This is a Hubley Telephone Truck #482. It was cataloged in '51-'52 and has a trailer with a telephone pole.
It has #475 on the chassis, it was used on the #475 dump truck and several other trucks. It has a plastic cab and metal rear body. They had #478 Telephone Truck that has the same rear body but had a '46 Ford cab cataloged in '49-'50. Both of these had the "A" shaped boom. In '53 they cataloged the #478 with a "Y" shaped boom. It's about 12 1/2" long with the trailer, not counting the pole length. It's in good shape with the original boom string/hook and all 3 of the digging/tamping tools.
