The Hot Wheels Bread Box casting was first released as part of the 2010 New Models Series. It was first released in white and was succeeded by red and blue colorways. It was designed by Hot Wheels Designer Jun Imai and is modeled after the Jeep FJ-3 Fleetvan.
While the postal service got the nod in the first release of this quirky casting, the Bread Box has featured all kinds of graphics. On its paneled sides, it has featured graphics for postal delivery, courier services and even a painting company, in addition to serving as a billboard for numerous Pop Culture/Nostalgic brands. One would think with the name “Bread Box” it would have had a version with some sort of bread deco, but it has not yet. Collectors have requested for this toaster on wheels to be painted up as a Wonder Bread delivery truck, but since its initial release this request has not come into fruition. Custom Bread Boxes with the Wonder Bread scheme have sold on the secondary market for as much as $15 when done nicely.
The Hot Wheels Bread Box, a collector favorite already, will almost surely be released in some very nice schemes in the future. Some sort of bread company, automotive parts delivery and even a beach-side taco truck are all possibilities for future releases of this commercial truck. This collector, for one, is very excited to see what is yet to come!
