Description:
The death of a once-great car manufacturer...

Hudson, whose "step-down" Hornets of the early '50s were among some of the best looking and well-built cars of the era, became dated, sales went down, and the company was sold off to Nash in 1955. The '55-'57 Hudsons were nicknamed "Hash", due to being merely rebadged Nash sedans, and were pretty horrible looking. Damn shame.

They're actually better looking than the Nash sedans of the same time period, IMO.

#3, That's not saying much, though.

Since I posted this thread, I've learned that the downfall of Hudson is actually due in no small part to the Hudson Jet... Hudson thought the compact-car market was prime to be explored, so they chose to invest their resources into what ultimately became the Jet, rather than updating their large cars... unfortunately, they were 5 years too early...

...I say five-years too early, because Studebaker was nearly bankrupt by 1959, but their new compact, the Lark, was a massive hit and kept the company going for another number of years.
