1942 Hudson Six Sedan
The 1942 Hudson models bowed on September 1, 1941. Basically, updated 1941s, they featured a more delicate five-louver grille and reshaped fenders, the rears having much smaller wheel openings.
The new Hudsons had much more brightwork than their predecessors, with all series adding lower body trim and hash marks on each fender. Running boards were hidden under flared extension panels attached to the bottom of the doors and bodysides. The lower trim hid the resulting joint line.
Model offerings were nearly the same as those of 1941. The Traveler name was dropped; the entry-level cars simply were called "Six." There was no Commodore Eight wagon, and the top-of-the-line Commodores -- the Custom Eights -- were reduced to a three-passenger coupe, a club coupe, and an eight-passenger sedan. The latter was the lone passenger car offering on the 128-inch wheelbase. Commercial cars were severely curtailed. Model series numbers jumped from the teens to the twenties but maintained their relative positions.
Offered is a 1942 Hudson Six two-door Sedan with 47,883 miles on the odometer. The Hudson appears to be mostly original with Blue and Grey cloth interior and black exterior. Powered by a 4.3 liter 6-cylinder flathead engine producing 75hp, the Six comes with a 3-speed manual transmission. The suspension is independent at the front with leaf springs at the back.
The car starts and drives magnificently with no issues present. There is no apparent rust or repairs been done to the bodywork. The interior presents itself as original with just the perfect amount of patina. This beautiful and rare Hudson Six Sedan is from a large collection of cars in our local area.
