Looking through the Great Book of Corgi this Van was everywhere in the late seventies & eighties. It was Superman's van, Charlie's Angels' van and the best of all it came as a Radio Luxembourg van with a real radio in the back. Without counting there must have been almost as many versions of the Chevy panel van as there was of the old Bedford CA.

One of a range of Corgi Chevvy vans used as a background for lots of cool (at the time) designs and character merchandise. This is a custom van with a play area in the back. It was released as part of a group of four in January 1978, four different colours (yellow, white, pink (Charlie's Angels) & black) each with its own set of decals on the sides. Total sales for the four versions were about 300,000 which was not fantastic, or 'vantastic' as the decals read on the black version. Vanatic was deleted after one year in the range, there are no listed variations.
