This is a rather scarce factory issued advertising postcard from the Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit. It was published in 1932 for their event with Amelia Earhart, where she actually christened the first Essex Terraplane car to come off the production line. All the Hudson dealers were in attendance, the public was there, and there was a grand parade through Detroit for it as well. It was quite an affair that day on July 21st, 1932. This postcard was mailed from Detroit on July 22nd, 1932, so this person was most likely in attendance that day, as this postcard was issued by Hudson. It is in good condition with minor wear and light corner bumps. During its maiden year, the car was called the Essex Terraplane, but was later shortened just to Terraplane. Please look at all the photos, as there is quite a bit of activity captured on this card - a wonderful example of automobile advertising from a bygone era!
