I've got a close family friend who is offering their Hup due to failing health. He knows about the car itself but not much about the automaker as a whole nor what it is worth. I have ABSOLUTELY no knowledge, other than a few web searches, of what to look for before I purchase it, if he and I agree to a price. I believe it is a 1933 K-321 with cycle fenders, but I could be wrong. It had a restoration in the early 80s. It runs and drives as he occasionally uses it in parades or local car show. He says it's all stock without modifications. Any information will helpful. Pictures attached.

 

Thanks, 

Paul

You  are  correct in that it is  a 1933 Hupp Model  K. Hupp produced 4,940 K  in 1933. It  has  a 121 in  wheel  base and  a 90  Hp. 6  cyl  engine. I  am not  sure  of  how  many  body  styles it  was  produced in  as  it  was  a lower  priced car  as  a 6 cyl. model If  the  speedometer is  correct, 26, 391 miles  are  not  a lot of  miles on the  drivetrain. It is  a cycle fender designed  by  Raymond Leowy. He  was  also  a member  of  our Hupmobile Club  before  he  passed  away. I  do  not  feel  comfortable pricing the  car, but  if  i  owned it  and  was  selling  it, I  would  price  it  at  $15, 000 to  start with. We have a  great Hupmobile  Club  that would  help  you  very  much if  you  by  the  car. We  have tec.  advisors on  this  model. A  parts  locater flyer to  ask for  parts  or  sell spares  you  have.  We have  club  tours and  stop  often  for  ice  cream. Fell free to PM  me  with  any  other  questions  you  may  have.

Thank you very much for the information. I will share all this with the gentleman ASAP. I will definitely join the club if I am able to buy it from him. Again, thank you for your help.

   This is a very well built auto. I have owned two of them on the past 60 years. Hupps don't seem to command high prices but at $15, 000. it is probably a fair price depending on the actual condition. Chrome and mechanical issues can be costly at today's labor rates. There are a fair number of these cars still around and parts are available as many motor and mechanical parts were not changed over many years due to the Depression. If you are not interested in the car just list it in our parts locator. The reason I say list it in the locator is that most Hupp guys really don't want these cars to end up Hot Rods.

Good Luck
