This 1978 International Scout II is an awesome frame-off restored vehicle with new metal where needed all professionally done. It looks fantastic and the interior floors were also all painted when they had the body off while being restored. This particular Scout came out of Colorado and was owned by a gentlemen who used it to bid jobs for his Forestry Company back in the day. He used it primarily in the mountains where his bigger truck could not go as easily. When it was not used for that it did not get used and the 2 Owners of this vehicle claim the miles are original. I do not have paperwork to confirm this, but I cannot dispute it either. The Restoration was done in the last couple of years and still looks excellent!
The body on this Scout is so nice and the paint is gorgeous and straight. It was repainted the original color of Omaha Orange and the body was removed to repair any corrosion and everything was completely painted when finished including the inside of the floors and the underside. The interior is excellent!!! Front and rear seats were recovered and there was also new Carpet added. Dash looks to be original and is in good shape. The engine is believed to be the original 304 V8. When the Scout was restored they obviously pulled the engine and new gaskets were installed. The engine was not rebuilt because there was no need to be rebuild it. It had good compression and ran excellent...it still does. The Transmission is the 727 Automatic and it shifts great. It has Dana 44 Axles front and rear with 3.54 Gears. It is a very mechanically sound truck.
This Scout runs and drives very nice.....just as a stock Scout should. All lights, blinkers, horn and wipers are working. This is an awesome Scout II for someone to drive and enjoy.
