This bright red fire truck was a replica of the fire engine used at the Hess refinery in Perth Amboy, N.J.. This 11 inch long pumper truck has a detachable extending ladder and hoses on either side. A swiveling water cannon sits on top. This was easily broken off. No working head and tail lights but a rotating emergency light on top of the cab. Finely detailed. Marked "Louis Marx and Company, Inc. on the bottom chromed chassis along with the date in Roman Numerals "MCMLXX" (1970). One of the hardest Hess Trucks to find it is a popular cross-collectible with fire truck and other specialty collectors. The box features pictures of the fire truck pumper and Hess refinery scene. The box is marked "Hess Oil and Chemical Division, Amerada Hess Corporation. In 1971 reissued this same fire truck. Sometime during that year the Company must have run out of the silk-screened boxes and substituted a plain white box with a sticker on the top that reads "Seasons Greetings". This box is extremely hard to find. Original Price: $1.69 - 300,000 made
