1927 Hupmobile Model A4 Coupe

Originally a four-door sedan but rebodied into a Doctor's Coupe during the 1970s. Lovely history file with service records, original advertisements and magazine articles featuring the car.Released from the Detroit manufacturing plant in late 1927, just prior to Hupmobile’s most successful ever year in 1928 when they produced some 65,000 cars, this A4 Coupe has lived quite a life. Originally a four-door sedan, as most A4s were, the car was shipped from new to Cape Town, presumably in right-hand drive as it is now. Whilst in South Africa, it was converted/modified with the roof being removed, but it wasn’t until the early-70s that it was rebodied as a Doctor’s Coupe based on Hupmobile Coupes of the period endowing it with a much more sporty look when compared to its rather pedestrian saloon origins.Fitted with a 3.2-litre straight-six cylinder engine, mated to a 3-speed manual gearbox, this A4 Coupe is reported to run and drive nicely. Within the history file there is some service history, various magazine articles over the years featuring this car, and some rare original adverts. On offer from 17 years long-term ownership, this charming A4 Doctors Coupe is a rare sight anywhere, let alone in the UK, so for a very reasonable outlay you’ll have the rarity bragging rights wherever you may take it. There are a number of options available to a new owner; return it to a saloon (sedan) or perhaps the convertible it was for a few years, fully restore it to a 'showground' level or just fettle the old girl and enjoy the gently patinated, lived in look, totally appropriate for a lady approaching 100 years old..SpecificationMake: HUPMOBILEModel: MODEL A-4 COUPEYear: 1927Chassis Number: 56161Registration Number: SV 9529Transmission: ManualEngine Number: A56592Drive Side: Left-hand DriveOdometer Reading: 56454 MilesMake: Only LHDInterior Colour: Brown LeatherClick here for more details and images
