2004 Hess Sport Utility Vehicle and Motorcycles
Hess celebrated the 40th anniversary of the HESS Toy Truck with an SUV and Two Motorcycles
The truck details include chrome bumpers, grille and running boards, a sunroof, all terrain tires, and rear spoiler.
A push button on the rear roof releases the tailgate, which folds down to become a ramp for the sport motorcycles inside.
Each motorcycle is well balanced, with realistic action rollability, has working lights activated by a switch on the right handlebar, and a friction motor.
Hess Mini Truck
2004 Hess Miniature Tanker Truck:
The 7th miniature in the series, a replica of the 1964 Hess Tanker Truck, marks the 40th Anniversary of the Hess Toy Truck. It features working head, tail and running lights, a fill port on the top of the tanker, and a removable hose. This year's model is attached to its display base through a little locking knob underneath, allowing easy on/off — the first time this mechanism has been used on the miniature series.
