One of the last Hudsons

This 1956 Hudson was discovered in New Mexico in an abandoned state. Hudson was near the end of its life in 1956, with the last Hudson rolling off the assembly line on June 25, 1957. Total Hudson sales dropped to 22,588 in 1956 and bottomed out in the shortened 1957 model year to 4,180 units. The 1956 model could be purchased with a V8 engine. (Photo by Jim Prueter)
