Cast iron truck models
Hubley toys were made by Hubley Mfg. Co., also known as Lancaster Brand Iron Toys. John E. Hubley originally manufactured electric toy train equipment and parts since ca. 1894. See also Gabriel Industries. Slogan: “They’re Different”
Purchased Safety Buggy Co. factory and moved to site in 1909. First manufactured cast-iron toys, horse-drawn wagons and fire engines, circus trains, and cap guns. Toy autos became the headliners in 1930s.
Though mass produced, each Hubley toy was largely hand-made. Each one was also painted by hand, so each is somewhat unique.
Hubley metal car kits
Moving forward a few decades, we find Hubley producing its first line of Automobile kits. These metal and plastic kits were first sold in 1959. The four original kits included the Indy Racer No. 852K, 1932 Ford Custom Roadster No. 853K, Model A Ford Roadster No. 854K and the Model A Ford Pickup Truck No. 855K. The Indy Racer was discontinued in 1961, never to be reissued, making it a rare kit. The Custom Roadster was discontinued in 1962 and was never reissued. The first issue boxes had compartments for the different parts. In 1963, the Model A Roadster was reissued in new packaging with model No. 850K-300 and the Model A Pickup would be reissued in its new 7 X 10 box with its original model number.
For the production year of 1964, Hubely discontinued issuing their kits under the ‘K’- (Kit) series numberings and simply placed the numeral ‘4’ in front of the previous 3-digit-K number. and retained the suffix number. Thus, the 8xxK-300 became 48xx-300. Some releases were just 48xx. This numbering system continued until July, of 1965, when Gabriel Industries took over the Hubley operations. During the Gabriel Era, the suffix number was dropped completely and the 48XX-300 became simply model kit number 48XX.
By quickly converting to cheaper smaller toys during the Depression, they avoided financial woes experienced by many other toy companies. Iron shortages in WWII and commitments to fill war contracts did stop the toy division in 1942, until after the war. The name was later changed to Gabriel Industries and still existed as a division of CBS as of 1978.

Did Hubley ever mark vehicles on the underside with an H with a circle around it? I have a set of cast fire vehicles (engine, ladder, and chief’s coupe) with this marking. Approximately N scale size.
►reply: Not sure. If the circle
has a small gap and is bisected by a single vertical line than it could be Hashimoto.

I’m owner of metal kit 26443 (ford T depot hack). The parts with numbers 62 and 78 are lacking.On the leaflet with assembly instructions, there is also an opportunity to fill in the missing parts. It has to be send to “hubley division, gabriel industries inc, 110 pitney road , lancaster pa, 17602”. I don’t know this adress still exists. Is it possible to let me know where and how I can find the missing parts ?
►reply: This is very difficult, because indeed the address doesn’t exist anymore. Your kit is from 1976 so I’m afraid you have to look for another kit for spare parts. Also take a look on this website.
