The 1950 Hudson Commodore's unit body-chassis ranked as one of the cleverest early postwar designs. Low and sleek, it hugged the ground and handled well, thanks to its radically low center of gravity. The design, which had begun as early as 1940, was directed by the brilliant Frank Spring, a fixture at Hudson and one of the most talented stylists of the 1940s.
The "Step-down" body evolved from wartime doodling -- sleek, aerodynamic forms modeled in quarter- and eighth-scale clay and plaster. As Bob Andrews, a member of Spring's team, commented later, "It was the Ivory Soap school of design: you'd take a bar of Ivory and start carving the fenders, hood and deck, and presto!"
Like all Hudsons since 1932, the unit body-chassis of the 1950 Hudson Commodore was extremely strong, rigid, and rattle-free. The nickname "Step-down" referred to the dropped floorpan, which was completely surrounded by frame girders. It was probably the safest automotive package of the time, perhaps any time.
Also, in its own way, the 1950 Hudson Commodore radiated its own understated beauty. The "fuselage" was clean, with a neat mid-height creaseline to eliminate any tendency toward slab sides. The grille sat low and wide; the taillights were functional rather than decorative. The dashboard was flat and positioned upright in front of the driver. It contained a big clock and speedometer (with 10-mph increments marked off in single digit numbers), warning lights for amperes and oil pressure, and gauges for fuel and water temperature.
