What makes this truck so unique was the new design or box trailer shape but this is the second run of the box trailer truck by Hess
Essentially this is a re-issue of the 1975 Hess box trailer truck
with one minor change. One of the neat new features was the three miniature sized oil barrels, but Hess added the Hess logo decals to the barrels, which was missing on the 1975 Hess truck. This small attention to detail is consistent with the red funnel Hess logo decal on the 1964 classic tank truck. There is a chrome exhaust pipe on the front cab, which was not offered on the 1975 box trailer truck. And interestingly this was the first year for the price of the truck to rise into the $2 range. The original retail on this was $2.29 with a production of 500,000 trucks. The bottom of the trailer bed is colored in solid yellow.
