I was re-reading this thread and noticed we hadn't mentioned any of the Hollywood/Skylark Convertibles which I think are attractive.

The last picture of the convertible is a Hupp Skylark, not a Graham, regardless of what the caption on the picture says. The Skylarks had a painted grill in their hoods like this while the Grahams were chrome. I have had several Hollywoods and they always got attention.

For some photo Ops and advertising Graham used the Hupp conv and called it a Hollywood.

Hi,

I came across the following photos of a Hupmobile Skylark alleged to have been found in a barn about 2002 or so. I don't know anything about the car's whereabouts or condition today.








I found the following items to be of particular interest:

1) The tail lights are located Westchester-style in the trunk lid, not outside of the trunk opening in the rear body panel; and

2) The wipers are located Cord-style at the top of the windshields, not at the base of the windshields in the cowl.

Pictures I have seen of Graham Hollywoods have the tail lights located to the sides of the trunk opening and the wipers located in tranmissions placed on the cowl.

Does anyone know if the tail light and wiper locations are definitive identification traits distinguishing a Hupp Skylark from a Graham Hollywood?

And, oh yeah, I'd like to own this car...

The white car above was one of the very few Skylarks built by Hupp by hand in 1939. The later Skylarks built by Graham have the tail lights on the outboard. I'm not sure of the exact number produced by Hupp in 1939 but want to say less than a couple dozen. Perhaps a Hupp guru could chime in.

Btw didn't some of the very last Cords have the tailights on the outside of the body?

And finally, if anyone is in the area my dad and I are bringing our Holllywood Conv to St Johns at the end of July. Swing by and say hi.
