We’re not sure what Shaggy and Scooby’s Mystery Machine was powered by, but as this listing states, this Mystery Machine-inspired 1968 Chevy Van/GMC HandiVan currently for sale on Craigslist receives its drive from a Cummins diesel powerplant.
The crime fighting gang probably wouldn’t be outrunning very many monsters if their van was powered by this Cummins four, which was rated at a little over 100 horsepower and produced about 265 lb-ft of torque. The seller claims it does 70 mph on the highway no problem with its three-speed gearbox, but it probably takes a fortnight to accelerate to that speed.
The seller is asking $7,000 for this van with the engine in and $4,500 for the body. The crowd over on Jalopnik thinks that’s a bit too much for this GM/Cummins combo and we tend to agree with them. Check out the listing here and let us know what you think it’s worth in the comments below.
