1929 was the Hudson Motor Company's best year in its history, with sales exceeding 300,000 cars earning it third place in the industry behind Ford and Chevrolet.
Hudson replaced their F-head six-cylinder engine in 1930 with a smaller, but more potent straight-eight. The engine displaced 213.8 cubic-inches and had a 2.75-inch bore and a 4.5-inch stroke. The unit produced 80 horsepower. The Hudson Great Eight was produced through 1952. Two years later, Hudson and Nash Motors merged to form the American Motors Corporation, which was acquired by Chrysler in 1987.
The 1930 Hudson Model T rested on a 119-inch wheelbase and were available in seven different bodystyles, including the new Sun sedan that allowed for open-air motoring in a two-door, five-passenger configuration.By Daniel Vaughan | Nov 2010
