Allmän beskrivning :
The Hupmobile was an American car brand from 1909 to 1941, founded by Robert C. Hupp, a former employee from Oldsmobile and Ford.
In 1911, just two years after its establishment, Hupp left the firm by disagreements with his financial partners. His later attempts to build cars like the RCH, the Hupp-Yeats Electric, Monarch and Emerson were not successful. The Hupp Motor Corporation was quite a success, under the policy of his former partners.
The Hupmobile were built in Detroit, Michigan, and after the company’s Chandler-Cleveland Motors Corporation took over in 1928 because of their higher production capacity, production was continued in Cleveland.
From 1930 it went gradually downhill with the brand. The company made the same mistake as many other car manufacturers in those days; by pulling on the provision of many different designs, in an attempt buyers as much as possible, the production cost remained too high to make a lot of profit.
In the late 30’s and early 40, in a last attempt to save the plant, Hupmobile used, in partnership with the brand Graham-Paige, the body design of the last Cord. It proved unsuccessful, the Graham Hollywood and the Hupmobile Skylark were the last models built by the respective companies. In total, about 561,464 hubmobiles were built.
