  1. Scott (708) 516-5342 in IL near Chicago has a 6 cyl 1928 Model A Hupmobile 4 door in good shape. Original interior needs redo bu all complete. Felix (402) 363-1895 near York NE has a 6 cyl 1936 Model 618G Hupmobile blue with complete engine overhaul. $12,000. I have not seen either car. The Hupmobile was built as a dependable car and many of the 28 & 29 cars were sold as Taxis.
  2. The 16" rim does not appear to have a number unless I am looking in the wrong place. Please look at the photos and let me know if I can provide anything.
  3. I have a 17 " wheel for an Airflow in very good condition. I am attempting to identify what model car the wheel came from. How can I identify the wheel, is there a part number stamped on it and where is it located? What is the best angle to use to identify the wheel? The wheel is a blue. Note: the tire on the rim is actually a 700 X 16, not a 17"
  4. My guess was an early 30's Buick but I didn't want to influence anyone. The second car is a mid 30's something like a Pontiac, Chrysler product, or an orphan car like Hudson or Reo. This is only my guess. See the attachment.
  5. I am in the process of restoring a 1923 Paige. Need a Thermostat housing for a 1923 Paige Detroit model 21-24 - six seventy. Prefer to purchase or will provide deposit to borrow one to make a copy. The Thermostat Housing consists of: a one-piece all-metal bellows, a valve, and a housing. Contact Merle at 513-897-2360 Dayton, Oh

  7. Can someone identify the year and make of the blue and white sedan and the gray car car behind it? This is a recreation of the John Dillenger gang robbing the bank in Mason City, Ia. Please open the web page link to view the clip. http://videos.globegazette.com/p/video?id=1610389
  8. In the early to mid 1960's I had a 56 conv. and it had full hubcaps but not wire ones.
  9. Go to a public weigh station usually located at your local moving company. They will charge $20 or $25 and you will have the exact weight.
  10. I am open to suggestions for a source for the material and someone in the Ohio area to install an interior for a 1935 4dr Model 50. Is it possible to purchase a complete interior as a kit? The car currently has all original interior intact but is in need of extensive repair or replacement. This car has the original paint with some flaking on the top of the fenders. It runs very well and is best described as a driver and not a show car. It could also us replacement running boards. I am open to suggestions.
  11. What is the distance between Hershey and the car. I will be at Hershey and am interested in seeing the car.
  12. Go to web page www.traderonline.com and do a search on 'Buick 1938' and you will find a white one for $19,000
  13. Your best source for parts and services is to join the HUPMOBILE CLUB. You can go to the web page at http://clubs.hemmings.com/clubsites/hupmobile/index.cfm to get additional information.
  14. Just a tip, If your windshield wiper is vacuum driven, the line will usually tap into the vacuum tank. My car has a rubber line under the dash connecting the two steel lines. Make sure the wiper and the line do not have a leak.
  15. I have a 1931 car with the soft insert for the roof. I was told by an older man that he used to repair the roofs on 20's closed cars by using the same technique used to cover the wing of a canvas covered plane. Try contacting someone who does airplane restorations for additional information.
  16. If you do a search for wheel puller on Ebay, several will popup.
  17. My 1931 Hupmobile with wood wheels uses a 2 1/2 inch puller. I have one you can borrow but I would like to have it back. It will screw on without being loose or need to be forced on. The extra ones are 2 3/8, 2 5/8, 2 9/16, 2 13/16 inches. The 2 9/16, 2 13/16 sizes are on one wheel puller with a double bell and a single bolt that you reverse as needed. As a point of interest, you can get one at Hershey in October. I am in Dayton, Ohio at (937) 287-8466 Jack
  18. What is the diameter of the threads on the wheel? I have a couple different sized bell shaped wheel pullers that screw over the wood wheel. Also, another method to remove a wheel is to: If you are removing the driver side rear wheel, jack up the passenger side wheel. Use a wheel knocker on the end of the axle or screw the nut out until it is even with the end of the axle. Now, hit the end of the axle/nut on the driver's side and the wheel should come loose on the axle. Jack
  19. Try Mr. Baines, he may have an extra wrench or know where you can find one. I believe he has extra Trippe bolts available for purchase. He sells restored lights at Hershey. Edward Baines (330) 494-9763 Canton, Oh
  20. As of Nov 15 2006 8,000 GBP (Pounds) = 15,120.66 USD (Dollars)
  21. I live in Centerville and may have contacts in Dayton to help you. jdwyer40@aol.com
  22. If you are a member of the Hupmobile Club, the web page is: http://clubs.hemmings.com/clubsites/hupmobile/index.cfm You can place a "want to purchase" ad in the "Parts Locator" for help. You need not be a member to place an ad in the "Parts Locator".
  23. I have the opportunity to purchase a 1918 touring car restored 12 to 18 years ago. The leather interior is excellent but the car will need to be stripped and repainted. I starts and runs well and the engine has been worked on years ago. I also have found a 1935 Deluxe 2dr with the motor and drive train restored. The seats and headliner are great but the carpet has shrunk about 1/4 all around the body. When driven, the steering wheel has play of about 1/5 to 1/4 turn. I assume the steering box needs rebuilt. It has independent front suspension and the shocks seem firm. Can anyone provide su
