THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The early history of this Roadster Coupe is largely unknown, but it is believed to have spent most if not all of its life in Southern California. It was first sold new at Greer Robbins, Co. in Pasadena California as the original dash mounted dealer badge shows. The second owner is believed to be Marion Burroughs of La Crescenta California, it appears the car was then acquired in 1963 by Byron Martin of Buena Park California, who in turn sold it in 1964 to Ron Walden of Culver City, California. Mr. Walden put the car up on stands, drained it of fluids, and kept the engine marveled and free, but never got around to the project. After around 53 years up on stands in Mr. Waldens care, the consignor acquired the car in December of 2017, when it was brought to Irvine California. Requiring nothing more than an inspection, addition of vital fluids and a fuel system, the Roadster Coupe roared to life in August of 2018 for the first time in nearly 60 years or more. Around the end of 2018, the consignor was contacted by the Hupmobile Club in response to the NFL searching for a Hupmobile to be used in the NFL's 100th anniversary commercial series "Peytons Places". This Coupe was selected and used in the filming of the first episode with Jay Leno and Peyton Manning discussing the founding of the NFL in a Hupmobile dealership. Later, Jay Leno taught Peyton Manning how to drive a manual transmission using the Hupmobile.

This 1923 Hupmobile Roadster Coupe spent most of its life in a dry slumber. It is a solid car, it appears to have had the body painted its current color sometime in the 1950s-60s, while leaving the fenders and frame untouched. The top material and interior appear to have been done at a similar time, though the leather of the seat back may be original. The original wooden wheels are in excellent condition. With further care and new tires, it will be ready for longer outings.
