1987 Hess Toy Truck Bank with Barrels by Hess. $59.99. HESS'S CHRISTMAS TRUCK FOR 1987 THAT NOT ONLY HAS WORKING HEAD AND TAIL LIGHTS BUT ALSO SERVES AS A BANK,AND IS THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL VERSION OFFERED AT THE TIME!
Collecting Hess toy trucks is a holiday tradition that many kids (and big kids) continue year after year, eventually amassing quite a collection! This ad from 1964 is for the first Hess Truck, a tanker trailer. Seems like a real bargain at $1.99, especially considering collectors will now pay four figures for the original!
