The most remembered Hudson of the postwar years and one of the industry’s all-time greats. Virtually unbeatable in stock-car racing through 1954. Amazingly, this racing success was achieved with a six-cylinder engine—the last performance six before Pontiac’s late ‘60s overhead-cam engine. The Hornet’s legendary performance prowess gives it a big edge in collector appeal over the basically similar Pacemaker, Super Six and Wasp models of this period.
Hudson claimed that Twin H-Power was the first instance of dual-carb, dual-manifold induction on an American-made six: 'The secret of the amazing results which Twin H-Power provides is that it so accurately measures the gasoline, so evenly distributes it to each cylinder, and so thoroughly vaporizes the fuel with air that it provides what the engineers call far better "breathing" and combustion than has heretofore been obtainable.
The ruggedness of the Hudson engine is an important factor in the development of Twin H-Power. The oversize bearings, the extreme rigidity and hardness of the block, the weight and stiffness of the crankshaft--in fact the extra sturdiness built into all parts--make it possible to utilize the extra power. Unquestionably, the Fabulous Hudson Hornet was the most hairy-chested, impressively performing six the American industry has ever created.This dominant performance was directly traceable to Twin H-Power.
