1928 Hudson Model O news, pictures, and information
The Hudson redesign for 1928 featured a high, more slender radiator, larger headlights and vertical radiator louvers, all providing the car with a more elegant appearance.
A 92 horsepower, 'Super Six' six-cylinder motor was mounted on the 127 wheelbase chassis. An industry first was Hudson's use of a steering wheel using hard rubber on a steel core. Its color (black) matched the car's instrument panel.
This Murphy bodied Hudson has many parts that went on Duesenbergs (interior door handles, window cranks, windshield wipers, and the dash has a special finish). All metal around the windows and other metal trim are nickel-plated, which is quite elegant. The colors used add to the Hudson's appearance. The running boards are of unusual design made of varnished wood and have nickel drop-through grooves at the front and back doors so dirt and snow can drop out along with nick-plated metal strips.
The hood is a most unusual one-piece covering the motor. This requires a small removable panel on each side to view the motor. The truck was restored, covered with new material, and has 200 nickel-plated round head nails which enhance the appearance of the car.
