The 1970 Hess Fire Truck
This bright red fire truck was a replica of the fire engine used at the
Hess refinery in Perth Amboy, N.J..
This 11 inch long pumper truck has a
detachable extending ladder and hoses on either side.
A swiveling water
cannon sits on top. This was easily broken off. No working head and
lights but a rotating emergency light on top of the cab. Finely
Marked "Louis Marx and Company, Inc. on the bottom chromed chassis along
with the date in
Roman Numerals "MCMLXX" (1970). One of the hardest Hess
Trucks to find it is a
cross-collectible with fire truck and other specialty collectors.
The box features pictures of the fire truck pumper and Hess refinery
The box is marked "Hess Oil and Chemical Division, Amerada Hess
In 1971 reissued this same fire truck. Sometime during that year the
Company must have
run out of the silk-screened boxes and substituted a plain white box
with a sticker on
the top that reads "Seasons Greetings". This box is extremely hard
