1980 Hess Training Van SKU#808
Hess toured around to gasoline stations conducting field training in a GMC Motor Home. The 1980 Hess Training Van was a replica of the actual vehicle the company was using at the time in its tours. This marks the first major departure for the Hess Toy series from the traditional fuel trucks and fire engines featured up until this point. The delicate detail on this toy is remarkable and features a pop up TV antenna, side door that opens, working headlights and taillights, and detailed chrome features such as side mirrors and windshield wipers. Another unique feature was the lighted Hess side logos, a first for the Hess Truck Series. Only 600,000 training vans were manufactured.
