The 1946-1947 Hudson Super Six was the best-selling Hudson in the early postwar years, and the most readily available today. Body choices were two- and four-door sedans, coupe, club coupe, and convertible. Soft-top production was about 2,500 units for the two years.

Styling was a little busier than in 1940-42, but was still based on the prewar bodyshell. Three transmissions were offered: overdrive, Drive-Master, and Vacumotive Drive. The last was a semi-automatic clutch, while Drive-Master combined semi-automatic clutch and shift functions. A Commodore Six sedan and club coupe were also available in these two model years.
