Rare 1940 Hupmobile at Lonestar Round Up

Written by Ken Altes

Using bodies from bankrupt Cord, Hupmobile and Graham made a small number of these cars trying to forestall their own demises, unsuccessfully. I could not find any pictures to confirm this as a 1940, but only a mention of 1939 Hupmobile Junior Six with this particular hood and headlights. 1940 Hupmobile in Austin Texas 1940 Hupmobile in Austin TX contact for sale1940 Hupmobile   Austin TX

  1. The “Junior Six” employing the Cord hood is certainly an oddity and a discovery at the same time. Saw this car in person and it had greater potential than what the advancing patina would tend to suggest. Rod or restore; importantly, someone SAVE IT.

  2. Hi Wayne, I’m always interested in your take on these interesting cars. Done a bit of research on this car and cannot really nail it down. Ken
