Had to drive to Town today (Only 200 miles, round trip) & stumbled onto some new, and some new to me HW's.
Found a bunch of the repaint '67 Shelby GT500's (Dark Highland Green), some '53 Cadillac's (Silver Blue) The Edelbrock '57 Chevys, and other assorted stuff. And Luckily, a Bunch of the new issue DeLoreans! :)

The New Ones Included this Bread Box (#13 for 2010):



with a transparent roof:





And this really cool Ambulance I had never seen before:

I can't really tell from the pic, but does the Bread Box drawing represent the actual casting? I guess what I'm asking is if the casting has that triangular window designed into it. Either way, I'd like to get a couple of those.

I picked up the Ambulance Van today ...Pretty cool casting. Packed 1 per
case if you cant locate one yet. Be patient as you will see these a dime a
dozen Im sure as Mattel loves making a billion Cars.

The Answer to both of your questions is yes, yes the drawing is an accurate depiction of the diecast.
Yes, The windscreen is a triangular shape.

I like how the Bread Box has "Even faster Mail Delivery" on it... is it a mail truck, or a bread truck? Interesting to see how many different versions come out... like the combat medic/letter getter truck...

I picked up 2 of the Bread Boxes today. Looking through the large, lightly blue tinted roof panel, you can see a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that is begging to be detailed out, or replaced by a big V8.

I think the term "bread box" was used for the bread delivery trucks similar to the trucks used by parcel services like UPS, FEDEX, and DHL.
