HUDSON GREAT EIGHT/GREATER EIGHT

Roadster, touring, 7-passenger touring, coupé, brougham, 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan, convertible sedan, 7-passenger sedan.

First of the 'splasher' five-bearing eights with wet-plate clutch, vacuum feed and Bendix brakes, looking like an overgrown Essex, and never much of a seller here. Recognise a '31 by its bigger, 87bhp engine, radiator stoneguard and stiffer frame. Wood or wire wheels, 119ins or 126ins wheelbase options, and free wheeling available from July '31.
