Vehicle description

1939 HUPMOBILE SKYLARK 4 DOOR PROTOTYPE. AFTER JUST TALKING TO A HUPP COLLECTOR IN CANADA WHO HAS SERIAL NUMBER 504 , HE SAW PHOTOS OF MY CAR BACK DATED FROM THE 1970"S SHOWING THIS CAR WITH A FLATHEAD CADILLAC V-8 MOTOR INSTALLED AND THE FLAME PINSTRIPES ON THE CAR. HE TOLD ME THIS CAR IS SERIAL # R100505 WITH HAYS BODY # 282-5006. THAT WOULD MAKE THIS THE 4TH OR 5TH PROTOTYPE PRODUCED. ONE OF APPROX 35 PROTOTYPE CARS SENT TO THE BEST HUPMOBILE DEALERS TO GENERATE SALES AND ORDERS. THESE CARS WERE THROWN TOGETHER QUICKLY . A TOTAL OF 315 CARS ADDITIONAL CARS WERE BUILT AFTER THIS BUT NOT SURE IF THAT TOTAL INCLUDES THE 35 PROTOTYPES. SOME SUGGEST 39 PROTOTYPES WERE BUILT. THIS APPEARS TO HAVE A LEFT OVER CORD BODY DUE TO THE WIPERS BEING ABOVE THE WINDSHIELD. THE MOTOR IS A 6 CYLINDER HUPP SENIOR CAR . ENGINE # E72049 . SAME AS THE SKYLARK ENGINE. THIS ENGINE COULD BE ORIGINAL DUE TO BEING A PROTOTYPE CAR.OR ACQUIRED LATER. THE BODY IS MOSTLY SOLID EXCEPT ONE ROCKER PANEL BOTTOM. SOME RUST ON THE HOOD SIDE AND SOME MINOR FRONT FLOOR AREA AS SHOWN IN ALL THE PHOTOS. . THIS CAR WAS IN A BARN FOR OVER 35 YEARS. I MOUNTED THE FRONT FENDERS AND GRILL. IT CAME FROM CALIFORNIA AND THERE IS A NEWSPAPER I FOUND IN IT DATED 1988. I DO NOT HAVE A TRANSMISSION OR BACK SEAT . JUST THE PARTS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS. MILEAGE SHOWN IS 56K. NO TRADES, NO FINANCING . SEE OVER 70 PHOTOS ON MY WEBSITE WWW.PETESCLASSICCARS.COM DALLAS. TX GO TO MY WEBSITE FOR MY PHONE NUMBER. THANKS .PS. I JUST FOUND THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FRONT WINDSHIELD FRAME. ANOTHER HUP COLLECTOR JUST SENT ME A LETTER WITH A PHOTO FROM 1970 WHERE THE CAR WAS AT BANZAI AUTO WRECKING IN GARDENA CALIFORNIA. THIS BODY WAS BUILT BT THE HAYES BODY CORP.
