1988 Hess Toy Truck & Racer
(Gold Trim)

This Toy Truck and Racer features, for the first time, two toys in one - a trailer truck with a friction-powered race car on the rear. This year is also the very first time that the date was added to the license plate, making it easier for customers to identify the truck model by year. This particular truck has gold chrome on the cab. You can see the color in the close-up shot of the grill below. As an added bonus, only 10% of these trucks were made in China instead of Hong Kong, and this one is one of the 10%. The gold chrome is a manufacturing defect rather than a 'special' edition truck.

Original Price: $6.95 with 1,000,000 made in China. Condition: MIMB
