Vehicle History[edit | edit source]

The Ice Cream Van is a MBX Originals casting that debuted for the 2009 mainline. The casting has a number of MB778 and was originally produced from 2009 to 2013 when it was discontinued.

It returned in 2019, retooled for easier assembly. The former metal cab and plastic body was merged to become fully plastic. It has resumed production ever since.
