Treasure Chest Thursday :: The $100.00 1938 Hupmobile Loan

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

In going through Man's mother's papers recently we found a note/chattel mortgage Man's father took out in 1945 for $100.00 to purchase a 1938 Hupmobile,  the engine number, serial number and title number are even on this document.  Oh, and the 1946 license number too!  CJ 4591


Now, you know the researcher types, it did not take me long to go looking for an image of a 1938 Hupmobile, and it did not take me long to find one either!  LOL  So, used with permission of Flickr user Alden Jewell - -



I am in love!!  Let's go shopping!!  That color will be just perfect, thank you!




*  Many thanks to Alden for the permission to use his image.

First time I ever heard of a Hupmobile was while looking through Mike's vintage family photos and coming across a photo of one with the name of it written on the back. Had to Google it.

Very cool. I agree with Lisa. Had never heard of a Hupmobile.
Do we know how long they lasted?
