Footnotes

  • The American Hudson Motor Car Company took its name from Joseph L Hudson, who provided the finances that enabled a group of experienced ex-Olds Motor Works employees to embark on a new automobile-manufacturing venture in 1909. During 1915 Hudson sold a little under 12,900 cars - some 1,000-or-so less than Chevrolet, by way of comparison - yet in 1916 so fewer than 25,772 Hudsons found customers, an increase of 100%. The reason was the introduction in January that year of the 'Super Six', which had been launched on the back of a series of high-speed demonstration runs made on Long Island in December 1915, and would set a number of American speed records in 2016. The secret of the Hudson's success was its advanced, four-bearing, 4.7-litre engine, which featured eight counterweights, large valves, a relatively high compression ratio, and efficient porting. With 76bhp on tap, the Super Six possessed a level of performance demonstrably superior to that of many six-cylinder rivals costing far more. One of the truly outstanding American cars of its day, the Hudson Super Six remained in production until 1926.

    This Super Six was purchased in 1989 in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, Quebec by the current vendors, a prominent private collection in the Republic of Ireland. Described by the vendors as in very good/excellent condition, the car is offered with a letter from the previous owner, shipping documents, and the original Canadian Immatriculation Certificate.

    La société américaine Hudson Motor Car Company devait son nom à Joseph L. Hudson qui finança un groupe d'anciens employés expérimentés de l'usine Olds Motor qui avait décidé de se lancer dans la construction automobile en 1909. En 1915, Hudson vendit un peu moins de 12 900 voitures – à peu près un millier de moins que Chevrolet, à titre de comparaison – et en 1916 pas moins de 25 772 Hudson trouvèrent preneur, une croissance de 100%. La raison en était la présentation en janvier de cette année-là de la Super Six qui avait été lancée après une série de course de démonstration à haute vitesse à Long Island en décembre 1915 et qui allait établir un certain nombre de records de vitesse américains en 2016. Le secret du succès d'Hudson était son moteur moderne de 4,7 litres à quatre paliers dotés de huit contrepoids, de grandes soupapes, d'un taux de compression relativement élevé et d'une efficace admission. Avec ses 76 ch, la Super Six affichait un niveau de performance supérieur à celui de ses nombreuses rivales à moteur six cylindres bien plus chères. L'Hudson Super Six, une des voitures vraiment extraordinaires de son époque, resta en production jusqu'en 1926.

    Cette Super Six a été achetée en 1989 à Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, au Québec par le vendeur, une grande collection privée irlandaise. Décrite par le vendeur comme étant en très bon état général, la voiture est vendue avec une lettre du précédent propriétaire, ses documents d'expédition et son certificat d'immatriculation canadienne.
