1913 Hudson Model 54

The Hudson Motor Car Company returned to a two model lineup for 1913, offering the Model 37 and Model 54. The Model 37 was available as a roadster, torpedo, coupe, touring car, and limousine with prices that ranged from $1875 to $3,250. Its wheelbase measured 118 inches and rode on 34 x 4-inch tires. The inline four-cylinder engine displaced 280.6 cubic-inches and developed 37 horsepower at 1,500 RPM. The Model 54 had a 127-inch wheelbase and was powered by a 421 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine with 54 horsepower. Both engines were backed by a three-speed manual transmission with floor shift controls. Braking was handled by mechanical brakes on two wheels.

The Model 54 body styles included a roadster, 5- and 7-passenger touring car, 7-passenger limousine, coupe, and a torpedo that was later described as a phaeton. Both the Model 37 and Model were equipped with a Delco starting system instead of the prior Disco acetylene-gas unit.

Hudson boldly claimed that it was 'the world's largest producer of six-cylinder automobiles.'
