Robert Hupp (1876-1931) founded the Hupp Motor Car Co. in 1908 in Detroit.  The cars sold well for many years although Robert Hupp himself had left the company in 1911.  1928 was a record year for the firm but the 1930’s Depression hit the company hard.  The last model made was the Skylark before manufacture ended in 1940.
