Hudson cars of this period boasted all-steel construction, roomier interiors, and “Duo-Automatic” brakes -- a hydraulic system with a mechanical backup. See pictures of the 1935-1938 Hudson Custom Eights and Deluxe Eights below.
The 1936 DeLuxe and Custom Eights were big, smooth, solid cars in the Hudson tradition.
Power for the DeLuxe Eight was provided by a 113-horsepower, 254.5-cid L-head straight eight, which provided dignified performance in the 3,000-pound convertibles.
The convertible versions of the Custom Eight sold for $950 and rode the 120-inch standard wheelbase used for all models except long sedans.
A 1936 convertible Hudson DeLuxe Eight cost $875.
