The Hess Truck’s back and its better – and speedier – than ever!
A winner of the prestigious Oppenheim Toy Portfolio’s Platinum Best Toy Award and Toy Insider’s Top Holiday Toy Award, the 2022 Flatbed Truck with Hot Rods is an action-packed, 3-in-1 retro-design racing team, with 42 total lights and 4 realistic sounds!
The elongated, twin-axle Flatbed Truck is a vintage-style transport carrier, inspired by the original ‘First Hess Truck’ driven by Company founder Leon Hess in 1933.
Designed in solid white with bold green fenders, body side striping and contrasting bed floor, the truck is accented with gleaming chrome details, including finely detailed embossed front grille, bumpers, light housings, fuel tanks, and exhaust pipes.
The cab features 4 top-mounted buttons that activate 3 realistic sounds (truck ignition, truck horn, and hot rod racing action) and lights in flashing mode.
A switch under the chassis will turn on the allows the 24 brilliant lights to remain on in either flashing or steady mode.
The Flatbed conceals a handy useful pull-out ramp with slide-out activated hydraulic sound for easy loading and unloading on race day!
The pair of classic-coupe Hot Rods, one red and one green, have cutaway front ends with exposed sparkling-chrome supercharged-style engines.
White racing stripes and colorful flaming body side graphics complete the sizzling style.
Built for speed and traction, with skinny front and wide rear racing tires, each sports a mighty pullback motor that revs up and propels them down the drag strip in either flat or wheelie position!
Each Hot Rod has 9 bright lights that operate in steady mode.
