Hubley Cars - Member Built

Many of our members, both old and young, collect, build, and race Model A Hubley vehicles. Some of them have shared photos of their cars with us.

If you have a photo of your favorite Hubley that you' like to contribute to this page, send an e-mail to The Webmaster and attach a clear photo of each car.

Texaco

George Pope - California

My Father had a station in Arcadia Ca. in 1930. Last year in a moment of passion made a scale model of the station and used the Model A Hubley cars for background. I found the original photo in a family album. I could not find "Shell" pumps, so mine is a Texaco station. It was really fun to make all the parts from scratch.

As many of you know, I had a Model A School Bus that I drove all over the USA in the 1960s. The bus has recently been restored and is now in the MAFFI Museum in Hickory Corners.

After attending the dedication of the MAFCA Museum, I came home and decided to make a replica of our bus, the "Huff and Puff Notsorapidtransit." I used a Hubley frame, cut in half to get the length. I have not done the lettering as yet.

Here are some photos of the Bus as of now. Just a fun thing to do. I made a balsa wood School Bus body for it. 03/03/14 [Image]

Member Ove Alm, Sweden recently found these two older Hubley models
and plans to restore them.

You're never too old to enjoy Model A's, even models!

 

Richard Palmer from South Africa modeled these examples. Nice to see that members are still putting these neat models together. Note the background painting - it really makes the models seem more real!

Browsing the Internet I came across your pleasing site. As you ask for photo's on Hubley models, I'll be happy to make my contribution, even though I'm not a MAFCA-member. The pictures feature a 1930 Ford A Victoria and the original box it came in. As a kid I got this wonderful metal-kit in the early '70's as a present and I cherished it ever since. A few years ago I completely restored it but lack of information (those were my pre-Internet days) may have resulted in some incorrect detailing. Only the small lights in front of the doors are missing.
