Own a piece of our transit history with this model replica of our retro “New Look” buses. The "New Look" Bus was the face of North American public transit in the latter half of the 20th century, with over 45,000 built between 1959 and 1986.  Nicknamed “Fishbowls” for their unique windshield design, they were one of the most iconic transit buses made in North America, and a beloved vehicle in Metro Vancouver.

These models are an exact 1/87 HO scale. The manufacturer, Rapido Trains, performed a 3D scan of a preserved "New Look" bus to guarantee 100% authenticity from tires to roof. Size: 101mm L x 35mm H x 28mm w (4" x 1.39" x 1.1")
