In addition to this regular Hess truck list, from 1998 to 2014 the Hess oil company also issued some Miniature Hess toy trucks in the spring season. There have also been some special edition Hess trucks that have been distributed or gifted by Hess company over the years to commemorate a special occasion for the Hess company. These special Hess toy trucks had some modifications or variations to regular Hess toy trucks. How many special Hess toy truck models exists exactly is unclear. These special Hess trucks generally command a higher price value as a collectors item.

Hess trucks were born in 1960’s as a result of a marketing practice of gas stations. Back then gas stations used try to encourage people to come to their gas station by offering a souvenir or gift with their fuel purchase. These gift items used to include glassware, mugs, and die-cast toy trucks. The founder of Hess oil company back then decided to used this marketing practice to promote his newly opened chain of Hess gas stations. Hess improved on the practiced and started selling a very “high quality toy” at a affordable price to everyone.

Most of the Hess trucks are exact replica toy vehicle models of the Hess company vehicle fleet. But in 1987 Hess made some changes to the toy trucks they released. Since then Hess have also released some Hess trucks that include some non-fleet vehicles. The same year Hess also introduced a the green and white color scheme you see in Hess toy trucks since then.

Hess oil company has been issuing these high quality plastic toy vehicles bearing the Hess brand name almost every year since 1964. Each Hess truck came in a colorful box and is battery powered with a array of realistic lights, horns and sounds. Thus began a great half-century old holiday tradition and a new collectible hobby.
