First appearance


Captain America travelled in a custom-built Chevrolet van whose nondescript outward appearance allows him to travel incognito. The van was outfitted by the Wakanda Design Group, the same company which serviced the Avengers' quinjets and automobiles. The van's interior contained a mount for the Captain's motorcycle and a built-in cot for sleeping. Built into the engine housing was a computer interface cradle designed to work in conjunction with Captain America's briefcase modem-computer system to enable him to receive messages from his hotline service.

Alternate Realities

In Earth-600043, Captain America travels in an apparently common van that holds his motorcycle in the back. Captain America can leave the van riding the bike.[1]. This van was seen in the 1979 movie Captain America II: Death Too Soon, seven years before its counterpart appeared in the mainstream Marvel Universe.
