Hess Toy Truck
1967 Red Velvet Hess Truck

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

The 1967 Hess "Red Velvet" Tanker Truck

 In 1967 Hess issued its first dark green tanker truck.  Painted in the first company colors of dark green and white with yellow accents it measures 14 inches long. It has working head and tail lights with a switch on the bottom of the truck for operating it. It sold at the stations for $1.39 with the battery. Not marked on the battery cover as later tankers were. The Hess Company logo appears on the middle of cab sides. Fuel Oils and Gasoline appears on the sides of the tanker, on opposite sides of later tankers. Marked on the box Hess Oil and Chemical Corporation. Home office, Perth Amboy , New Jersey. Also marked "Made in United States of America"  Came on a red felt display stand and is commonly known as the "Red Velvet Truck"

"Red Velvet Box"

Original Price: $1.39 - 300,000 made
One of the most coveted and hardest Hess trucks to find
 I authenticate this truck to be an original 1967
and complete with all original parts.
No cracks, chips or damage. Still shiny and glossy.
Tires, cab, bumpers and hose all in excellent condition.
Hose and tires are not dried out, discolored or cracked.
Decals are all present and showing some loss at the seam.
Please see all photos
Exceptionally clean battery compartment
and lights are working.
Original red felt base in in excellent condition.
The box is in outstanding condition with some slight wear,
a small loss on the front of the box where the original tape that kept the top on was removed. NO tears or broken corners.
Box includes the both original cardboard inserts as well as the
enclosed card that came with the truck. I believe the card
is the only repro part of this truck.
 Please view all close-up actual photos of this truck and box.
