The Hudson Motorcar Company rose above the fray to establish itself as one of America’s greatest automobile companies. Its legendary Super Six was one of the most coveted autos of its era. It was an important defense supplier during World War II. Then came its radical Step-Down models. Company engineers also developed the powerful and highly-refined Twin-H Power engine, and from 1951-1954 Hudson automobiles completely dominated NASCAR. Hudson is remembered as one of the truly great classics of America’s automotive heritage.
