Description

The 'Vette Van is a Hot Wheels Original Model designed by Larry Wood. The name implies that Larry Wood took the Corvette as a source of inspiration. This can be seen on the front end, with the iconic headlights and even the reversed air scoop on the hood. On the top we can see the classic T-top with its roof panels removed. Coming to the rear end of the model the frenched Corvette taillights catch the eye. With a huge gas tank in the back, this van always got some miles ahead. The engine is mounted behind the front seats, making this a mid-mounted van. Since this diecast model is a Hi-Raker, the rear axles is attached to a plastic insert. This results in a rear axle that can be raised or lowered.

The 'Vette Van is also released as Iron Man, in the 1981 Heroes line .
