Brochure for the New Hudson autocycle. 1956 was the year the New Hudson Autocycle was revamped and given cleaner, more enclosed bodywork. Production continued until 1958 when Villiers dropped the 2F engine that was fitted to the New Hudson from their range. New Hudson was actually part of the bicycle division of BSA. It could also be that BSA discontinued the Autocycle and did not seek a replacement motor for the Villiers as during the end of it's production run the Autocycle was competing with BSA's own branded Dandy.
