History of Hudson
On July 3, 1909 the first Hudson model "20"
rolled off the assembly line in Detroit, Michigan. The car bore
the name of its new manufacturer's primary financial backer, J. L.
Hudson -- founder of the department store empire that still exists
to this day as Dayton-Hudson.
first Hudsons were, like most early makes, "assembled cars". Most
components (including engines) were purchased from outside
suppliers and simply "assembled" in the company's main factory. As
the years passed, however, Hudson made an ever-increasing
percentage of its own components "in-house": engines, bodies (when
even GM and Ford "subbed out" their bodies), transmissions and
differentials, to name but a few.
