A Picture Review of
The Hudson, Essex, and Terraplane



 

 

 
 
A number of years ago I saw a one page calendar that showed all the Ford 
pickup trucks from the first one to the present day. I thought , what a nice idea.
I thought that I might try something similar with some 
of the car pictures I have collected.
I have been collecting pictures of Studebakers, Packards Nash, Hudson
and Jeeps for some time now and I first wrote a web page on the Studebaker.
Then one on Jeeps  and Packard followed.
Now I thought I would try a web page on the Nash and Hudson.
I have since added a page on old Pickup Trucks , Hudson. Essex and Terrplanes of Australia , Volkswagen, Kaiser and Henry J and now I with the help of one of my visitors have written on on the Crosley
These pictures came for a number of sources including 
web pages of the manufacture, news groups and my own.
Since most of these pictures came from news groups there may 
be a chance that your car is shown here.

I would like to invite any one that has a favorite 
Nash or Hudson picture or a Web Page
that they would like added to this page to E mail me a copy.

I want to give a special to Magister Max who has posted many of these pictures

A Brief History of American Motors


American Motors was in the beginning stages back in 1878 when Thomas B. Jeffrey built and sold Rambler bicycles in Chicago. He was the first of the three key players of the companies that created American Motors in 1954.
The other two were Charles Nash and Joseph L. Hudson.

Charles Nash started Nash Motors in 1916 
He along with David Buick started building automobiles in 1903.
In 1912 he became president of General Motors. In 1916 he purchased Thomas B Jeffrey's company, in Kenosha and changed the name to the Nash Motors.The next year the first Nash was built.
During the First World War he became the largest producer of trucks in the USA. In 1919 the company bought half interest in the Seaman Body Corp. During the 1920's he continued to expand, buying LaFayett Motor Corp. and the Mitchell Motor car Company. By 1928 Nash Motors production exceeded 138,000 cars.
The years 1935 and 1936 brought new spirit to the automotive industry. Nash offered its "sealed-in" engine in 1935, an arrangement that had the intake manifold case into the block. In 1936 Nash acquired full ownership of the Seaman Body Corp.
In 1938, Nash introduced the first "conditioned air" heating and ventilating system.
In 1940, Nash again scooped its competitors with the "600" series, unit-bodied car which pioneered mass-produced unit construction. At the age of 72 he directed the merger of Nash and Kelvinator who's president George W Mason became president of the new company, Nash-Kelvinator and Nash became chairman of the board.
He served in this position until his death in 1948

Thomas B. Jeffrey built and sold Rambler bicycles in Chicago from 1878 to 1900. He was one of America's first men interested in automobiles in the late 19th century, and in 1897, he built himself a motorcar. In 1900 Jeffrey bought a plant in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he planned to manufacture automobiles on a large scale. This plant is where the Rambler started its live. Jeffrey died in 1910, and his son Charles took over. Jeffrey had brought out a four-wheel-drive "Quad" truck in 1911, and this proved very popular with foreign governments for military use During World War I.

The Hudson Motor Car Company, founded in 1909 and building its first cars in 1910, when Joseph L. Hudson and seven business associates began producing a motorcar called the Hudson. J.L. Hudson died in 1912 and Roy D. Chapin headed the firm. He stayed with Hudson until his death in 1936.
During the First World War, Hudson became the world's largest manufacturer of six-cylinder cars. Jeffrey (soon to be Nash), became the world's largest producer of trucks.
In 1917 Hudson organized the Essex Motor Car Company, which from 1919 until 1932 built light, spirited models.
In the early years of the depression Hudson developed the long-lived Hudson Super Six and straight-eight engines.

During the Second World War both Nash and Hudson were busy in the nation's defense effort. It wasn't until 1948 and 1949 that Hudson and Nash brought out new designs. Hudson's famous "step-down" unibody and big-bore Six made their appearance in 1948. Nash brought out its "Airflyte" models the next year.
By 1950 the name Rambler meant a new small car in 1950. It marked the dawn of our present compact era.
The Nash-Healey, a forerunner of today's sports models, was brought out in 1951.
In the same year Hudson brought out the thrifty Pacemaker and peppy Hornet.
In 1952 the Hudson Jet made its appearance. The merger of Nash-Kelvinator Corporation and Hudson 
Motorcar Company created American Motors in 1954. 
One of AMC's first projects was the Nash Metropolitan the Austin-engined, British-built cars sold over 90,000
until 1962 with over 90,000 being sold.

The names Hudson and Nash finally disappeared in 1957. 
All models from that point on called Rambler.
The popular Rambler American, was introduced in 1958.

