Hess Toy Truck
1966 Voyager Ship

All Hess Trucks from my collection are of the highest collectible quality that I can possibly find.

       The 1966 Voyager Ship
In 1966 a replica of a Hess tanker ship, "The Hess Voyager" was issued. Made in the U.S.A. by the Marx Toy Co. it measures 18 inches long. Features working lights. White bow and stern lights and green and red starboard and port lights. The ship is equipped with roller wheels. "Hess Voyager" decals on the sides and stern and Hess logos on both sides of the smoke stack.
Features include three masts, flag, anchors and a propeller. Very colorful box with silk-screen pictures
 of home delivery scenes and Hess facilities. A stand was available but did not come with the ship.
Extremely difficult to find, the only ship ever made.

1966 Hess Voyager Ship
Original Price: $1.39 - 150,000 made

Louis Marx & Co. - Made in U.S.A.
 Excellent! There are no missing parts
The masts, radar, anchors, flag, rudder,
life boats, propeller and decals are all there.
Ship is free of any cracks, breaks or major damage.
White parts are just outstanding, nice and white with only
 a few spots of glue discoloration. (See photos)
Chrome parts are shiny with no discoloration.
All four lights are working. Battery clip is in place.
 The decals on both sides of the smoke stack, the small one
 at the back along with one of the decals on the side are

all original and have a small amount of loss, the other one
 on the side is fully intact and a little off in placement leading me to believe this one had been replaced at one time.
Overall a very near mint ship.
Very good box is solid. It has some staining and some marks
although I think the photo makes it appear a little worse then
what it actually is.  (See photos)
Bottom of box has wear, discoloration and staining.
and a near perfect battery card, this may be a repro
only because it looks too new, if it is a repro, it is a good one.
(Please see all photos)
   Condition - Ship - C9.5 / Box C8.5

1966 Hess Voyager Ship
Original Price: $1.39 - 150,000 made

Louis Marx & Co. - Made in U.S.A.
Although from a technical point this Hess Voyager
 is not perfect it would have to be considered MINT
as you are just not going to find one better.
There are
no parts missing, the masts, anchors, flag, rudder,
life boats, propeller and decals are all there.
Ship is free of any cracks, breaks or major damage.
White parts are outstanding with
very little discoloration.
   All chrome is perfect including the screws.
The radar screen and some masts are discolored and
could be cleaned up, these are original. 
All four lights are working and the battery clip is in place.  
The decals on both sides of the smoke stack,
both decals along the sides and the small one at the back
of the ship are all there. There is some loss on the
 back hull decal U.S.A. but the rest are intact.
The top of the box looks nearly new.
Although Roy wrote his name lightly on one end you
are not going to find a better box. It is solid and is not torn,
bent, creased or marked up. Box has a shiny overall
vibrant color with absolute minimal discoloration.
Bottom of box is solid with no tear or broken corners
but has a bend and some loss at one place.
 Includes all three cardboard inserts
and an excellent original battery card.

   Condition - Ship - C9.9+ / Box C9.9+
