1941 Hudson Super Six
NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY
The name "Hudson" came from Joseph L. Hudson, a Detroit department store entrepreneur and founder of Hudson's department store who provided the necessary capital and gave permission for the company to be named after him. A total of eight Detroit businessmen formed the company on February 20, 1909, to produce an automobile which would sell for less than US$1,000 (equivalent to approximately $28,456 in 2019 funds).
For the 1940 model year, Hudson reintroduced the "Super Six" nameplate again. This time it sat on a six-cylinder version of the new Hudson Eight, sharing that car's 118 in wheelbase. This was five inches longer than that of the regular Hudson Six, which was available as either the Traveler or DeLuxe. Our consignment is a 1941 version of the Super Six and is in barn find condition. It presents with some invasive rust on the body, chipping paint, and blackened grille and bumpers.
In 1939 The Hudson Car Company hired a female designer to help with the 1941 version of the Super Six. This paid off as this car is noted as one of the most beautiful designs of any Hudson and due in part by this female's influence. A gracefully inverted V shaped grille is fronted by a black simply curved front bumper. Flanking on either side are lower rounded fenders complete with teardrop headlight bezels and round integrated onto the fenders headlights. On top is a high rounded bulbous design hood which races rearward to a split windshield. Some trimmings are attached and show some pitting and wear. Steel is painted in Maroon, which has plenty of areas of rust, chipping and scratching as well as peel off and orange peel finish, with even a few areas of body filler which is cracking. A running board connects the fenders on either side, and both are in a bit of rough shape with some rust and denting throughout. On back, another blackened bumper and round trunk lid with more chipping and cracking paint. Standard moon caps are centered within maroon steel wheels and wrapped in bias ply tires.
A swing of the doors and we see purple fuzzy broadcloth uppers and lowers with a center located vertical striped broadcloth in blue and purple striping. Some water damage is noted in these door panels. Inside, in front and in the rear, are dual red velour tuck and roll stitched benches. These are fairly clean but lack in some padding because one can feel the springs when you sit in them. A simple black painted metal dash, unrestored, fronts these seats and has an aftermarket stereo mounted within this dash. Red carpeting is on the floors and above is a red felted headliner which is a bit loose.
Under the hood is an inline 6-cylinder displacing 212 cubic inches and was once creating 102hp and it sits within an unrestored engine bay. On the back is a 3-speed manual transmission and for the rear axle 4.875 gears.
Underneath we can see previous applications of rustproofing and even a little surface rust. A steel X frame is good and solid and supports solid floor pans and rockers. Independent coil springs for the front suspension, and leaf springs for the rear and drum brakes are on all 4 corners.
A humdinger of a beautiful design, teardrop headlights, a tall rounded hood, and a curvaceous front grille are just a few of the features that make this car unique and collectible in the form of a 1941 Hudson Super Six. It will need some TLC.