In the very early sixties, AMC started having its cars assembled in foreign plants - New Zealand and Australia, the Middle East, 
South America, Mexico, South Africa and Belgium all had AMC-assembling plants, and the Taiwanese Police were even outfitted with Ramblers.
American Motors lasted thirty years. Then, poor product planning such as the seven-year lack of a four-cylinder engine for the Gremlin and millions of dollars on development money wasted on poorly conceived models lineup ruined the future for AMC.  They never recovered. By 1987 a trail of red ink followed behind a stumbling and eviscerated company, and Chrysler Motors purchased it for a fire-sale price.

Hudson at War
Hudson, like all American and Canadian auto manfactures switched
production to war materials during WW II.
The above ad shows one of Hudson's contribution.
 
This picture was submitted by Harold Youmans of
Mission Viejo, CA
Harold is the owner of two 1947 Hudsons.
One is a Hudson Commodore and the other 
Hudson Commodore 8 Convertible
Both of these cars are shown below.

Harold had the following to say about the ad.

" I don't know whether you want to add this to your Hudson listings but it is a Hudson Motor Car Advertisement... and they did a lot to help end WWII. They built the fuselage sections for the Army's Marauder Bombers which had a reputation of bringing home the crew even if it was shot up by the Nazi's. Many other make planes in that shape never made it back home but the Marauder crews had a much better chance because that old plane sure held together throughout all the flack the Nazi's could throw at them. B-29's and other larger planes would break apart in the air when hit by heavy flack.
I could probably give you enough Hudson WWII info for you to fill another web page. 
Since I purchased this ad a year or two ago; I now have 4 different Hudson WWII ads; 2 about the Marauder and 2 about the Navy's Curtiss-Wright Helldivers showing they built the wings plus the high precision engine parts for those planes. They were flown off aircraft carriers, sinking Jap destroyer and carriers... All ads show great action pictures of the planes under attack. Hudson's track record of building parts that return the crews safely and unharmed was history making accomplishments! "

A story of a Hudson Survivor
1937 Hudson Straight 8


 
Andrew Szery, Queensland, Australia.
Here it is, my 1937 Hudson Straight 8
After 20 years, she is back on the road in probably better than her original condition, thanks to the genius of restoration advice and assistance, Mr Kevin Hickling.

In 1987, I was on a hunting trip near my hometown of Corryong in NE Victoria, when I discovered this vehicle among an eclectic mix of wrecks in varying degrees of decay and vandalism on an old farm. She looked forlorn but unscathed, except for missing rear window, all rubber seals, no floor, rust throughout, a completely concave roof  (which I was later told this was from carting hay bales), smashed in RH mudguard (came off second best in a collision with a Black Angus Bull), all the windows were down and the seats were growing things local to the area, and this all fertilized and cared for by a prodigious colony of rats. I approached the owner, a laconic Yugoslav named Bish who said "Take it, it's been there for 25 years, I don't want it...first the motor she bugger up, then the gear box it buggered. I fix the bloody gear box then the diff it buggers up, I fix the bloody diff then the bloody crank shaft it busts, no mate you can have the bugger for all I care." I borrowed a car trailer and took the old thing to my uncle's where it sat in the corner of the machinery shed for the next 14years.

1998 - enter Kevin Hickling, classic car show Burwood, Sydney, driving up the long avenue of trees to the central park at the wheel of a magnificent white 1937 Hudson 8 Deluxe. It was the first time I had ever seen a "live one". He was a very busy man, but somehow I convinced him to help me restore my car, and in 2001 I trailered it to Taree where he went over it from stem to stern, inside to outside and gave me an encyclopaedia's worth of advice. This translated into five years of hard work and a million phone calls. The result of patience and optimism and a love of Hudson's have put one more survivor on the road.

He had the following to say about this picture.

 "This photo dates from about 1930. My Father ran a hire car with a 1926 Nash taking people (usually American tourists) to the countryside around Sydney (Australia) and along the coast. He also transported money (with security guards) from bank to bank and payrol. This car served the same purpose 
as the Nash did."

He had the following to say about the car.
"A waiter friend I had not seen for twenty years overheard two women discussing the pile of junk that  woman one was considering divorcing her husband over!!!!!!!!!
 It seems he had collected car parts but never did anything with them . As an ESSEX owner of some 30 years I am known in this area.
 He interrupted their discussion and said that he knew a man who would take the parts, maybe.
 I receive an email  from him , and days later , I took possession of a totally original 1927 ESSEX SPEEDSTER with just 42000 miles.
  It is totally untouched ( ever! ) , and complete.
I have it in my garage.
 I do not know what I will do with it as I am too busy to restore another car."

