Dang that thing is low!
I think i got carried away . I am going to raise the back to give it some rake, but it is kinda rediculous
Feels good to see someone beside me building a Hup,your doing great,love your work. I'm in work but I have a 1917 cowl on my own ,with a 1924 grill shell,the name I gave mine is "Hubba Hubba Hup" running Merc flathead V8 with 2x2,I'll try to do a build thread later on my own. Tell then,I'm working right now on my old highschool hotrod,1928 A roadster with y-block 292,but I'm close,and will do Hubba Hubba next,I got most parts stroed away.
Keep going nice man,and yup looks too low for roads around my town,I'm planing on about 3in. clear of ground for my build/no bags
Thanks dana, sounds like your on the right track, can't wait to see it come together.

Grandfather went cross country in a Hupmobile with no headlights and a few dollars in his and his brother's pockets....that car and their ingenuity and on the road mechanics got them from NY to California back in the mid 30's.......
Now I get to see what one actually looked like.....well, the first day you got it anyway!
love all the artful metal work and creative building....inspiring!
If I can find a picture, I think I can show you guys the old Hup on its first day...It has something like "CA or bust" painted on the side.....
