Hudson, one of the smallest of America's automakers to survive the Depression, spent the war years in the defense effort along with its much larger counterparts. Also like them, it returned to civilian automobile production as soon as it could, freshening its 1942 models with trim changes to respond quickly to the pent up demand for cars. The '46 Hudson’s were solid, conventional automobiles that gave good value for their prices, $1,553 F.O.B. Detroit, about the same as an Oldsmobile, in the case of this Super Six Coupe. Power came from a 212 cubic inch 103 horsepower side valve inline six cylinder engine and this example is further fitted with the 3-speed manual transmission, aftermarket turn signals, wide whitewall tires on steel wheels with hubcaps and trim rings, rear fender skirts, front and rear bumper over riders, fog lights, radio, heater, and a remotely operated spotlight. Finished in maroon, it is upholstered in Hudson's grey "boucle waffle weave" fabric with blue-grey leatherette upper seatbacks and trim panels. It has been given a thorough restoration to very high cruising standards. The paint, chrome and interior are good, the engine compartment completely redone and nicely detailed and the trunk similarly redone as-new including a whitewall spare wheel and tire. The look, particularly with the rear wheel skirts, is very attractive. This is a car with class and eye appeal that easily holds its own with its contemporaries both in eye appeal and in performance.
