As America approached its full-scale entry into what would become World War II in 1940-41, Hudson consolidated its well-deserved reputation for stylistic and engineering excellence. Hudson also affirmed its continuing commitment to equipping its automobiles with a rapidly growing array of standard and optional features and accessories that appealed to the marque’s upwardly mobile clientele. With the exception of their front fenders, Hudson bodies and interiors were completely restyled for 1941, with significant contributions to the new look made by Betty Thatcher Oros, America's first female automotive designer.
Interior space was considerably improved for 1941, with all Hudson chassis now featuring three-inch longer wheelbases with overall vehicle length increased, yielding greater legroom and passenger comfort. Simultaneously, vehicle height was lowered by two inches with a sleekly flattened roofline. A refined frontal treatment, attractive grille design and revised bright trim elements were other noticeable visual updates from Hudson for 1941. Interior updates included upholstery available in both new materials and new shades of gray, tan or green, while a handsomely wood grained instrument panel, sporting a horizontal-bar speedometer, provided additional elegance.
Hudson’s model range for 1941 continued to be wide and versatile, including the new top-of-the-line Commodore in both six- and eight-cylinder power, which replaced the prior year’s Country Club and Hudson Deluxe lines at one stroke. For its part, the upmarket Commodore Eight line was positioned just below the top-of-the-line Commodore Custom Eight and offered six individual models – all on a generous 121-inch wheelbase chassis.
This 1941 Hudson Commodore Eight Touring Sedan is a pleasingly honest example which continues to benefit from a well-detailed older restoration and sports a period correct Maroon paint finish, which does show its age but remains highly attractive. The grey broadcloth interior is sound overall notwithstanding some repairable flaws and features include a rear folding armrest, pushbutton AM radio, and an early application of turn-signal indicators – a desirable and safety-enhancing factory option introduced by Hudson in 1940. The venerable Hudson L-head 254. 5 cubic-inch inline eight-cylinder engine carries a robust 128 brake-horsepower rating in concert with a three-speed manual transmission. Both the engine and surrounding engine compartment are tidy and nicely detailed with correct finishes and proper components in place. Hudsons have long been appreciated by marque enthusiasts for their excellent performance and road manners, particularly the eight-cylinder Commodores of the immediate pre-war years. As offered, this high-end 1941 Hudson Commodore Eight Touring Sedan stands ready for touring enjoyment with ample performance, luxurious appointments, interesting design heritage, and plenty of space to share the experience with friends and family.
