  • Engine starts and runs smoothly
  • 345 Engine is from a 1974 Scout II Traveler – unsure how many miles on it, but does not burn oil

It is up to the buyer to do their due diligence prior to purchasing this Scout. It will not take much work to make it a daily driver again, however, I would not recommend the buyer drive the vehicle home in its current condition. It is up to the buyer to pick up the Scout which is located in Reno, Nevada. The seller will not deliver.

Buyer must arrange for pick up within two weeks of winning the auction.
