The third year the company issued a tanker ship instead of a truck. This detailed replica of the real Hess Voyager that was launched in 1962 features working port, starboard, bow, and stern lights.  A switch mounted on the deck of the tanker controlled these red and green lights. Remarkable detail is seen in the delicate anchors, deck features, flag, and propellers on the toy.  Only 150,000 were manufactured. These toys are extremely rare and difficult to find complete with all of the parts and it’s original box.
