  3. 1932 Hupmobile Portland OR craigslist

    This car is a 1932 Hupmobile Model B First series. It was the first year of the fuel pump being attached to the side of the engine. Also the first of using a down draft carburetor. These cars were built in the Cleveland plant. Production on the car in 1932 was 3, 581.

  5. Transmission and Differential oil

    Looking good on the side water jacket plate, I caution you not to use a flat plate of metal. The original one is embossed for better cooling.The 1929 Hupp model A which your car is and the one I just restored I had a heating problem. The radiator is honey combed. It can not be rodded out like the 1930 Model S that has straight tubes. I had the radiator boiled out and that helped quite a bit, but what really cooled it down was the pitch on the fan. Before I changed the fan, I set an electric fan on a chair and introduced more air to the radiator. The temperature gauge stayed at 170 Deg. The temperature outside was 90 to 95. I removed the fans off both cars. In matching them up, the 1931 Model S fan had a more aggressive pitch. After changing the fans , problem solved. I then sold the car as I knew it would be ok for the new owner. Hopes this helps and if you have a question, if I can not answer it, I know other Hupp technical advisors that can.

    How about a pic of you Hupp?
  7. Transmission and Differential oil

    One of the Hupmobile manuals I have says 70 weight gear oil in the summer , 50 wight in the winter. I have a number of old cars and w-80-90 works well. I would not use a synthetic as most of the early seals do not like it.
  8. 1927 Pierce Arrow Model 36 Limo

    Well worked on the string to see if I could free it up a bit. It feels a little better. We are taking 4 cars to the show this coming Sunday. I will be able to tell if the steering is any easier. If not I have to bit the bullet and pull out the whole steering column. As this car is a super restoration, that will not be and easy job. I may wait till before I head north so I can fabricate new bushings and check the cams in the steering box. I have tried taking the steering box apart in the car and could not find out what I need to know.

    There are 51 model 20's listed in the Hupp Club. Maybe one of the members that owns one will see this and respond, I am not at liberty to do so. I own 8 different Hupp models but no model 20.

    David, maybe this will help.
  13. 1935 Hupmobile J-521 value?

    If you lift the passenger side of the hood, look on the firewall about 8in. down and 12in. in. You will see a tag that starts with a J and 5 numbers . The serial # will tell what year the car is. I do not see the bumpers in the pic. If you do not have them, you will a tough time finding the correct ones. Plus side its a deluxe model, Factory installed radio, dual tail lights. This will make someone a fine car. I only pray that it stays original.
  14. 1935 Hupmobile J-521 value?

    Total production on thls Model was 2,488. 2264 on the 1934 and 224 on the 1935. . The 1935 being more desirable because of the low production. Raymond Loewy who designed this car was also a member of the Hupmobile Club.
