I do like the Olds better, but to answer your question - No. The Hudson had a bullet proof 6 that
lended well to modification. In 1951 the factory began issuing factory made racing parts for that motor and the HP increased to about 210. The Hudsons dominated race tracks in the early 50s, not only because of the powerful, high torque engine, but because of the low center of gravity.
