1931 Hupmobile

This is the “Century Eight” light weight sedan, designed for performance and easy handling. Selling Price: $1,295. (quite a bargain in its day).

SPECIFICATIONS: 

  • 90 HP Straight 8
  • 240 Cubic Inch Engine
  • Five Main Bearings
  • Two Barrel Updraft Stromberg Carburetor
  • Manifold Heat Control “Free Wheeling.”
  • Steeldraulic Mechanical Brakes
  • Six 19″ Wire Wheels
  • 118″ Wheelbase
  • Ventilating Windshield

Stored in a barn for many years, this car was purchased at an Iowa farm auction in 1960. A four year off frame professional restoration followed with total disassembly of the engine, transmission and entire car. The car’s built-in quality and the care with which the restoration was performed more than thirty-five years ago is evident today. The car performs well. It is comfortable and dependable. It has been driven several thousand trouble-free miles on vintage car tours.

“Slim…Sleek…Swift. At the curb or on the road, only a Hupmobile can look so smart or perform so well.” (So said the advertising in 1931.)
