       The Hess B Mack Tanker Truck
 In 1964 Hess issued its first promotional toy truck, the B Mack Tanker.  Painted in the first company colors of dark green and white with yellow accents it measures 12 1/2 inches long. It has working head and tail lights with a switch at the back of the truck for operating it. It sold at the stations for $1.29 with the battery which Hess still includes with all its trucks till this day. The tanker could be filled with water using the red funnel that was included and then emptied through the attached rubber hose. Marked "Made in Hong Kong by Marx Toy Company" on the bottom of the truck. The Hess Company logo appears in the middle of the tanker with separate decals surrounding it labeled Solvents and Chemicals, Fuel Oils and Gasoline. Hess logo decals are on both cab doors. The colorful green, white and yellow silk-screened box has service station and refinery scenes. The bottom half of the box is solid green. It is marked on the box "Authentically Styled Miniature of the Hess Tank Trailer" from "America's Fastest Growing Integrated Oil Company."  Also marked "Made in Hong Kong."  Instructions show how to operate the vehicle.
This uniquely designed high quality plastic truck was issued to be a promotional item for kids to play with but later became highly sought after as the first truck of the collection.
 The B Mack Tanker was reissued in 1965 with no changes.
