Hudson Twin-H Engine by DetroitDemigod Hudson Twin-H Engine by DetroitDemigod
1953 Hudson Hornet Twin-H Engine

To duel with competitors who were introducing new high-compression OHV V-8 engines, Hudson for 1951 "bored and stroked" its veteran 262-cid (4.3L) flathead six up to 308 cubic inches and increased the compression ratio from 6.7:1 to 7.2:1, thus increasing horsepower from 123 to 145.

A new model, the Hornet, was marketed for performance enthusiasts, and Hudson began to monopolize stock car racing victories. For 1952, "Twin-H" dual carburetors were added to boost output from 160 hp. The 1953 culmination was the "7-X" package for "serve usage" (racing), reputed to put out 200 hp.

Not bad for a inline six cylinder at the time :-)

They paved the way for AMC in the future and Mopar later on.
