HUDSON EIGHT (1939)
Sedan, limousine, drophead coupé, sports saloon.
New, shorter, two-piece grille and recessed headlamps on these: 1936's 'dual-safe' brakes (an emergency mechanical linkage should the hydraulics fail) retained. Column shift standard, but Electric Hand now a rare option only. Dropheads by Carlton: the 136ins wheelbase limousine (another British exclusive) is merely a stretched standard sedan.
