Car Individuals have done great work. Much ad vancement has been shown by different designers. But in all cars built under that method, there is a limit, for the designer, no matter how experi enced or clever he may be, is bound to fall short of perfection. By combining the experience of 48 men, some man in the group is always able to make good the shortcomings of his fellows. The New HUDSONS show, therefore, cars that have been built on a new idea. No similar group of men in size or experience ever before com bined in building an automobile, and by the same token no automobile ever built is so nearly de veloped along the right lines in all details as are the New HUDSONS. Eec trcSelf-C alI lct 7aI Examine Them Now Other cars may appeal to you because of some distinct ive feature. But the chances are that every distinctive feature is also on the New HUDSON, but is not distinct ive there because it is in combination with other details equally as important. You buy the HUDSON car not because of any one idea but because it has all of them. Can you afford to overlook such an automobile? There are two models. HUDSON cars are furnished in two chassis-the "37," a four cylinder, and the "54," a six. The equipment is identical in both cars, consisting of an electric cranking device, electric lighting generator aid ignition system, known as the Delco Patented. The equipment is complete in every respect, including top, rain-vision windshield, demountable rims, speedom eter, clock, tools, etc. The "37" has a I18-inch wheel base.
