This Rare 1969 Amerada Hess Tanker Truck was not released to the public and very hard to find. Comes complete with truck, box and all packing.
- One of the most difficult trucks to find in the whole Hess collection.
- In 1969 the Hess Oil and Chemical Corporation merged with Amerada Petroleum Corporation.
- The new company name, Amerada Hess, appeared on the side of the Hess Oil Tanker Truck.
- The Hess logos no longer on the cab doors but the “Gasoline” decal stayed on the passengers side of the tanker and the “Fuel Oils” on the drivers.
- This was an in-house promotion to announce the new company name and were only given out to the executives of Hess and Amerada Corporation.
- The battery compartment is clean (see pic) and all the lights are in working order.
- The “Seasons Greetings” card is also included (see pic).
- The truck measures approximately 13″ in length and complete with excellent decals with only slight age wear (see all pics).
- The box is in excellent condition with bright crisp graphics and probably one of the best we have ever seen (see pics).
