  1. If anyone is interested in my 27' series A it's up for sale. Good buy with lots of history. http://www.ebay.com/itm/151308636066?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  2. Love the dash and gauges, mine is a '27 but still looks very similar, does it have a 6 or 8 cyl?
  3. Oh well, looks like they took the major part of the footage from the return trip down the same road. They had us turn around at the end of the block and come back up the street. The Hup idled for what seemed like an hour and didn't overheat. It was a good day though I had a good co-pilot, Lt. Nadd's girlfriends (Shannon) grandfather, another veteran. He seemed to have liked it plus he was from Detroit like me. This was another view. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuSjsLA9Jdo
  4. As you might know I was in a parade for the returning of LT Chuck Nadd. The parade was recorded for a up coming Budweiser commercial. Hopefully my 27' Hupmobile will be seen in the footage. Here's a teaser http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODeevS6Pb8c
  5. Was asked to join the parade for Lt. Chuck Nadd returning home from Afghanistan, that was a no brainier. After a brake adjustment, wash and wax off we went. Everyone loved the car including retired veteran Dan riding shotgun

    Hey Gene, I have an extra. What model do you have. I have the 2 door series A with rumble seat.
  8. it's a 27' 6 cylinder. Do you know where you got the graphite packing rings from...I'm ready to try anything. thanks
  9. To make a long story short, it's getting harder to keep water in after a drive, it's fine while driving, but when I stop and shut it off it will drip out the rope seal area . I recently had the water pump rebuilt and it still leaks, they suggested adding more rope and tightening nut. Again and again and again. At what point will it stop. I don't want to over tighten the nut, just a bit each time, or is it normal to add water every trip you take? Anyone rebuild these pumps with a seal? Is this system under any kind of pressure?
  10. Wife wanted to take a ride and eat in town, after breakfast we took a few pictures of the car at it's 2nd home, (first home just 45 minutes away) the home has been restored and on the historical register. The house is now home of a real estate business and the garage around back (where the car sat apart since '78 is now office space) We thought it would be cool...... Enjoy. Eric
  11. Sorry, you were the first person I thought of. I'm sure others might know also. I was reading in a older Hupp Heard my car ('27 series A 2 door with rumble seat) formally the David Kilbourne car, only 3 members with that type. How many of these cars were built? Anyone know? thanks P.S. that's the house behind it I rescued it from last year, it too is now on the historical resister....
  12. It's funny how sometimes it's right under your nose....well this time in the owners manual. For those that need to see it....but I still want to know what TILT is?
  13. Got one, but doesn't show the break down how this hooked up, like what's TILT mean, I get most of the others, and straight down (pictured) everything is off , and where does that wire (rheostat ?) connect, between which posts...that kind of stuff. thanks
  14. I would like to replace my aftermarket switch with this original unit I got with a box of parts that came with my car. I couldn't find any info on it, how did it work and how did it wire up.
  15. Took the Hup out last weekend to the Groundhog Gala show, had lots of fun and drove her 60 miles...had a bit of over heating (see other post) but not a problem being fixed as we speak.
