Description

For the first time in the Hess Truck series, the 1988 edition offered two toys in one package.  The Hess Truck and Race Car combination featured a trailer truck carrying a friction-powered racecar on the trailer. Racecar could be removed and played with separately. The toy had  working marker lights, headlights, and taillights which were controlled by a switch on the truck. There were two editions that year, 500,000 made in Hong Kong, and 500,000 made in China.  Another first for the 1988 Hess Truck was the addition of the year of issue on the truck’s license plate so it was easier for collectors to identify the model year.

Please note that batteries not included.  Toy carton will show normal shelf wear.
