  1. The Potter trunk was also used on the 20's & 30's Hupmobiles.
  2. Every 2 months , the club publishes the PARTS LOCATOR newsletter with good information. My guess is your contact is traveling from CT to Lebanon Canada for a 5 day Hupmobile rally/tour starting Monday, July 16th. I believe the 2013 tour is in southern Indiana just north of Louisville, KY. They are a fun event and I plan to attend next year. If you don't bring your car, you are encouraged to ride with someone.
  3. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Try using unpainted nuts on the head as they look much flashier. Also, the oil float level unit should be painted white. Are you a member of the Hupmobile Club? If not, join.
  4. It is a darker green but not a forest green. One photo was in the sun and the 2nd in the shade. Actual color is between the two. I am told that some 6 cyl engines were painted black like the 8 cyl. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PPG Platinum Distributer Ohio Auto Kolor, Inc. 700 S.

  5. Close off the vacuum line, at the manifold, to the wiper and try again. If a leak in a rubber hose exists, the vacuum can drop below the critical limit. Just something to check.

  9. Now, the question is, is any one interested? Thanks for everyone's input.
  10. It is light weight aluminum with no marking of mfg or identification numbers. It is 15 inches wide and 7 inches high.
  11. My guess is it is from a late 40's or early 50's Chrysler product. Can anyone provide the actual detail? It is pot metal and is 21 1/2 wide by 8 1/2 inches high.

    I posted this in September 2010 on a thread about 15% ethanol. The prices are based on two years ago. I believe you can still get 0% ethanol as you drive across Iowa. My brother lives in Stuart Iowa that has an ethanol plant just west of town. I need to check about the status of the plant. I was filling up at BP stations in Iowa. ---------------------------------------------------- One suggestion is to move to Iowa. They still sell gasoline without ethanol. You can also get 10% and 85% if you want it. Remember, they grow the corn to make ethanol and you can get non ethanol gas. Check out
  13. You should use a bell shaped wheel puller. The different wheel makers used individual size hubs. Measure the hubcap diameter to purchase the correct size. You can then post a request for your size on the Buy/Sell forum. There is a man previously identified here that will make one for you. Does anyone have his phone or email address. You can also look on eBay using the following search, there are several of different sizes available. ("HUP pULLER","HUB PULLER","wheel puller") -(flywheel,"fly wheel",honda,clutch,"steering wheel","Brand New Universal Hub Puller") The photo is an example of wh

  15. Your experts for your car are on the Dodge forum. Try posting there and they can tell you what carbs you will work best. If I am wrong, some one correct me, I believe the Carter BB1 carburetor was first used on stationery engines to drive pumps, compressors, etc. They hae been used as a good aftermarket carb when the original carb needed replaced. I have a 1931 Hupmobile that originally came with a Stromburg U2 made with pot metal. My car was purchased with a carter BB1 carb that worked fine. The BB1 does not have a unit for a hand throttle. I used it until I found a reproduction U2.
  16. In SW Ohio we have many events to show our vehicle. These are not AACA events but my 1931 Hupmobile always draws a crowd. We have an individual who has a web page of events within 50 miles or so of my home. Notes from Event Flyers June 10th we had a concours d'Elegance held at Ault Park in Cincinnati to support the Arthritis Foundation. The Sunday car show is free to show your vehicle but spectators pay $25 the day of the event and $20 if purchased in advance. The are charges for the optional special events the days preceding. I planned to show my car this year but was preempted by the gra
  17. Try Entertrainment Junction, a very large G Scale train layout of 2 miles of track. It is on I-75 at exit 22 about 6 miles north of I-275. EnterTRAINment Junction | Home of the World's Largest Indoor Train Display You can back to I-70 by taking I-71 to Columbus. Also, go east on I-270 to RT, then east to 32 to RT 35, to Charleston WV, take I-64 over to I-81 and North east to Harrisburg PA. This as an interesting trip with only the section from Charlestion to I-81 being hilly and it is all interstate. I have driven all the roads except I-81 north of I-64 to I-76 at Carlisle. This is the Sh
  18. They were sold as bug deflectors. You could also use the wind speed to add or minus your speedometer speed to check how much of a head wind you had. If you had a 12 mile per hour tail wind and you were driving at 60, your actual head wind would be 48 MPH. The were sold in the 50's or 60's and I don't remember actually seeing one.
  19. There is a Kaiser Darrin for sale in the Buy/Sell forum. Use the following link to go directly to the ad. http://forums.aaca.org/f119/beautiful-1954-kaiser-darrin-recently-restored-329499.html

  21. Am I correct, is this a Ford about 1933 or 1934? It is not the best photo but any help would be appreciated.
  22. It is for a 1931 Hupmobile 6 cyl Century 6. It may have been used in the 1932 Hupmobile 6 Cyl Model 216.
  23. Number 3 is for a Hupmobile, late 20's to early 30's. A normal and common error on Hupmobile parts.
  24. Have you checked out a company called "Trim Parts" in Lebanon OH. They make car parts for 1949 through 1974. They also make carpet formed to just drop into your car. I have nothing to do with the company other than living about 12 miles away. Check our their catalog web page at. Trim Parts
  25. I suggest you go to the following link as an example of a talented person. The link is a chronological history of his work in restoring his 1929 Hupmobile. http://forums.aaca.org/f190/1929-hupmobile-project-246532.html I suspect he has many more photo than what he posted.
