THREE NEW HUDSONS FOR 1940
 
1-Most Amazing Lowest Priced Car Ever Built
It's priced at rock-bottom ... with more beauty, roominess and luxury than this price field has ever seen. It has power that laughs at hills end eats up distance, with a smoother more comfortable ride cushioned by the finest type of independent front wheel coil springing. It's the economy winner – delivered more miles per gallon than any other full-sized car ever did in any official test; the endurance winner-it triumphed in a torture test (20,000 mile, in 12 days) such as no other at any price ever survived. The new Hudson Six is THE CAR TO SEE with the "Other Three"!
 
2-America's lowest Priced Straight Eight
A wholly new Straight Eight – official 1940 performance and economy winner of its class! More than one horsepower for every inch of wheelbase! Only Hudson, first to smooth out engine vibration with the counter-balanced crankshaft, and first to apply the principle of high ratio of power to weight, could build this car! Add luxury, riding smoothness, safety and handling ease new to the highway ... and you'll find it hard to believe that this new Hudson is actually America's lowest priced Straight Eight! The new Super-Six is its twin in everything except motor and still lower price.
 
3-Luxury Sensation of the Year... New HUDSON Country Club Six and Eight Sedans
Here, for the first time in a popular priced car, are interiors of true custom luxury ... that you formerly associated only with cars made to order. Smart tailoring, rich fabrics, complete appointments. The Country Club Sedan is long of wheelbase, with wide, easy-entrance doors and many extra inches of body length. Wide, divan-type seats of new design, with cushions of Airfoam, are richly upholstered in two tones of a special weave of famous Hockanum Woolen. Here is the aristocratic kind of car you hoped, some day, to own. And you can easily own it now, for it costs no more than the ordinary "moderately priced" car!
 
The new Hudsons have proved themselves the 1940 economy, endurance and performance winners in official tests certified by the American Automobile Association Contest Board. Get the amazing results of these tests at any Hudson showroom.
