What makes this truck so unique was the new design or box trailer shape. This was the first of the Hess box trailer series. And one of the neat new features was the three miniature sized oil barrels, which are removable. Oddly these oil barrels are not marked, for some real Hess decided not to label them, which would have been a great touch similar to the red funnel that bears the Hess
