1980 Hess Training Van

This van was a bold departure from previous designs. It is a replica of the actual Hess training van used to conduct field training seminars at Hess gasoline stations. It has an operating side door, pop-up TV antenna, working headlights and taillights and for the first time, lighted HESS side logos. This toy training van has been referred to as a "work of art in miniature" and is one of the most popular models. This van is very white; often they are not. It also has the glue marks that are typical of this model year.

Original Price: $3.29 with 600,000 made in Hong Kong. Condition: MIB
