Custom Dodge B 300 Van
Debut Series Auto City
Produced 1994 - 1998
Number 16979
Custom Van Aqua


Description

Based on a Dodge B 300 Van.(A Camper variation called the "Sportsman") Although Mattel aquired Corgi in 1989, models never mixed until 1996 when there were several corgi casting found in the Hot Wheels line-up. This was quite short lived though. Although similar in appearence to Custom '77 Dodge Van (but with a raised roofline to give slightly more interior space as well as a motorsport-styled front air dam), this model is a former Corgi casting, and they are in fact 2 different cars. Cast into the back of this particular van is a ladder and a spare wheel. This casting replicates a camper variation of the Dodge Vans of the 1970s and 1980s that were available to buyers in North America.