Franklin Mint's 1936 Hudson Model 65 Convertible
This car was owned by Park Waldrop who is a past National VP
with the Hudson Essex Terraplane Club, he currently resides Rock Hill, SC
The car was sold the car in '03. It's changed hands twice, and currently in the collection of Italian Jewelry magnate
Nicola Bulgary.
This car is being concidered by Franklin Mint as an example for it's next scale model die cast car 
 I asked Park if indeed the  Franklin Mint and he had the following to say.
 "Franklin Mint did indeed make a model of the '36 convertible.  Unfortunately I couldn't persuade them to do it in the proper "Glacier Blue" color.  Turns out that when they got ready to produce the car, it was going to be the company's 25th anniversary year, so they did it in silver.  But since it was their silver anniversary model, they did several things they'd never done in a 1:24 model.  The seats are covered with real leather, the top is of fabric and goes up and down, and the windows roll up and down.  Pretty amazing for a car in this scale  Details are very well done.  They gave me a copy for steering them to the then owner of the car, so they could get all the photos they needed.  A couple of years later they did do a version in red."

Ken has the following to say about the truck.
"My dad and mother had a bakery on the Edmonton City limits for a number of years and this sedan delivery was purchsed in 1938 for approx. $800.00 used. It was used to deliver 600 to 1000  loaves of bread 6 days a week, in and around the City of Edmonton until we moved to my grand Father's farm in 1942, without a break down!! I remember it cost a dolloar a day for gas, wish I did not remember that part. Haha
We kept it for a couple of years until we sold it to an electrian as a service vehicle.  I have no idea of what happened to it  after that.

She had the following to say about the picture. 
"The photo was taken probably in Pennsylvania, around Pittsburgh. The kids are my mother, her brothers, and a neighbor. I assume the car was my grandparents' but don't know for sure. 
The photo was probably taken around Easter since it seems like the only photos I have of Mom as a child are her in dress-up clothes and I know Easter was the only time they got new clothes (depression years). In this photo it looks like they are in their Sunday best. My grandparents were Fred and Marie Schubert from McKees Rocks, PA. If the car is new, (and it may be, because I don't see a license plate in the holder) my mother would have been 10 years old in this picture."

Jeff had the following to say about that car.
"My father Frank Clark told me for years about his love affair with his Hudson. He would say "It was a really solid car, built with the driver in mind." I ran across this photograph in an old bag of pictures from my father's estate. The 70 year old photo made me feel like I was meeting an old friend for the first time.  It helped me better appreciate a great man and envision his life seven
years before I was born"

This picture was submitted by Declan Foley from Australia.
He had the following to say about the picture.
"Attached is a photo of a 1946 Hudson Terraplane. This was the first new car to be registered in County Sligo Ireland immediately after WW11. It was originally grey and was painted black as the man that purchased it, Jack Gallagher, was an Undertaker. My Dad Gerry Foley was employed by him around the same time. My Dad is pictured here standing between the ladies on the driver's side. It was sold in 1951
and alas, I cannot trace it's history after this."

The following  pictures submitted by Harold Youmans,
Mission Viejo, CA
1947 Hudson Commodore with a 212 cubic in. 6 cylinder engine; series 172
 
 
 
 
 
  This car is all original with only 57,000 actual miles.
It has been repainted once the original maroon color
The following are a few notes on the car from Harold
 
 This 1947 Hudson has 57,790 original miles on it. 
It has a 121" wheelbase and weighs 3,110 lbs. It was a one owner car when I purchased it around 9 years ago and the interior is still perfect!  It also has the original wood grain on the dash and drives very well for being 56 years old.
The hood ornament had a clear plastic insert in it (new for cars back then) and many have deteriorated, cracked and turned yellow due to weather and age; mine is like the day it was delivered. All chrome and stainless steel trim are also factory original.  This Hudson was always kept in a 
warm garage all its life and looks like it.
Many Hudson club members always wanted to see what an original interior looked like so I am including some pictures of the interior and the hood ornament.

I also have a 1949 Buick Roadmaster Sedanet (2-dr Fastback) with 63,000 original miles on it and the Hudson drives and handles much better than the Roadmaster.
It's a shame that Hudson went out of business as they had a much better car than other makes of that era.

 Harold Youmans's latest addition.
 This car is owed by Tom Purvis, Goodland, Kansas, USA
  The following are his comments on the car.

"The 1947 Hudson Commodore 8 Convertibles are 
a rare breed and I'm lucky to find one available.
I brought it home last month. It had never been restored; has 
72K actual on it and runs and drives great.
I will do a complete restoration on it later on after I have fun just driving it around. You already have a '47 Commodore 8 Conv. on your Hudson 
web site but I thought you might be interested in just seeing what I bought as I really like the old body 
style Hudson like this one. "
