To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:20,000 - 30,000 Sold new in PortugalRetains its original engineCharming yellow-over-black colour scheme Hudson Motor Car Companys companion Essex marque achieved third place in US sales in 1929, a landmark achievement. In 1932, the firm made history with a new lightweight model called Terraplane, marketed as land-flying. It became so successful that the Essex name was phased out by 1934, when all Hudsons adopted Terraplanes cruciform lightened chassis architecture. This convertible coupe was part of the Model K six-cylinder line. Accompanying documentation shows that this example was delivered new to Portugal and retains its original engine. Previously white, the yellow paint is nicely contrasted with black leather upholstery and matching canvas hood. The dickie seat and fold-out windscreen were standard. Terraplanes enjoyed a certain vogue through 1938, by which time the models had been fully integrated into the Hudson catalogue and the model name was discontinued. This is a very charming example of a well-loved automobile. Vendido novo em PortugalMantém motor originalCativante combinação de amarelo sobre pretoA Essex, marca associada da Hudson Motor Car Company, alcançou o terceiro lugar em vendas nos EUA, em 1929, um feito notável. Em 1932, o construtor fez história com um novo modelo mais ligeiro, chamado Terraplane, anunciado como uma experiência semelhante a voar em terra. Tornou-se tão bem sucedido que a designação Essex deixou de ser utilizada, quando todos os Hudson o chassis de estrutura mais ligeira, em cruz, do Terraplane.Este coupé descapotável fazia parte da gama de seis cilindros do Model K. A documentação inclusa mostra que este exemplar foi entregue novo em Portugal e mantém o motor original. Sendo anteriormente branco, o amarelo atual oferece um belo contraste com o interior forrado a pele preta e capota de lona a condizer. O banco da sogra, tipo dickey, e o pára-brisas dobrável faziam parte do equipamento de série.Os Terraplane estiveram muito na moda até 1938. Nesse ano, os modelos foram integrados no catálogo da Hudson e a famosa designação foi descontinuada. Este é um exemplar muito atraente de um automóvel muito apreciado.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
