Hudson was another automotive brand that rose to prominence during the rise of personal transportation only to be defunct by the 1960s. Hudson’s most well-known model was the Hornet, which lived on as an AMC car. Hudson emphasized price and quality like Hyundai and Kia do now (via Hot Cars).
The last Hudson was built on June 25, 1957. From there, some of their models like the Rambler and the Hornet moved on to other automotive brands. Hudson was a company with a lot of potential but its executives lacked vision. Nowadays Hudson could stand out from the crowd but it never made it to the new millennium.
