Hupmobile Skylark (and Graham Hollywood)

Recommended Posts

Hi!

New member from England here.

Does anyone know if any of these Hups (or Grahams) ever made it into England?

(Re)discovered them after some research into the Cord 810/812!!

Many thanks,

Andrew,

Twickenham, England.

Hi Andrew , The Hupp car company was in the last years of car production and about 354 Skylarks & 1850 Hollywood Grahams producted it is more likely that they were not exported to England. If there are any there ,they were probably imported by the owners.

Thanks for that Hupp36. I had a feeling that it was the case. However, when I was researching an English motoring man called Col. Warwick Wright who during 1934/5 was involved with a company called International Distributors to import Hupmobiles into England. I only known when Wright was involved and not when International started or stopped impoting Hupps.. I'll dig back and let you know.

There is an incomplete list of Hupmobile Dealers and their address.

I am away from home and will be traveling for the next two weeks.

I will look to see if any dealers were located in the UK and post here.

I would appreciate seeing any dealerships you find.

You are probably away now, but I have already started on this. Before 194 and to an extent after, we had an unusual way of dealing with imports. Firstly you had the concessionaire and then the agents. I am putting together a list too and we can exchange info.

Best,

Andrew
