Robert Craig Hupp, a former employee of Oldsmobile & Ford, founded the company with his brother Louis Gorham Hupp in Michigan in 1908. Production began in 1909. In 1910, production increased by more than 5000. In 1912, Hupp would be one of two automakers pioneering the use of all-steel bodies. The company continued in existence until 1940, though it's decline actually began just before the Depression, when they adopted a business philosophy of trying to be all things to all buyers.

This a "mid-life" sales catalogue from this US automobile manufacturer, wherein they tout & detail the many features & attributes of the "Century Six" model.
