Perfect 80's set. I have a soft spot for anything Shell.

When that driver starts watching the road he's going to notice his wheel's been stolen!

Bare minimum.

There's no even a steering wheel.

Even though according to the database it's a promotional set this looks terrible to me - no steering wheel, no roof, no doors, no headlights and not even the mudguard pieces used!

#6695 (https://brickset.com/sets/6695-1/Tanker-Truck) is a much better tanker truck. Althought it's not a fair comparison due to #6695 having over double the parts.

#6651 (https://brickset.com/sets/6651-1/Mail-Truck) is a better comparison - 7 more parts than #1468 but it looks so, so, so much better!

It looks much more like a 1978 set than a 1987 set...

It's OK that there's no steering wheel because the wheels don't turn anyway...
