To celebrate the USA Bicentennial in 1976, the Chicago Transit Authority painted their elevated train cars and buses in red, white and blue stripes as shown on this model GM Fishbowl bus.

The GMC New Look Transit Coach (nicknamed "Fishbowl" for its six-piece rounded windshield) was introduced in 1959. U.S. production ceased in 1977, when it was replaced by the RTS bus. 44,484 new look buses were built over the production lifespan, of which 33,413 were built in the U.S. and 11,071 in Canada, where production continued until 1986. The New Look's production figures and long service career made it the iconic North American transit bus.

Corgi is a leading manufacturer of high quality, pre-built, diecast models. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using the specifications of the original vehicle. Corgi models are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
