A Little History of These Metal Model Kits
Hubley Manufacturing Company got its start in 1894 as a maker of electric train equipment until 1909 when they entered the Toy business. The toys were made of cast iron and were often modeled on actual vehicles or machinery. As the auto became a mainstay on American streets, Hubley added simple cast iron autos to their line of toys which also included cap guns and animal figures.
Moving forward a few decades, we find the Hubley Manufacturing Co. of Lancaster, Pa producing its first line of Automobile kits. Now made of zinc die casting, these metal and plastic kits were first sold in 1959.
For the production year of 1964, Hubley 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.
