Sold for $35,200 at 2018 Worldwide Auctioneers : Hostetlers Hudson Auto Museum Auction.
The 1915 Hudson models were distinguished by careful refinements, the most visual was the honey-comb type radiators. Two body styles were available, the Model 6-40 and the Model 6-54. Powering the Six-40 was an inline six-cylinder engine displacing 288.5 cubic-inches and offering nearly 30 horsepower. The Model Six-54 was powered by a 421 cubic-inch engine developing 55 horsepower. The six-cylinder engine had become a staple of Hudson production, and while the 1913 Hudson was available with either a four- or six-cylinder powerplant, the 1914 Hudson was exclusively a six-cylinder model. Although the 1914 Hudson six-cylinder engine which replaced the four-cylinder units were larger, their price tag was actually less. Visual changes for 1914 included enclosed hinges and a reshaped radiator.

The 1915 Hudson Model 6-40 rested on a 123-inch platform while the Model Six-54 had a 135 inch wheelbase. Bother were available with an array of open and closed body styles - seven for the Model 6-40, and three for Model 6-54.

Additional changes to the Model 6-40 for the 1915 model year included a higher headlamp tie-bar, a new non-folding two-piece windshield with pivoting upper portion for the open cars, repositioned control pedals with the gas pedal now between the brake and clutch pedals, and a new electric horn. Along with visual changes, mechanical changes included a newly tapered frame resulting in a shorter turning radius, a new tubular driveshaft reducing driveline mass, and the uprated engine now featuring an improved manifold with more efficient pre-heating of the intake air.

This particular example is a Model Six-40 Phaeton. It joined the Hostetler Collection in November 2005. Prior to its most recent acquisition, it was owned by Alex McCommas of Tyler, Texas, for whom the car was restored for touring use.

This Model Six-40 is powered by a 288.5 cubic-inch engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission. There are two-wheel mechanical brakes in the rear and a wheelbase which measures 123 inches. It has period-style 'No Skid' tires riding on artillery-style wheels in body color with smart pinstripe accents. There is a Hudson moto-meter, dual side-mounted spares, rear jump seats, a folding top with proper fitted cover, a rear stop-warning light, and luggage trunk containing an auxiliary crank and miscellaneous tools, belts, and straps.
