The original item from Ogee's Antiques is now SOLD.
This little tow truck was made by the Hubley Manufacturing Company. The old orange truck has a molded grill and headlights and a nickel plated tow hook. It has its original paint and white rubber tires. On the bottom it is stamped; Hubley U.S.A. and 222 with another 2 that is offset. I believe this is from the 1930’s.
The truck measures about 3 ½” long with the tow hook extended about ¼” further. The casting is crude and rough but that is in the manufacturing and there are no cracks or breaks. The paint is original but appears to have been weak to start with so the metal shows through plus there is chip wear to the paint from being played. The tires are hard from age but in good condition with minimal wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
