This beautiful 1972 International Scout II came out of Arizona and is a very fine example of a Scout that looks to have all of its original metals and floors. From Arizona it went to Illinois where it was restored 3-4 years ago and we have a lot of receipts for the restoration including almost $10,000 in mechanical receipts. They did and excellent job on the restoration and this Scout still looks amazing!
The body is extremely clean and straight, and as stated before, the metal looks to be original. The floors are fantastic and the paint looks so nice...very straight and shiny. All of the gaps and panels line up really nice and they added the Rally Decals after it was painted. We found no signs of rust on the body, floors, or frame and only some minor surface rust on some of the underside. The underside was painted when it was restored, but it was for cosmetic purposes only as the undercarriage was super clean. There was no rust in the typical Scout locations and everything was taken apart when it was painted. They also redid the Interior when it was restored and that includes removing the interior, gauges, dash and adding carpet in the rear and a new rubber mat in the front. They also added Dynomat under the front mat for a quieter ride. The seats were reupholstered and the original rear plastics are all there.
This Scout not only shines cosmetically, but also mechanically. It has a completely rebuilt 345 V8 that was done right (have receipt) and it runs excellent. Everything on the engine was rebuilt or replaced including all accessories, ignition system, and carb. They added nice dual exhaust and it sounds great (see video). Transmission is a rebuilt 727 Automatic Transmission (have receipt) and Transfer Case is a Dana 20 also rebuilt (have receipt). All new U joints, Ball Joints, Brakes. It does have Power Steering and Power Brakes. Both axles were also gone through and they added a 2 1/2 inch Spring Lift. It has factory Sway Bars front and rear and a new set of 31 Inch BFG All Terrains.
Overall this is a gorgeous Scout that runs and drives fantastic! There was a lot of money spent on this rig to make sure it ran and drove excellent and also to make sure everything was working. We hand pick each vehicle, drive it, inspect it, and make sure it is ready for you to enjoy! We drive what we sell so that we can give you a first hand and accurate report on how the vehicle runs and drives.
