The Mystery Machine's shape lends itself to be a 1960s era panel van, however conflicting details does not indicate it to be a particular model of that lineage. The vehicle is painted a medium blue with a distinctive horizontal green stripe around the van, adorn with two orange flowers. Each side of the van has a distinctive painted green panel with "THE MYSTERY MACHINE" painted in orange. The front of the van has a spare tire carrier, painted green, with one large orange flower located in the center. Two roof racks protrude from the top of the van to secure further storage, and the van is also equipped with green and orange or yellow and orange flowered wheels or hub caps.
Fred has set many traps in it:
- The glove compartment from the passenger seat, which causes the passenger to be ejected.
Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated
While the gang were in Gatorsburg, the van's engine was stolen. They ended up escaping the town by rolling it out. When the solved the case of the Creeping Creatures, Mr. E had somehow replaced the engine.
After the Evil Entity was sucked into a black hole, it caused a chain reaction which altered reality in which Crystal Cove was not negatively influenced by its corruption. The gang had whole productive lives already built for them and Fred's van had been restored, but was gray, as the Fred in the new universe apparently had no need to paint it.
When the gang received a message from Harlan Ellison telling them he had enrolled them into Miskatonic University, they decided to take a road trip, but not before painting the van back to its original glory.
- The van's license plate number is "Crystal Cove 345-600".
