The R.C.H. Company was introduced in August of 1911. They produced
small vehicles that were powered by a four-cylinder, 22 hp engine
and were priced at under $1,000. Production would continue until
1915. The acronym R.C.H. represented 'Robert C. Hupp'and officially
had no connection with the Hupp Motor Car Company. This was because
Robert Hupp had left the Hupp Motor Company due to a disagreement
with the board of directors, and was court ordered not to build
vehicles with his name. The Hupp Motor Company feared that a
lesser-priced vehicle with a similar name to theirs, would damage
the reputation of their company.
During the first year of production, seven thousand R.C.H vehicles
were sold. Over 15,000 examples were sold the following year. The
business had expanded so quickly, that it was difficult to cope
with the success. In January of 1913, Hupp gave J.F. Hartz
presidency of the company, while Hupp took the vice-president
Even with strong sales, the company fell into receivership on July
25th of 1913. Inan attempt to meet the demand, quality suffered.
After just a few short years, the decision was made to cease
production of vehicles.
