Original Cost: $1.69
Manufactured: 400,000
SKU# H1972CL-13

  • What a great starter piece for the person that can’t afford the $450.00 price tag for a MIB 1972 Hess Tanker.
  • This edition of the Hess collection is very similar to the 1968 version with some slight changes.
  • Truck has round feet on the landing gear rather that square that the 68s had.
  • Tanker itself is more round than oval like on the 1968 and is also a lighter color green.
  • Truck has all chrome accents only missing the passenger’s mirror.
  • The decals all in good condition only slight wear in areas (see pics).
  • Battery compartment is clean and all the lights are in working order.
  • Box is in rough condition with part missing on one side, a tear on the other but does have the rare “Caution” sticker that is partially missing (see pics). Complete with both top & bottom reproduction inserts.
  • End of the box reads “Amerada Hess Corporation” on one end and the other states “Made in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong”.
  • No battery card was issued in 1972.
  • Difference between the 1972 & 1974 Hess trucks can be seen by looking at the top of the catwalk of the tanker.
  • 1972 catwalk does not go to the end of the truck giving it a small lip at the end.
  • 1974 catwalk extends to the very end of the tanker and then rounds off at the rear.
  • Truck measures approximately 13″ in length and is a great display piece.
