1926 Hudson Super 6 Brougham, model O, 127" wheelbase.

Another example of the rarities lurking in New Zealand is this complete & original car, with lightweight alloy & wooden frame body from Biddle & Smart.

Hudson was named after the investor and department store magnate Joseph Hudson. In 1916 the Super Six was introduced & set all kinds of records. This was the model on which Hudsons future and fortunes would rely until the greater eight in 1930.

For 1926, the Super 6 relied on a cast-iron cylinder block with a four-main-bearing crankshaft. The L-head, inline six displaced 289cid, or 4.7 litres, and produced 76 horsepower at 2,450 rpm. With rear mechanical contracting drum brakes originally, we are adding front brakes from a later Super Six during the restoration to improve the possibility of stopping!
