The Hupp Motor Company was one of the many
independents during the early years of the automobile. Hupp built fine
cars beginning in 1909, and the company was highly successful during
its early years. But later, strong competition came along, particularly
from Buick, Olds, and Chrysler..competition that, coupled with the effects
of the Depression of the 1930's was just too great. Like other independents,
the Hupp Motor Company was forced to cease production. The last Hupmobile
was built in 1939.
Features of this Hupmobile Model C Victoria
include: 100 HP straight 8 engine, balanced crankshaft and flywheel,
"steeldraulic brakes," ventilated windshield, and "custom
Coachwork by Murray Body Company." The Victoria was sometimes referred
to as a "Doctor's Car."
