It’s not a Jeep and it’s not a Bronco. It’s rarer, but somehow not astronomical in its asking price. Up for bid now is this 1970 International Harvester Scout 800 with all the restoration work already done for you. Both carburetor and oil pump have been rebuilt, the electrical was checked, and the fuel system was refreshed a couple years back. The army green paint job was applied back in 2013 and new custom upholstery went on the front bucket seats in a rich tobacco and quilted black leather.
The V8 engine is paired to a four-speed manual transmission with 4-by-4 capabilities engaged manually via locking hubs on the front axle. It was upgraded with power-steering and a new wood steering wheel for easier handling of the big 33-inch Thunderer mud-terrain tires and 15-inch Eagle Alloy wheels.
Receipts and records are included in the sale, along with a clean Oregon title. Even though the ODO (obviously) incorrectly reads 100 miles, the amount of upgrades and restoration are likely to make this a pretty reliable buy. During the 20 years (1960 to 1980) the Scouts were in production, just a half million were made. Bid well and this one could be yours.
