1977 Hess Fuel Oil Tanker

This updated tanker is painted dark green and white with yellow accents. The tanker has working head and tail lights operated by a switch underneath the tanker. A Chrome grill on the cab and bright red wheels enhance this model. A departure from earlier models is the detail on the tires, which are marked "Amerada Hess." Differentiating the 1977 model from the 1978 is the rear decal, a close-up of which you can see below.

Original Price: $2.39 with 600,000 made in Hong Kong. Condition: MIMB
