Original Cost: $1.89
Manufactured: 400,000

  • 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 bright chrome accents and complete with all decals in excellent condition with the usual wear for its age (see pics).
  • Battery compartment is clean and all the lights are in working order.
  • Box has bright graphics and in excellent condition with some slight age spots on the top of the box (see pics). The one end of the box top has a little frayed area on one corner (see pic). The bottom of the box shows slight wear as well (see pics).
  • The box has the  “Rare Caution label” on the top which is very hard to find anymore (see pic).
  • Complete with both top & bottom inserts in excellent condition.
  • 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 1974.
  • 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 (see pics).
