This is your very rare opportunity at a distinguished pre-war car that's ready to leave here on a Saturday and win awards on that Sunday. This 1934 Hupmobile Coupe is a memorable design that showcases a true vintage spirit, right down to the rumble seat.
<br><br> The W-417 coupes are a fun story. They look a bit like a Ford, because Murray built coupes for both Ford and Hupmobile. But the latter got a touch of the premium, and it starts with the color package. After all, you could consider this a beige and black two-tone, and the gloss of the finish loves to highlight the curves of the smooth steel body. But really there's a third paint, too. The tasteful brown seems to act almost like brightwork trim as it highlights the full-length body crease, accents the windows, and it's even a pinstripe for the color-matched wire wheels. And there are more premium details, like the way the waterfall grille curves at the bottom, and the well-coordinated look of the full-size spare wheel cover on the rear. So while the body is ford based, the details like the vinyl roof, padded running boards, and mirror-like chrome bumpers all make this Hupmobile look like a Cadillac.
<br><br> Suicide doors always look cool, and they are your gateway to a well-done interior. This was restored in the 1980s, and so you have a nice sense of style that hasn't been over-done for modern convenience. That means a classic button-top bench seat finished in a comfy velour. The door panels, sail panels, and headliner all coordinate. Plus, carpeting, a smooth dash, and detailed gauges with the Hupmobile logo at the center are all part of this quality classic feeling. Not only do you have roll-down side windows, but also a pop-out windshield for venting. Plus, that open rear window is a terrific pairing with the rumble seat. It was reupholstered in durable vinyl with the same button-top look as the front, and so it makes for a quality presentation of this hallmark item.
<br><br> More of this coupe's distinction is under the hood. It has the correct 224 cubic-inch inline-six. The presentation is so clean and correct you can see the declaration of "heat treated chrome nickel alloy" stamped in the block. More than just look great, this one also shows great care. That's why it fires up easily and runs smoothly. The three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control. And while it rides with that true classic feeling, a full chassis lube in 2019 also helps keep it feeling smooth and confident.
