A WikiMoment

The Essex was a brand of automobile produced by the Essex Motors Company from 1918 -1922 and Hudson Motor Company of Detroit, Michigan between 1922 and 1932. During its production run, the Essex was considered a small car and affordably priced. The Essex is generally credited with starting the trends away from open Touring cars toward enclosed passenger compartments as the rule, not the exception.

Originally, the Essex was to be a product of the "Essex Motor Company" which actually was a wholly owned entity of Hudson's. Essex Motors went to so far as to lease the Studebaker auto factory in Detroit for production of the car. By 1922 the Essex Motor Company was dissolved and the Essex officially became what it was all along, a product of Hudson.

Essex cars were designed to be moderately priced cars which would be affordable to the average family. Essex cars proved durable and their capabilities checked upon and confirmed by AAA and the United States Postal Service.
