FS- 1913/14 Hupmobile touring model 32

Recommended Posts

This Hupmobile uses hand crank to start and does so dependably. It has gas headlights and kerosene cowl and tail lamps. The trim is nickel plated. It runs, drives and stops. A good driver that has usable upholstery and paint, but is not recent nor show condition. At $19,500 , a fun way to join in the brass era and nickel touring. Located in Lafayette, IN (765)427-7078 cell. Joe

Thanks for making me aware that I omitted the price. I was not hiding the price, I just failed to type it.

What a nice car that seems priced reasonably (for my untrained eye). I'm not going to be a buyer,  but I'd like to see more pictures if possible.

Here are a couple additional images. We drove this car around at Hershey this year and found it quite dependable.

Hank, no we have a friend with a nice little museum here in Indiana selling  a Jack Benny tv show Maxwell and both my son and I have Maxwells, so they likely were talked about. The Hupmobile is what we were driving around.

I guess that my failing memory has done it again.

 

I did see that it started easily but will need to thin my herd before considering another toy. Wanna trade for a Bentley?

Towing capacity unknown but many years ago I bought a similar '52 Bentley convertible that had a massive Class III hitch. Previous owner towed his boat with it. First thing that I did was remove the monster hitch.

Hank, I normally like to trade, but was hoping it to not be the case this time unless someone has a great tow vehicle for me. Not saying I would not trade for something of interest to me, but it is a less likely scenario this time. I like what cars I have to tour with right now and have little interest outside of touring. That being said, I did just buy a circa 1910 Rutenber 4 1/2 x 5” four cylinder engine. One might ask what I am going to do with that . Thing is I also must ask, as I have not yet figured that out. Have a merry Christmas. Joe

I believe several different car companies used a Rutenber engine. A couple of companies that come to mine are the Sellers made in Hutchinson Kansas and Auburn's out of Indiana.

What are you going to do with that engine?
