Named “The First Hess Truck,” this commemorates the old second-hand truck that founder Leon Hess drove to deliver fuel oil to customers back during the Great Depression in 1933. In addition to working lights, it features a detailed interior, doors that open, a moveable hose rolled up on the passenger side. The front windshield is open and there are rear view mirrors on the doors. The company made 1,000,000 of these toys. The actual 1933 truck has been completely restored and is on exhibit today at the Woodbridge, NJ office of the company.
