This is the
2006 Hess Special Edition Truck with 2 Racers.
On May 9, 2006 New
York Stock Exchange members received these trucks to celebrate Amerada
Hess changing it's name to Hess Corporation. The tanker truck is the first
to have the words "Hess Corporation" on the side. One race car has
"HES" on one side and
"AHC" on the other, being
the NYSE Abbreviations for the company on the ticker trading board. Only
3,000 were made none of which were released to the general
public, making this a hard to find collectible item. All cardboard
inserts and battery card are in the box. There was also another truck
made to celebrate this very special occasion and that was a Chromed
version of the First Truck used by Leon Hess when he started the
company. There were Less than 100 of the Special Chrome Mini Hess
Truck made and they were Given to Hess Corporations Top VIP's to
commemorate this event.
This is and will continue to be one of the very rare Hess Trucks
ever made to date, a true must have for the discerning collector. If you
pair this truck up with the other truck made for this event you will
have the first Pair of Hess Trucks made to mark a Significant date in
the Hess Corporation's History. This is the First time Hess has has 2
separate trucks made for a special occasion making the Pair of trucks a
Very Rare Item to have.
