HUDSON ANNOUNCES “ELECTRIC HAND” GEAR-CHANGE INCREASED POWER OUTPUT ON ALL MODELS, WITH REDUCTION IN PRICES.

EASY gear changing is a problem which is still engaging the attention of engineers on both sides of the Atlantic, and the latest development from the ” other side” is the Electric Hand mechanism standardised on the latest Hudson cars. A tiny lever operating in a miniature gate alongside the steering is electrically coupled to valves, and these in turn control vacuum cylinders which

shift the ratios in an orthodox sliding’ pinion gear-box. The electric control can be cut out at will, and the gear-box manipulated in the ordinary way by means of a detachable centre gear-lever of the usual type. Both Hudson’s and the cheaper Terraplane cars have Axleflex independent front-wheel springing, improved in detail this year, anti-roll stabilisers, and more powerful brakes, while the power output of all the engines has been further improved. The basic prices are : 16.9 h.p. Terraplane Six Standard Saloon £299; 21.6 Terraplane Big Six Saloon de Luxe £335; 21.6 Hudson Big Six Saloon de Luxe £360, and 28.8 h.p. Hudson Eight saloon £399. The open sports car on the Terraplane Big Six costs £310 and that on the Eight 2385,
