The cast wandered sadly through the Mystery Machine; an extravagant green and teal van covered in orange flowers. Even the rims are not spared from this gentle makeover. But many fans are still trying to figure out exactly what kind of panel van the original machine is. According to a piece of Hagerty in October 2021, it was widely speculated that the original vehicle could be either a “mid-1960s Chevrolet G-Body minivan or a Dodge A100”, although Hagerty also noted that the minivan had changed significantly over the over time.
Moving from one channel to another, the show has naturally reinvented itself to meet the tastes of its audience, which has also matured and evolved over time, following the course of several generations. Considering how much time has passed since the original series aired, it makes sense that the make and model of the Mystery Machine van has also changed quite significantly. Automatic week reported that the vehicle used in the 2002 movie “Scooby-Doo” was actually a 1972 Bedford CF, but that’s not all. Velocars came with a look back at how the Mystery Machine has changed over time, and it looks like even the replicas of the mystery vehicle have adjusted their own design layouts to reflect the changes made throughout the series. Apparently, the aforementioned 1972 Bedford CF is still in storage at the Volo Auto Museum.
