HUPMOBILE AERODYNAMIC 8

Sedan, fixed-head coupé, limousine.

Big features of this one are semi-recessed headlamps and a hideous three-piece panoramic screen à la Panhard. The spare wheel lives outside the sloping boot lid, rear springs are underslung, and 85mph comes up on 115bhp. Limousine on a stretched, 146ins wheelbase (1935 only) apparently a British 'special'. New grille, hydraulic brakes and shorter chassis for '35, and rare '36s have built-out boots and overdrive.
