Sold for $60,500 at 2014 RM Auctions - Hershey.
The Hudson 'step-down' involved mounting the floor of the car to the underneath of the chassis, allowing for a very low center of gravity and plenty of interior space. The eight-cylinder engine was still present in the lineup, but the company offered an all-new six-cylinder unit. The new cars appeared on December 7th of 1947. The roof was low, but the interior still offered plenty of room. Sales jumped nearly 50 percent over 1947, and Hudson rose from 13th to 11th place in the market.

This Hudson Pacemaker Custom Convertible Brougham is fitted with an L-head, 308 cubic-inch, six-cylinder engine with Twin H-Power dual carburetors and dual manifold induction system. The 160 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The car has recently been re-finished in the correct color of Cornish Cream with fresh chrome, a new dark red leather interior, and a new black Haartz cloth top. There is a power top, wide whitewall tires, and rear fender skirts, as well as a functional clock and radio.
