NEW ESSEX SPEEDSTER IS ADDED TO 1929 LINE

The Ludington Daily News
May 26, 1929


1929 Essex the Challenger
The most recent addition to the 1929 line of the Hudson Motor Car company is this flashy, ultra-stylish, special "eighty" speedster mounted on an Essex the Challenger chassis.

The body, custom built by Biddle and Sharp, is low and suggestive of the fastest of race cars. It is equipped with a folding windshield and there is a surprisingly large rumble seat in the rear deck.

The car comes in a variety of colors, and all bright work is chromium plated.

On account of the extreme lightness of this type of body, and the low center of gravity found in this model, Hudson engineers have found it practicable to incorporate an overdrive, which makes it possible to combine safety with the tremendous speed which this car attains.

By means of special construction which makes it possible to lower the back of the seat to the floor, it is possible to convert the entire rear of the car into a very comfortable bed.
