Many of you may not have known that the cartoon van actually had a real life counterpart. Well it did, and it came from Dodge.

A100 VAN AD

The A100 series van was produced from 1964-1970 by Dodge. They also produced a L-Series truck based off the van. It either came with a V-8 or a V-6 and had the option of a 3 speed automatic transmission or a manual version. The engine was mounted between the driver and passenger.
