Now this 1931 Hupmobile coupe is a neat little number. First, its unusual; when was the last time you saw one? Secondly, its been very cleverly upgraded with a modern V6 powerplant, but not so modified that wed call it a hot rod. No, this is a car with its soul intact and its simply had a heart transplant, and we like it a / br / Hupmobile was a well-regarded brand in the early days of motoring, combining style and value in a way that put it on par with makes like Oldsmobile and Buick. The stylish lines of this 31 Hupp certainly make it easy to see why it would have been a popular choice in the 1930s. The sleek coupe bodywork almost looks chopped, but no, thats factory steel in its original proportions. The upright grille looks impressive and the handsome two-tone green over black paint job is very period correct. Its nicely finished even though the paint is a few years old, suggesting high-quality workmanship. Sure, its got a few signs of use, but this is a car thats going to attract a lot of attention and generate a lot of questions every time you take it out of the garage. Dual sidemounts add big car elegance and a fold-down trunk rack adds a rakish look. Theres only one taillight because thats how they did things in 1931 and while the running boards arent exactly authentic, we do like the warm look of natural wood against the black / br / The interior is quite handsomely appointed in tan patterned cloth that seems period-perfect for this tidy coupe. The vertical pleats and buttons are right for the era as well, and they thoughtfully kept the original seat frame intact so it feels right when youre behind the wheel. Speaking of the wheel, it, too, is original, as are all the gauges, which, remarkably enough, are working with the upgraded powertrain. The most visible change is the fact that theres no clutch pedal and the shifter is a Lokar unit, but most folks will never notice. Its all in very nice shape with a period vibe that we find very appealing and we respect the builders dedication to keeping as much of the Hupmobile equipment intact as possible. Theres also a nicely finished rumble seat thats good for two passengers and its surprisingly comfortable once youre situated back / br / Instead of the Hupps original six, theres a late-model GM 2.8 liter V6 with throttle body fuel injection, and the installation is really quite well done. The modern powerplant makes plenty of power and torque to move the heavy coupe, and with all that modern hardware, its bulletproof reliable. Its nice to see they went the extra mile to make it blend in with green engine enamel, and the original radiator is now cooled by a very effective electric fan, meaning that this sucker never runs hot. The brakes were likewise upgraded with a dual master cylinder with power assist, but theyre the original drums and the factory live axle still hangs on leaf springs up front. The transmission is a GM automatic so no worries about reliability there, and it appears that they somehow got it to connect to the original Hupmobile rear end. Theres a custom exhaust system that has a nice 6-cylinder growl that doesnt stand out too much and a fresh gas tank hangs out back. Factory wire wheels are just gorgeous in cream and carry right-sized 18-inch Lester wide whitewall / br / Not a hot rod but maybe a very clever resto-mod, this is an unusual and unusually handsome coupe thats eminently usable thanks to a nicely done engine transplant.
