Beverly Rae Kimes says of Robert Craig Hupp’s 1908 prototype car bearing his name, “It was cute and it had moxie.” That was Bev and that was the Hupmobile, too. Hupp left his eponymous company in 1911, but the cars bearing his name continued to grow. 1925 was the last year for the classic 4-cylinder Hupmobile Series R of which this is a rare example.
