1968 Hess Tanker Truck

This year brought back the 1967 Hess Tanker Truck. The only difference is that the "Red Velvet Box" was replaced with a white bottom box, and the Marx Toy company's logo now appeared on the battery cover. The box for this year reflects company offices located in Perth Amboy, NJ. You can tell that this is a 1968 because of the words "Perth Amboy" on the box. The 1969 truck has the words "Woodbridge, N.J.".
