In 1948, Hudson introduced a new direction for the company with their Step-down cars. The drivers and passengers literally stepped down to enter a Hudson, but of its partially unitary design which put the floor pan on the bottom of the frame rather than the top. Under the bonnet was an all-new six-cylinder engine. Buyers could purchase the optional legacy straight eight, which had come into existence in the 1930s.

This particular Hudson Commodore has been given a recent restoration, in which the semi-unitary body was completely sandblasted and repainted in Champagne Silver Pearl with a black canvas top. Inside is a new brown leather upholstery. The car has a power top, power windows, directional signals, a sun visor, a radio, a heater, and Borg-Warner overdrive. It is powered by an L-head inline eight-cylinder, 254.5 cubic-inch engine offering 128 horsepower.

The Commodore Eight Convertible Brougham was the most expensive 1950 Hudson, with a list price of $2,890, which put it in Series 61 Cadillac territory. It is believed that just 425 examples were produced.
