Model: Matchbox 4×4 Chevy Van
Line: 2006 Superfast
Where to get it: 2006 Matchbox Superfast 4×4 Chevy Van on eBay
Why it’s in the collection: The 4×4 Chevy Van has been around for a very long time. Matchbox revamped it for the 2006 Superfast line before converting the tool into a non-4×4 version. If I remember correctly, this was the last 4×4. And it is the only 4×4 Chevy Van I have. It seemed the perfect one to have, because it sports the best deco. Matchbox-themed, with a little vintage flare. It will never look better.

I think some of the early ones look great too, but this one is definitely a keeper.
I have a pearlwhite version with the Matchbox logo on it. Great wheels and like it better than this one. Happy to have it!
I thought for sure we were going to get a picture of this with the matching Vantom.
And Dave Tilley has got us covered! Thank you, Dave, for posting a picture of them together.
Generally speaking, I don’t like the 4X4 version of the Chevy Van, but I agree that this is the one to have. A classic deco, and full tampos really lift this casting (so to speak 😉 ) to a different level. I’d have picked this up if I had been able to find one on the pegs.
Vans are cool… I’d love to someday see a panel dajiban with watanabe-style real riders.
