1940 Hudson Sedan

1940 Hudson Sedan

Seen October 2009, Huron County, MI; Driving to Pointe Aux Barques Light on Lake Huron, I saw this clean 1940 Hudson sedan on Main Street (M-25) in Caseville; car looks incredibly good & does not appear to have been restored to better-than-new condition - some rubber missing from running board, chip or scratch in paint on hood near Hudson emblem; Hudson bodies new for 1940 with independent front suspension, horizontal grille (becoming popular throughout US auto industry), headlights integrated into fenders (introduced on "senior" Hudsons for 1939, extended to all Hudsons for 1940), front-hinged safety hood that locked at dashboard (also on senior Hudsons for 1939, extended to all for 1940); however, rear doors still "suicide" type - hinged rear - & reamined so until dramatic new "step-down" design Hudson arrived for 1948
