The term "upright piano" used to refer to very tall pianos - in the 55" tall range. Nowadays, "upright" just means a piano that stands against the wall- also known as a "vertical" piano. Generally, the taller the piano, the longer the strings and the larger the sounding board area, which can mean better tone and slightly better tuning stability. But older uprights usually have a slew of problems related to the action, bridges, tuning pin tightness and much more.
Many, many American manufacturers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries made very tall upright pianos, and many of those are still around.  However, those old pianos do not usually represent a good value. If you are considering an older, large upright, it is in your own best interest to hire a qualified piano technician - a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) to go and examine it before deciding.
