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. 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. This is a 1972 Hess tanker.

Truck Details:

  • Truck has all chrome accents in excellent condition (see pics).
  • There is a slight indent in one area along the catwalk and a blemish in the white striping near the front of the tanker (see pics).
  • Decals are all present with little to no wear. The “HE” on one front decal has slight loss all the rest are ok (see pics).
  • This is a nice display piece and perfect for the person that cannot afford the mint in box price.
