  By 1936, the Hudson Motor Car Company had established itself as one of Detroit’s leading innovators. Hudson automobiles were the first to feature dual brakes, self-starters, a dash-mounted oil pressure gauge and generator warning lights, as well as the first balanced crankshaft.

  The new custom Hudson Eight of ’36 kept that trailblazing tradition alive with the introduction of radial safety control and rhythmic ride suspension. Innovative advances, a more powerful engine, and body styling that was more than easy on the eye, combined to make this Hudson one of the most desirable cars to emerge from the 1930’s.

  Now, in commemoration of its 25th Anniversary, Franklin Mint Precision Models presents the definitive die-cast re-creation of the automotive icon considered by many the most beautiful car in its era – and, arguably, the most beautiful of all time. And by acting now, you can be among the select few to own this landmark achievement in model-making history.

  Hand-painted a dramatic silver and black, the 1936 Hudson Eight is being issued in a special
Limited Edition of just 2,500 Worldwide. It will be sent to you with a commemorative medal mounted to the undercarriage.

  This sensational precision re-creation of the ’36 Hudson is hand-assembled from more than 150 separate components to capture each authentic detail in the lifelike accuracy for which Franklin Mint Precision Models is world famous. Demand is expected to be high, so to ensure acquiring this rare Limited Edition, it is important that you act soon!
