Vehicle Story

This 1927 Hupmobile A-1 coupe has been part of a collection for the last ten years and is reported to retain mostly original equipment aside from a cosmetic refurbishment which addressed the body and interior more than a decade ago. Items of note include a vinyl-topped cab, a hinged rear storage compartment, and color-matched 12-spoke wheels wrapped in Goodrich tires. Power comes from a 196ci flathead inline-six backed by a 3-speed manual column-shift transmission. This 1927 Hupmobile A-1 coupe is finished in two-tone green and black over a gray cloth interior and is offered on a duplicate Texas title in the owner's name.

Starting in 1908, the Hupmobile line of automobiles was produced by Robert Craig Hupp in Detroit for the Hupp Motor Company, after Hupp had gained industry experience working for R.E. Olds and Henry Ford. The body of this example is finished in green with a black vinyl top and black fenders. The compartment for the rumble seat currently serves as storage for luggage, and an additional storage compartment is accessed aft of the passenger side door. The “Hupp” name is displayed prominently on the single center-mount tail lamp and on the radiator grille.

This coupe’s 12-spoke wheels wear bright Hupp-branded center caps and green body-color paint, and are wrapped in Goodrich tires. Braking is handled by a Hupmobile-engineered “Steeldraulic” system.

Inside the cab, a reupholstered dark gray cloth bench seat with matching door panels is fitted, and wood trim is present atop the dash and window sills. An auxiliary switch panel is located to the left of the steering column, and a factory-installed plate at the base of the column identifies this Hupmobile as "Car No. A 60177."

A chrome-rimmed display with a glass cover at the center of the instrument panel conveys vehicle information with a ribbon-style speedometer, a fuel gauge, and more, while an additional aftermarket gauge has been mounted below. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads approximately 34k miles, but total chassis mileage is unknown.

The 196ci flathead inline-six was advertised as a high-compression engine and is housed within a center-hinged hood. Power is translated to the rear wheels through a 3-speed manual transmission.

This 1927 Hupmobile A-1 coupe is plated in Texas as a vintage vehicle and offered on a duplicate Texas title in the owner's name.

@Mike67 – What is the level of rust? ...

My father just called. Said he walked completely around the car, looked under the car, not seeing a bit of rust. He says the car is painted under carriage from what looks to have been part of its restoration. Also, he mentioned that he bought it out of a car museum, where it was placed after the restoration. He said it has been "garage kept" without one day/night outdoors since he has owned it. Venetian blind is still original in back window, he believes. He commented that Museum folks had owned it for quite some time. He has owned it for over 5 years. All original interior otherwise. "Mohair" material interior...maybe? He's not sure. :) Speedometer, all inside gauges, lights, etc all work. He drained out the gas tank and put new gas in it recently to make sure no soured gas as of late.

@Calguy75287 – Thanks for the question Mike. I’ve asked my Dad to have Mom video him starting it. I’ll post later today. He’s off to an eye appt this morning. Hopefully I can send that to you before it ends. He just rebuilt the carburetor due to it having a small leak. Says it starts and runs good. Yes, still has original 6 volt system and he says it starts easy with it. ...

And yes, gauges all work.
