Rare 17″ WS Hubley Cast Iron Tri-Motor America Plane
I am pleased to offer this Antique Hubley Cast Iron Tri-Motor America Plane. This version of the America was the largest Cast Iron Plane made by Hubley, and features three prop motors that rotate via a spring drive when the toy is pushed across a surface. There are two visible pilots in the open cockpit, and right behind them across the large single wing panel are raised lettering of “AMERICA” and two circled stars. There is also a raised star on each side of the tail wing.
This plane is constructed with a cast iron body and cast aluminum motors/propellers. The two large front wheels are rubber, and look to be reproductions of original Hubley Tires. There rear small tire has no rubber but still rolls well. Plane looks to be all original (with exception to the tires).
This antique Hubley America is in good aged condition, showing some moderate shelf wear from display/age. Moderate paint wear throughout, with some mild oxidation present throughout the areas of paint wear. Spring drive works rotating the motors as you push the plane, although the props do stick occasionally.
Measures about 17″ Wingspan, about 13″ L, and 5-3/4″ H
