This the Hubley Stake Truck set #503 cataloged in 1950. It's not in great shape, but actually this one of the better examples I've seen. It's a tough one to find period, it was only offered in 1950. I've never seen a boxed example, just loose with a lot of paint missing. The flatbed #500 was catalogued in 48-49 in red with stake sides and logs as the Tractor Trailer Truck and advertised as The 3-1(stake side, log truck, flatbed). In 50 they cataloged the #502 with logs in red and the #503 with stake sides in orange. This completes the tractor trailer sets with the 48 GMC COE cab. They're pictured in the last photo L-R; #505, #503, #502, #501, #500. Maybe eventually I can find one in a better condition, but I just don't believe they exist.
Thanks for looking in,
