WOW! HIGHLY DETAILED BUILD! REBUILT 318 V8, AUTO, A/C FRONT & REAR! ALL PAINT!

Zoinks! Probably the world's most recognizable vintage van, the Mystery Machine holds a place in the heart of almost every American that's watched television from 1969 until today. A blank check and a very straight and solid 1966 Dodge A100 Panel Van is where this Scooby-Doo dream started, and the absolutely gorgeous creation before us is the ultimate result. Featuring a custom paint job and matching custom interior that would make Hannah-Barbara proud, with power coming from a freshly built 318 V8 and automatic drivetrain, all this Mystery Machine needs now is a talking Great Dane and his four meddling friends.

Though there's no official consensus, most people agree that the Mystery Machine from the original Scooby-Doo cartoons (1969-1976) was in fact a 1964-66 Dodge A100 Panel Van, just like this final-year 1966 model. Sure, the various Scooby films that have since been released utilized Chevy G-10s and Ford Econolines, but those movies were dreadful and it's better to pretend they never existed. The original mystery bustin', bad guy unmaskin', and Scooby-Snack munchin' animated series was the gold standard, and this custom build is about as faithful to those original drawings as ...

WOW! HIGHLY DETAILED BUILD! REBUILT 318 V8, AUTO, A/C FRONT & REAR! ALL PAINT!

Zoinks! Probably the world's most recognizable vintage van, the Mystery Machine holds a place in the heart of almost every American that's watched television from 1969 until today. A blank check and a very straight and solid 1966 Dodge A100 Panel Van is where this Scooby-Doo dream started, and the absolutely gorgeous creation before us is the ultimate result. Featuring a custom paint job and matching custom interior that would make Hannah-Barbara proud, with power coming from a freshly built 318 V8 and automatic drivetrain, all this Mystery Machine needs now is a talking Great Dane and his four meddling friends.

Though there's no official consensus, most people agree that the Mystery Machine from the original Scooby-Doo cartoons (1969-1976) was in fact a 1964-66 Dodge A100 Panel Van, just like this final-year 1966 model. Sure, the various Scooby films that have since been released utilized Chevy G-10s and Ford Econolines, but those movies were dreadful and it's better to pretend they never existed. The original mystery bustin', bad guy unmaskin', and Scooby-Snack munchin' animated series was the gold standard, and this custom build is about as faithful to those original drawings as you can get. Line up our pictures next to the cartoon rendering, and you'll see just how spot-on this build really is. The COE (cab-over-engine) design, short wheelbase (90-inches), and panel wagon bodystyle (specifically with 2-doors up front and barndoors in the cargo area) add up to the right dimensions, although picking out the correct van to start the build was just the beginning of this fantastic voyage. Next came the wild paint, and WOW, they really nailed it. And yes, that's all paint, not a vinyl wrap, and those illustrations aren't decals. From the light blue base to the lime green accents and even the orange '60s-era flowers and cartoon script – it was all laid down by professionals to a very high standard. Seriously, you'd be hard-pressed to find many imperfections in both the paint and body, which is not typically the case with 'theme' builds. The bumpers were painted light purple, the wheel covers are adorned with flowers (including the front-mounted "spare"), the back windows were tinted with Shaggy and Scooby, and even the door handle back there got the cartoon treatment. What would Scooby-Doo? Ride like a king in this van.

The party continues inside, where the custom work is wall-to-wall. Let's start with the seats: two-tone buckets up front and a bespoke wrap-around bench in the rear, all wrapped in brand new light blue and light green upholstery that matches the exterior. The door panels, all the interior walls, and even the headliner were covered with matching two-tone panels, and custom murals feature our favorite crime-solving gang on one side, and a spooky g-g-g-g-g-ghost on the other. Check out the 'Shaggy' carpet, most of which is protected with dealership plastics, the engine cover that was painted to match the theme and acts as a wide center console between the front seats, and the original steel dash that's beautifully finished in the same two-tone light blue and light green color combination found throughout the cabin. Factory gauges are still in place beyond the upright original steering wheel, as is the unique automatic transmission shifter mounted on the dash, and a trio of Equus aftermarket units were mounted on the engine cover to keep a closer eye on the rebuilt block. That remote control is for the LED light system that was installed throughout the cabin, and when all those purple lights are all on, the Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo is pumping tunes through the upgraded speakers, and the Vintage Air A/C system is blowing ice cold air (with vents in the front and rear), this Mystery Machine is a very comfortable chill spot. There's plenty of room to stretch out, put those Scooby-Doo pillows to good use, and test the limits of that exhaust fan in the roof, if you catch my drift. Everything is new, looks great, and was built to last.

Powering this shaggin' wagon is a freshly built 318 V8, a huge upgrade over the sluggish 273 V8 this A100 was born with. Topped with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, a polished aluminum intake, and a new alternator and distributor set-up, the feisty small block fires to life with ease, idles smoothly, and has plenty of power to speed this funky van away from the outstretched hands of evil doers. And even though the engine is hidden under the cover and out of sight, they still painted the block and valve covers Corporate Blue and topped it with a chrome air cleaner, so it can be shown off with pride. A freshly rebuilt A904 3-speed automatic transmission is the 318's perfect dance partner, and this van has an amazing soundtrack thanks to the upgraded Thrush dual exhaust system underneath. Speaking of underneath, the undercarriage is incredibly solid and was fully detailed and covered with black undercoating that looks great and will wear like iron for years. Flower hubcaps finish the look perfectly, and they're wrapped with 205/60/15 radials that soften the ride and have plenty of tread left.

Offered with a stack of build receipts that spell out some of the thousands upon thousands of dollars that went into this build, so you can rest assured knowing this Mystery Machine is fully sorted and turn-key ready. We've never seen a 'theme' build completed to such a high level, and we doubt we ever will again. Call today!
