  1. St, my friends 1927 Pierce Arrow model 36 is also a dual valve six. I love to drive this car.
  2. I made one for the 29 A Hupp that I was working on to sell .One of the Hupmobile Club members Dave Romani has taken up the project and is having at least 10 made. A fellow contacted me for 1 he needed so I told him to contact Dave. I have at least 2 other Hupps that may need one so I am going to call Dave and get on the list .Thanks for asking. Chuck Moore
  3. Super so glad to hear you got the engine running great. Maybe now I will get back to restoring my 28 Hupp roadster The pic of your car give me the push I need to finish my roadster.. Now I sold the 29 Hupp A sedan I brought to Fl, I need to finish the 26 Ajax and then the 28 Hupp
  4. Well I will be cleaning the Pierce for the last show be fore I head north. It is running great and I am happy. Just to sit in the Chauffeurs seat and drive this piece of history. It is a gift to me that I am so grateful to my friend that lets me drive this car and take it to the car shows .My trophy is talking about the history of this car. But I have never failed to bring home a trophy for the owner who has at least 30 trophies from the cars that he owns.
  5. Two weeks ago a friend asked me if I wanted to go up to a town near Chicago to look at a 1927 Pierce-Arrow limo that he was interested in buying. After looking at this car, I was truly in the presence of one of the most prestigious automobiles in my opinion ever produced. Chauffeur driven, divided window the passenger compartment door handles and foot rest are gold plated.This car is a piece of history. At this time the car is in transit to its new home. My friend purchased it. I t will reside in a heated, air condition, dust free environment. Here are a few pic.
  6. Just as a little information, the water fall base that holds the hood ornament and hood ornament if you can find one will cost about $1200 for both in good condition.
  7. Ok, this is the gauge all installed See pic
  8. For many of you out there who own a Hupp Series A 1928, 1929 and 1930-1932 S and there may be other models that have a gauge on the drivers side of the engine block , just above the oil pan that tells you how much oil is in your engine. If the small shaft that is fastened to a cork that floats to show you the oil level rusts off or is missing you will not have a clue how much oil is in the engine. My friends as he calls it " My drive around car" was missing the shaft and piece that showed the oil level. Well me being afraid that the rod I put in the engine to check the oil would not work well. Here in pic , I will try to explain how to fix the oil gauge.The first pic shows no rod and no gauge. The 2nd pic shows the rod and cork float.The 3rd. pic is me cutting the cork in a circle The 4th. pic is engine pan off the car. 5th the oil gauge in place held with a clamp. 6th. pic engine pan painted and ready to go back on the engine. 7th. pic Pan back on the engine. I have reached my limit on how many pic i can post, will post pic of the gauge completely installed.

  15. This was the best year of Hupmobile, they produced 65,000 cars that year.
  16. The owner has ordered the CD, Thank you George Took the Pierce Arrow for about a 15 mile trip this morning. Seems to shift better with the W-600 in the transmission. I am taking it to a car show tomorrow morning so I had a friend take a pic of me hand washing it.today. All I need is some nickel polish that i could not find in the shop .Called the owner and he is picking some up. Plenty of time in the morning to polish the bright work.
  17. Nice add, because of the AACA Forums, I recently sold a 1929 Hupp Century six as in this advertisement. I thank the AACA for providing this fine service.
  18. Brought my 1929 Hupp Model A to Fl hoping to trade it for my friends 1932 Hupp Model S. IThe model S is pretty much original, I love original cars.I will post a pic of the Model S if I can strike a deal.Here is a pic of my 1929 Hup.
  19. Got a call from the new owner, he is going to have the car painted, his sweet little lady would like a lighter color. She has a green house filled with orchids of beautiful colors . It is plain to see that she likes beautiful colors. I will post a pic when I see the new paint ..
  20. The new owner calls me, the car will not run. the starter just whirls. I tell him that the bendix is broken or a bolt on the bendix spring is broke or has falling out. I go down to his house and sure enough one of the bolts on the bendix drive is gone.I replaced it with a grade 8 bolt and start the car. He wants to adopt me. Ps, he still loves the Hupp.
  21. Our Grand son & his lady friend get the last ride before I deliver it to its new owner tomorrow morning.
  22. First of all, I would like to thank the AACA for providing this great service. The Hupmobile has been sold.
  23. Thank you George for the info. They tried to sell me synthetic and I said No. Now from your experience I am glad I chose not to use the synthetic oil as I do know it will find a leak when regular oil will not. I do also have the owners permission to go on his PAS site.I will have a conversation with the owner about the thumb drive. He is very willing to give me all the tools I need to keep this piece of history the best it can be. Thank you again for your help. Chuck
  24. Well , a lot of lookers, but no sale, but I did take some pic.
