      As I recall, Raymond Loewy designed the 1932 Hupmobile. I didn't do a search to be sure.

        Carl Eric Wickman retired from mining and bought the Hibbing, MN Hupmobile dealership in 1913 that included GoodYear Tires. He had a 'fancy' black one that folks admired but didn't buy so, Wickman bought it himself for $600.00. Wickman turned the Hup into the nation's first intercity "bus"
        ---the sire of a long line of Greyhounds. Each day it carried seven miners back and forth over ten miles of rutted roads between the firehouse in Hibbing and the Alice saloon. For 15 cents one way or 25 cents round trip, hard-working men who knew few luxuries could lean back, close their eyes, and feel like chauffered millionaires. The Hupmobile along with Mr. Wickman started what is now known as Greyhound Bus Lines, Inc.
