1988 Hess Truck and Racer

This truck takes accessories to a new level! It is a transport truck carrying a friction-powered race car. The car can be removed and played with separately. This is also the first truck to display the year on its license plate. This truck was made in both Hong Kong and in China. Another variation is the “gold tone” grill on both trucks.
The box features the truck parked next to a Hess Gas Station with Christmas trees and mountains in the background. The bottom contains battery installation instructions and race car operation instructions.
