Hudson Motor Making Unique Automobile
The Independent (St. Petersburg, Florida)
September 23, 1947
The Hudson Motor Car company has started production of an automobile that is said to be radically different from cars now on the market. According to A. E. Barit, president and general manager, the new Hudson has a lower center of gravity than any other American automobile and is only five feet from the ground to the top.
Upon entering the occupant will step down into and not up. The company says that with its lowness, it offers a better usability of interior space than has been achieved before. Passengers will be cradled between the axles, the company states, and the seat is ahead of the rear axle. The company announcement stated the car has a completely new super-six engine "with more horsepower than any other six on the market, and an improved super-eight engine."
While not predicting the exact date Hudson will begin rolling out the new car, Barit estimated the company will be in final assembly operations in a few weeks.
