1976 Hess Box Truck


1976 Hess Box Truck
with 3 Hess Labeled Oil Barrels

Original Cost:  $2.29
Manufactured:  500,000

Three miniature oil barrels with the Hess Logo are the distinguishing features of this truck, which is virtually the same as the 1975 Box Trailer Truck. With the exception that the 1976 truck has a 2-piece cab, the fenders are a separate molded piece from the cab. Also, the 1976 truck is a slightly darker green than the 1975 truck. Both trucks had two style barrels; the standard four ring barrels and some had a fifth ring. This truck had the same variations as the 1975 except there was no USA version made in 1976 that is known. The 1976 box had the line, “Made in Hong Kong” added to the end of the box with the picture of the cab. The 1975 did not.
