Hess Toy Trucks
1972 and 1974 Hess Trucks

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

    In 1972 and also in 1974, Hess reissued the 1968 tanker truck. The differences between the
1972-74 and the 1968 model are a slight color variation, the 72-74 is a lighter green. The
 exhaust stack is also shorter on these later models, probably to avoid them breaking off.
 The 1968 and 1969 have square trailer feet and the 1972 and 1974 have round trailer feet.
 The box remains the same except on the 1972-1974 box the end flap reads "Amerada Hess Corporation."
The 1972 and the 1974 are the exact same truck although there is one slight variation of these trucks.
 Catwalk on top of tanker extends to the end on the 1974's. A Caution sticker
 can be found on some 1974's. The original price on the 1972
was $1.69 and in 1974 it was $1.89.  In 1973 Hess did not offer a toy truck most likely
 due to the Arab Oil embargo and high oil prices at the time.
