The Hudson Greater Eight was a premium line of automobiles produced by the Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan during 1931 and 1932.
The Greater Eight was the successor to the Hudson Great Eight and its name was intended to imply that the new model was "Greater" than its predecessor.
Hudson offered the Greater Eight as a sedan, coupe, or roadster, and fitted the new cars with an inline eight engine.
Production of the Hudson Greater Eight lasted until 1932 and there would not be many left in existence today.
