When Hudson introduced the Stepdown Design it was a breakthrough for American automobiles. The unibody construction provided a sleek outline, greater body rigidity, increased interior space and a lower center of mass than other cars of the era. These cars were known as stepdowns because the floor of the cabin was welded to the bottom side of frame rails so to enter the car one stepped over the frame and down into the car.

This restored example of the stepdown design features brilliant finishes, all new window glass, an interior with near original type fabrics and reliable mechanicals. The numbers matching straight eight flathead engine has had a recent valve job and a rebuilt clutch. The three-speed transmission has an overdrive and Drive Master, an optional feature that provides automatic clutch operation and shifting. The operating Drive Master makes this car near unique.

All lights, gauges, the original push button AM radio, electric clock and other features of the car are operational. Modern upgrades include seatbelts, turn signals, Pertronix ignition, a PVC valve, an electric fuel pump, auxiliary input for the radio, sound proofing and headlamp relays. The car is fitted with whitewall radials, 215/60 R15 front and 225/75 R15 rear.
