    The Hess toy truck that started it all was 1964-65’s Hess Tanker Trailer, an authentically-styled miniature of the real deal. It featured battery-powered head and tail lights and a cargo tank that could be filled with water. An original can fetch four figures! ...A Christmas Gift Tradition in our Family since 1969 !!!
