This article concerns the 2000 ambulance casting, first issued in 2001. You may be looking for a different ambulance casting.
- The Ambulance (2000) is a fantasy ambulance, featuring opening rear doors. A patient (loaded backwards) is visible in the rear compartment, making this the first (and so far only) ambulance casting featuring a molded-in-place patient. The casting reflects the short-lived early 21st century shift away from realism that marked many of the then-introduced Matchbox models. When the company direction changed again, this casting was retired in favor of the more realistic Ambulance (2005).
The Ambulance (2000) has come out in the following versions:
