Offers these Important Qualities
Special Notice to Fine Car Buyers
Hudson beauty is prized by
all owners. It even dictates
the choice of many. But to

What the Old

two and three years old which

might well be judged of recent
Hudson design has never
been guided by caprice. It has
never resorted to dubious ex
tremes. It has been too sure of
what are the essentials perman
encies of beauty, dignity and
true riding comfort.
The advance ideas you will
always find. But every idea
must earii its right to belong
No mere straining after some
thing new has ever won place
for a single feature of Hudson
Thus has developed a me
chanical quality that well-nigh
removes all consciousness of
motor and other mechanism.
A new Meaning
And with it has come an
economy in operation that as
serts itself not alone in low fuel
cost but more particularly in
reduced maintenance expense.
Owners experience no concern
about Hudson's readiness to
meet any requirement. Wheth
er it be the instant throttle re
sponse needed to shoot the car
out of a possible traffic jam,
or the ability to go on tour
across the continent, the Super
Six in countless ways has prov
ed its fitness. The Super-Six
motor is exclusive and every
one knows it excels.
Best of all, these qualities
are not of today's accomplish
