1930 Hupmobile Victoria
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.”
