GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this very clean, 1962 International Scout 80 4X4 for consideration. The Scout 80 is the original Scout beginning production in 1960 and succeeded by the Scout 800 in 1965. The original Scout 80 are identifiable by removable sliding side windows available through early 1962, a fold-down windshield, vacuum windshield wipers mounted to the top on the windshield and an IH logo in the central of the grille. The Scout 80 is powered by a extremely reliable and somewhat primitive 152 four-cylinder engine, 3 speed manual transmission and Internationals rock solid 4 wheel drive system The only other 4-wheel drive recreational vehicle offered at that time was a Jeep. 1962 was the second model year Scouts were offered. The Scouts are known for their ability to go anywhere and have high durability. They are a key part of automotive history as they are considered the first SUV.
The 1962 Scout 80 offered here came to us from Texas, where it was restored and cared for. It is powered by its 4 cylinder engine paired with a manual transmission. The Scout has new battery cables, new battery, alternator, starter, coil, distributor cap, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new 2 barrel carburetor, radiator, fuel pump, front and rear shocks. The Scout runs and operates as it should.
Classic 4X4's have become very popular as of late and first generation Scouts are highly sought after around the glove. Their classic Americana design, utility and go anywhere attitude keep them on the “A” list of collectors and 4X4 enthusiasts alike.
