    Engine Differences btw 29A and 30S

    Well the part # for the crank shaft for the 1928-29 was crossed out in my parts book and some one wrote in the part # for the crankshaft from the 1930 Model S parts book. The crank shaft being the same , the rest of the parts, connecting rods, pistons should inter change with the 1928-29 model A hupp. Just remove the oil pan on both engines and mic. the crank shaft on the same journal on each engine and see if they are the same size. They should be the same dimension. I know this is a lot of work , but some body else may have a better idea.

    Early 20's Hupp for reliable touring?

    Yes, the disc wheels were an option. You can put them on a wood wheel car but you have to use the hubs that the disc wheels are on. The wood wheels have the hubs built in. They used hickory wood for the wheels and if the wood is in good order they are very trust worthy. My 1924 R sedan has wood wheels and they are fine. I also have a 23 R speedster with disc wheels but its not running at this time..

    Ed, the Hupp service bulletin says if the part # is the same the parts will interchange. I will check my 28-29 parts book against the 1930 S parts books and see what i can find out.

    Ok, My friend from the Hupp club, Bill Shift drove a 1923 Model R touring from Hurly N.Y. to San Francisco and back. and yes to the speed but do not be afraid to step up to 40 once in a while. Shifting is also easier than the other car you mentioned.

    I just joined Hupmobile club, "again," sorta

    Well I would as a charter member of the Hupmobile Club, welcome you to the family of Huppers. I call it a family because the people you meet through the club and on the great tours the club has are so friendly and come from all walks of life. If you have the opportunity to go on a hupp club tour you will see for yourself what i have been talking about.

    1914 Locomobile - For sale

    Wayne is a good friend of mine. I watched at different times as the car was going together. One thing I remember was he showed me the muffler. Its made out of several pieces of cast metal bolted together with long rods.. He also has a book about the car from start to finish. Many good times were had with Wayne , Tom and Denise on Hupp Tours.

    My "new" 1933 Hupmobile

    In 1967 when I bought my 1932 model F Victoria, some one had hack sawed off the hood ornament. I got a new reproduction from Pulfer and Williams about 1971. It was made of brass and a great reproduction. Sold the car and the hood ornament to a good friend in Cal.

    Hupmobile 1925 3 Dr. Sedan

    After cleaning it up and soldering 2 tiny rust holes making a new gasket it I reinstalled on the Hupp and I made it to the NAPA paint store. Driving that car is a hoot. Add this Hupp to my list and I have driven 7 different models. Only 11 more to go. I did not think to take a pic but will do so.

    Hupmobile 1925 3 Dr. Sedan

    When taking the 25 up to NAPA to have them match the paint so I could do some touch up, within sight of the store, it died. long story short the pic will show you why it died.Will clean it up and see if it will be ok. If not I have another that I can install. See Pic.

    Hupmobile 1925 3 Dr. Sedan

    The R 8 and R 10 were produced from 1918- to early 1923. On the 1923 cars R11/R12 models, the wheel base was increased from 112 to 115 inches. Also in some of the sport models had a nickel plated radiator shell, radiator cap, cowl lights and drum headlights. Yours being an R=12 . Your body was larger than the R-11 by an inch.. This was also when Hupp introduced the 3 Dr. sedan. Now the answer to your question. Yes, the majority of the 1923 R model Hupps were R-10

    My "new" 1933 Hupmobile

    Adding one thing, the circle H is the hood ornament . It is bolted to the car. The radiator cap is under the hood. Please do not think that I am a smart A------ for explaining this as I have owned 2 cycle fender Hupps.

    The 2 scans will tell you the connection. Raymond Loewy was a member of the Hupmobile Club untill he left this earth. He and Henry Miller one of the founders of the Hupmobile Club were good friends.
