One last image of vintage toys from my small collection. This is a cast-iron race car marked with the number 22. The car body is silver with the hood, exhaust pipes and driver painted red. I have not been able to find details on this model but it is marked 2330 – Made in USA on the bottom. Most likely, this is from the 1940’s.
This car was made by the Hubley Manufacturing Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The company, originally incorporated in 1894 began making highly detailed, cast-iron toys in 1909 and continued in business through 1969 when it was acquired. A few toys continued to be made under the Hubley name by a series of owners up through the 1990’s but they are no longer in production.
