Hudson 6 Commodore
This was another old photo that came in batch of pics from the States a while back. Someone on the site forum identified the car for me, as a c1949 Hudson Commodore - either a '6', or 'Super 6' he wasn't quite sure which. The Commodore 6 had an inline six
cylinder engine, of just under 4.3 litres in capacity. Quoted power was 121 bhp, powering the rear wheels via a
3 speed auto box. Perhaps the Hudson's most distinctive feature to passers-by, was its low look to the bodywork. This came
about thanks to the floorpan being mounted low down in the chassis frame, rather than above it. Occupants therefore stepped down
into the Hudson, rather than up as with most cars of the era.
