Hupp Motor Car Company (Hupmobile for short) was founded by Charles Hastings formerly of Oldsmobile. The first Hupmobile cost $8,500 to manufacture. The company was popular at the 1909 automobile show and their first car was the Model 20. The company was off to a great start, but by the depression of 1930, sales slid dramatically (via Live About).
The final Hupmobile model that hit the market was the 1941 Graham Hollywood. The car was far cry from the originality that Hupmobile was founded on. But the economy was in a bad state and there just wasn’t room for another automaker.
