Finished restoring another Hubley 500 series cab/trailer set. This was the second in the series, #501 and was first cataloged in 1950 with this style '48 GMC cabover. It's 18" long and originally came with 4 plastic '48 Packard sedans. The cars are kind of hard to come by loose and usually more than I want to pay. I loaded it with Welly(China) diecast '53 Ford Crestline Skyliners on top and a '53 Chevy Belair underneath. They're a little small for the transporter wheel wells but close enough. I got 'em from Dollar General for $5 a car. I bought the local DG out, so I'll have to pick up another one elsewhere. I see some originals on Ebay and might be able to get a full load eventually at a decent price in the future. I've made a little more progress on the restoration backlog.
