1910 Hudson Model 20 news, pictures, specifications, and information
In 1909, J.L Hudson and Roy D. Chapin formed the Hudson Motor Car Company. Their idea was to build a low-priced car for under $1000. The resulting new Hudson 'Twenty' was one of the first low-priced cars on the American market and very successful with more than 4,000 sold the first year. Their peak was in 1929, with 300,962 cars produced by Hudson and its lower-priced companion car, Essex, allowing Hudson to finish third in sales among American nameplates, just behind Ford and Chevrolet.

The 1910 Model 20 was powered by a four-cylinder, 22.5 horsepower engine coupled to a three-speed, sliding gear transmission and had a chassis with a 100-inch wheelbase. They weighed about 1,8000 pounds. The Model 20 was available in three body styles including two different roadsters and a touring car. Pricing ranged from $900 to $1,200 and nearly 7,000 vehicles were produced and sold during 1910, which made the Hudson automobile nearly as popular as the Ford Model T.

This 1910 Hudson Model 20 Roadster has had only three owners from new. Dr. Atwell of Canton, Ohio was the original owner and used the runabout to make house calls to deliver babies. The doctor owned the car until 1940 when the second owner purchased it for only $42.50. The vehicle still retains some of its original leather upholstery and has been refinished in its original red color.

Hudson Motor Car Co., founded in 1909, was created by Roy Chapin and financed by J.L. Hudson, head of Hudson Department Stores of Detroit. Hudson was one of America's most famous makes and endured until 1957.
