THE GREATER HUDSON EIGHT FOR 1931
 
HUDSON presents for 1931 a second and even greater Eight – a car with all the pleasing characteristics of the first Hudson Eight – but with these traits further improved and refined. This new and greater Hudson Eight is available in two chassis lengths (119 and 126 inches) and in many body types. This wide choice in appearance, in capacity and in color harmonies immediately gives individuality to the selection of any Hudson model.
 
Stream-Lined Bodies
 
Hudson body lines are again thoroughly modern. Hung low over the wheels on a double drop frame with tapering mouldings continuous around the body and over the hood these cars are beautiful in a new arid pleasing way. Fenders nosed well down at front and rear, are deep flanged to cover the tires and make one continuous curving line with the running boards. A bronze chrome-plated. Radiator grille is incorporated as part of the radiator shell. The stream-lining of the body design is carried out in such pleasing details as lamp brackets, door handles, sunshades and radiator ornaments. Adjustable hood openings are a custom touch. Maximum visibility to the rear is provided by a large rectangular window. These are indeed the smartest cars ever to carry the Hudson Triangle.
