Robert C. Hupp's career in the automobile industry included time with Olds Motor Works (1902-1903), Ford Motor Co. (1906-1907) and Regal Motor Car Co. (1907-08), before striking out on his own in 1908.
The Hupp Motor Car Co. was organized on November 8, 1908, in a rented factory at 345 Bellevue Avenue, Detroit, Michigan. Construction of a prototype Hupmobile Runabout was completed and first shown at the Detroit Automobile Show on February 15, 1909.
At the Detroit Automobile Show, prospective buyers were asked to pay an advanced payment of fifty dollars with each order. The car was a little 2-passenger runabout designated the Model 20. It had a water-cooled 4-cylinder 4-stroke engine rated at 16.9 horsepower, the transmission was a 2-speed sliding-gear type, and a rectangular 11-gallon gas tank was mounted behind the seats, all mounted on an 86-inch wheelbase. The cost was $750.00 F.O.B. Detroit. Accessories included a top, glass windscreen, trunk rack, gas headlamps and a Prest-O-Lite tank, at extra cost.
Production of the Model 20 began in March 1909 and a little over 1,600 cars were produced that year. The demand for the Model 20 was high enough that, in late 1909, the Hupp Motor Car Co. moved to larger facilities at Jefferson & Concord where the production in 1910 was increased to 5,340. Many Hupmobiles were exported overseas (200 units in 1910 were sent to New Zealand). Cost in 1909-1910 for a Model 20 Runabout was $750 F.O.B. Detroit.
The first body style of the Model 20 was the Runabout (1909), the next year the Runabout, 3-passenger enclosed Coupe and the Torpedo body styles were available. In 1911 and 1912, the Runabout, Torpedo, 4-passenger Touring, Utility and Delivery Wagon styles were available. There were a total of 14,500 Model 20 Hupmobiles made from 1909-1912.
