Hess Toy Trucks
1968 and 1969 Hess Trucks

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

       The 1968-1969 Tanker Truck
In 1968 and 1969 Hess reissued the 1967 Tanker Truck. A split window tractor with a fuel oil tanker in the dark green and white with yellow accents and measuring 13 1/2 inches long. This 18-wheeler has Hess logo decals on the cab and back of trailer with "Fuel Oils" on one side and "Gasoline" on the other.  Production was switched to Hong Kong from the U.S. this year. Still using the 1967 mold and still made by Marx Toy Company. Bottom of tanker reads "Made in Hong Kong. Marx Toys." The red velvet bottom insert of 1967 is replaced by a white cardboard one. The box has pictures of the tanker on the top and side and gas station scenes. The 1968 box end reads "Hess Oil and Chemical Corp Home Office Perth Amboy, New Jersey." The 1969 box end reads "Woodbridge". This is how to determine what year it is.

     1969 Amerada Hess
      Tanker Truck
Louis Marx & Co.

Made in Hong Kong

1969 Hess Tanker Truck

Amerada Hess

Not available to public - 10,000 made

Considered the rarest of all Hess trucks this early model is the same as the 1968/1969 tankers trucks but with the wording on both sides and rear of the tanker changed to read "Amerada Hess". The "Fuel Oil" decal on the left and the "Gasoline" decal on the right remain but the logos on the cab doors disappeared. This truck was not sold at the stations and was not available to the public but was rather an in-house promotion to employees and distributors to promote the new company name. During 1969 the Hess Oil Company merged with Amerada Petroleum Corp.
