Seller: ohmyflyguy (2.114) 100%, Location: Valparaiso, Indiana, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 183612654824 Vintage Hubley Cast Iron Motor Express Toy Truck- Overhauled per Client's design request (See Notes Below) Dimensions: Length- 7.5" x 2.25" Wide x 2.25" High Now, before I get a bunch of unnecessary mail, this was a contract project for an art educator a few years back. His goal was to introduce his students to the major designers during the Art Deco/Streamline period from 1930 through 1950. One of the major designer's during that period was the Russian immigrant, Count Alexis W. de Sakhnoffsky. The Count was a very prolific designer specializing in streamlined vehicles and also as design editor for a couple of magazines. He covered all aspects of vehicular travel but was directly connected with the White Motors Company (Trucks) and the Smith Brothers Coach Builders (Body and Trailer mfg.) LaBatt's of Canada purchased many streamlined trucks using the Count's designs as their rolling billboards for the Beer Industry. See picture included of the vehicle that inspired this toy. Treat yourself to some fun images and Google 1930's Streamlined Trucks The Count also influenced toy designs. This includes Wyandotte and Hubley. It is a Hubley that is featured in this auction of a Streamlined Motor Express Toy based on the White Trucks COE (Cab-Over-Engine) with Smith Brothers Body and Trailer. Compare the last two photos. The previous client once worked in the summers for Hubley in Chester, PA and happened to see this truck, finished this way on a table in a small boardroom. Needless to say he fell in love with it. After graduating with an art history degree, he spent most of his life in design work and also teaching art history. As a previous customer with model airplane restorations( See Sandman Overhaul), he asked me to restore this toy to exactly the design he had seen many years ago. Sadly my friend has past on last year and I am assisting his widow with reducing his collection. Please contact me with any questions, happy to help out. Note my 100% positive FEEDBACK especially as a seller. Please view for references. Also Google SANDMAN OVERHAUL and hit Images. You can then view other past projects for museums and collectors.
