Hudson Cabriolet

While 1929 will forever be remembered for the infamous stock market crash, the Hudson Motor Car Company ranked third in sales, and although much of that success was due to Essex, its “junior” line, many forget that Hudson was considered a premier marque – one of the last to be fitted with a six-cylinder engine – albeit one with a reputation for power and smoothness.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2011 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.

92 bhp, 288 cu. in. L-head inline six-cylinder engine, sliding gear three-speed transmission plus overdrive, solid front axle and semi-floating rear axle with four-wheel semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 122.5".
