The truck is a newly designed cab and box trailer. It comes with three small oil barrels with labels.  Note the unique sliding doors on each side of the trailer, rear doors that open and close and working headlights and taillights operated by a switch underneath the trailer. This is the first non-split window truck in the Hess line. 

There were 4 versions of the 1976 Hess Truck which can be seen on the front part of the trucks trailer and underneath.

  • Version #1 has the candy canes on the front of the trailer with the small writing underneath that says “AMERADA HESS CORPORATION MADE IN HONG KONG”.
  • Version #2 has the candy canes on the front of the trailer with the large writing underneath that says “AMERADA HESS COPRRATION MADE IN HONG KONG”.
  • Version #3 has the 7s on the front of the trailer with the small writing underneath that says “AMERADA HESS CORPORATION MADE IN HONG KONG”.
  • Version #4 has the 7s on the front of the trailer with the large writing underneath that says “AMERADA HESS COPRRATION MADE IN HONG KONG”.

On the versions with the large writing underneath of the trailer part of the truck you will notice that the “O” is missing in CORPORATION. This design was purposely done due to lack of space (see pic).
