Hudson Essex to go under the hammer at Halls


A 1925 Essex Super Six Sedan is expected to sell for around £10,000 when it is auctioned at Halls’ 11 July sale.

The Hudson-era Essex is credited as one of the cars that started the trend towards enclosed passenger compartments rather than open-top tourers.

Fitted with a 2374cc engine, the car was originally painted blue and black and is in full working order.

The Essex brand was established by Detroit’s Hudson Motor Company in 1917 to build a small number of companion cars for its Super Six range. Production was delayed by the war until December 1918 and by 1922 the Essex Motor Company had dissolved, with Hudson taking formally over production.

The Essex would eventually be replaced by the Terraplane in 1932, but not before 1.13 million of the cars had been produced.

I was always delighted with people who can preserve cars in the original condition. It's one of those few cases when a thing is getting more expensive year after year. Well done!
