Pup Motor Car Company
Automotive manufacturer of Wisconsin.United States from 1948 to 1949.
The 1948 presented Pup was a very simple but unusual, open runabout with two seats, no doors and no roof so weighs just 600 lbs. The chassis was made of oak and had 1829 mm wheelbase. The 2591 mm long construction consisted mostly of plywood. The engine at the rear was a single-cylinder engine built by Briggs & Stratton , which made 7.5 bhp (5.5 kW). with luggage space at the front.
In 1949, this vehicle was replaced by a brand new pup. Although this similar design principles followed, but the wooden frame chassis now had a wheelbase of 1727 mm and the smooth-surfaced construction was 2845 mm long. In contrast to its predecessor, there was a fabric roof and fabric doors. The single-cylinder engine had given way to a two-cylinder in-line engine from the same manufacturer, which brought it to 10 bhp (7.4 kW).
The pup cost $ 595 in both years of production. In 1949, one could buy a fabric roof for $ 50, and the fabric doors for $ 25.
