Following the return to civilian automobile production in America during late 1945, the Hudson Motor Car Company weathered the supply shortages and labor strife of the immediate postwar era, yet still managed to return to production levels not seen since the 1930s. To meet the pent-up demand for new cars in America, Hudson styling was a subtly updated rendering of the 1942 models, and model lines were streamlined for 1946 along the Super 6, Commodore 6, Super 8, and Commodore 8 – all now sharing the generous 121-inch wheelbase chassis, plus the Commercial 6 ¾-Ton pickup. Retaining proven L-head inline six- and eight-cylinder engines displacing 212 cubic-inches and 254 cubic-inches respectively, transmission options included Drive Master, Vacumotive Drive, and overdrive. Except for a considerable expansion in options, plus minor detail updates to exteriors and interior appointments, Hudson design would remain mostly unchanged for 1947, with big news to come with the revolutionary “Step Down” 1948 model line, which would serve Hudson buyers until the end of the 1954 production run. Interestingly, Hudson marketing took a quantum leap forward during 1947 when a group of New York City Hudson dealers organized one of the first television advertising campaigns. Profits were earned for both 1946 and 1947, with calendar-year total shipments of 93,870 and 103,310 units respectively, good for 11th place in American sales rankings for 1947.

According to its VIN, this 1947 Hudson Super Six Brougham was manufactured in September 1947, making it quite historic as one of the last Hudsons built with traditional body-on-frame construction before the highly-anticipated introduction of the new “Step Down” models that would soon debut in November 1947. This vehicle is an early member of the Hostetler Collection, having been purchased from Mike Whited in 1987. A repaint was applied under Mr. Whited, but the upholstery was not yet restored. After Eldon Hostetler purchased the vehicle, he elected to leave the original upholstery “as-is” since he felt it already was quite nice overall. Highly original, it is equipped with a clock, dual spotlights, a steel sun visor, and white sidewall tires. Handsomely presented, it is an attractive example of a Hudson model of the immediate postwar era.
