Everything about this van is impeccable.
Anyone who’s watched the classic Scooby Doo cartoons while eating cereal on Saturday morning, or using their modern streaming service of choice, recognizes the van the crime-solving kids and their dog used to get around. With a complete distinct design, you literally can’t mistake it for anything else. This is what makes the 1969 Z Movie Car Scooby Doo Mystery Machine so wonderful, because it replicates the cartoon van’s all-around looks incredibly well.
Drive this van anywhere and you’ll be getting plenty of looks, friendly honks, and throngs on strangers gathering around to take their picture with an automotive legend. To achieve this look, a 1969 GMC Handyman 1500 was used. That telltale custom green and medium blue paint job, with the orange logo and flowers completes the exterior look to perfection. It’s like seeing a celebrity in the flesh, because you don’t expect the Mystery Machine to appear in real life.

Adding further to the value of this customized van is the interior, which continues the same color scheme as the exterior. That includes two-tone upholstery for the seats, two-tone walls, a green headliner, plus an epic orange flower rug over the blue carpet in the rear. Not only is the interior fun to look at, it’s comfortable to spend some time inside. With seating for up to five, you can bring along the whole gang to be those pesky kids who mess up the bad guys’ plans.
You’re simply not going to run across another 1969 GMC Handyman 1500 like this one, and probably not another van customized exactly the same ways. It’s a tremendous addition to any garage and is a super fun vehicle to take literally anywhere. Thank to Ideal Classic Cars, you have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to own the most famous crime-fighting van in history.
