- California car restored in USA

- 8 cylinder 3945cc engine

- Rumble seat to rear compartment

Introduced in 1925, the Series E Hupmobile was powered by a 60hp L-head straight eight displacing some 3945cc. A departure for the company who had until this time produced four-cylinder cars, the new model's merits and the company's innovative approach to engineering development were unfortunately unable to stave off trouble during the worsening economic conditions prevalent at the time. A number of body styles were available including a two seat coupe with rumble seat as offered here. Having resided in California all its life, this Hup's interior was restored in America before being imported to the UK approximately a year ago. Finished in yellow with black wings and black mohair to the cabin, the car has seen little use recently and although "running fine" would benefit from a check over before serious use. A few blemishes to the paintwork aside, it presents extremely well and comes with a Swansea V5C, instruction manual and copy California title.
