1911 Hudson Model 33

The 1912 Hudson 'Mile-a-Minute' Roadster was faster than its '60-mph' name implied. It was a very advanced vehicle though minimalist in design. It had a 100-mph Warner Auto-meter, Demountable rims with an extra rim in the back, lamps, Prest-O-Lite tank, and luggage carriers. It had a thirty-gallon fuel tank and an additional tank for 10 gallons of oil. It was very well balanced and could travel the roads and raceways in better form than most other vehicles.

It was a dual-purpose vehicle with both road and racing in mind. It had quick-fill oil and gas filler caps. For intense racing situations, the fenders could be removed to reduce weight even further.

The Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan began producing vehicles in 1910 and would remain in production until 1954. Their first vehicles had a 20-horsepower, four-cylinder engine that promised speeds of 50 MPH. During their first year, around 4,000 examples were sold. The four-cylinder engine would remain in the Hudson line-up until 1916 when it was dropped in favor of a one-model policy. Their sole offering had a 4730cc Super-Six engine.

The company was started by Roy D. Chapin with financial backing by J.L. Hudson, head of Detroit's famous department store that bore the same name.
