Description for International Harvester Scout 1976

’76, XLC model, was my daily drive until transmission went out in forward direction; inches along but that’s it. Reverse is fine. 304 engine, auto transmission; engine ran great. Had trouble with transfer box not wanting to stay in Hi-4; would pop out and I would have to hold it in gear. Body in reasonably good condition; some rust in usual areas: quarter panels, over rear wheels, parts of floor boards. Bucket seats, folding rear seat, sliding rear windows, manual locking hubs, 48” hi-jack, approx. 6 months on Rancho RS9000 shocks. Repair manual, parts list, spare parts. This vehicle should pass inspection. Purchased out of Denver, CO.

’78, Rallye model, was purchased to swap out transmission. Runs very strong with a 345 engine, automatic transmission, transfer case works great as well (see video). IH automatic locking hubs. Also, has air conditioning system but is not connected. See it running: go to YouTube and enter "scout ii", then search down for "78 IH Scout II, Rallye Model"; its the gold one. Purchased out of Deming, NM.

My intent was to swap out the transmission and transfer case from the ’78 to the ’76. After getting the ’78 started, I realized swapping the engine-transmission-transfer case assembly out would be the thing to do because the 345 is so much more powerful! This gives you a daily driver if so desired after the swap and a parts vehicle for future repairs. I was going to do the swap and sell for $4500 so you save for doing the swap yourself. I also have some spare parts: starter, heater controls, gauges, more.
