Few changes were made to the 1949 Hudson models, at least from what the customer could see from the outside or under the hood.
The Commodore line had similar upgrades with a few exceptions. The top line Hudson series added a brown color rubber front floor mat with simulated carpet insert, pocket-type storage on the back of convertible front seats, metal hand rails on the back of all front seats, and two instrument panel storage compartments.
