Description for International Harvester Scout 1961

For sale is a 1961 IH Scout. I bought this on ebay about 5 years and the seller claimed it ran great. I have since sunk about 5k into it and I can assure you now that it starts right up and runs great. For much of the first two years of ownership it sat because it didn't run and now that I've gotten it running I need to make room for other toys.
I believe I am the third owner and to my knowledge the 57,000 miles are accurate. I bought it from California and I've never exposed it to rain or snow, but it came to me with studded snow tires and I've driven it so little that I've never changed them.
I have put a chunk of money in this and can provide almost all receipts. I can also provide additional photos if you have specific requests. I've tried to show the good and the bad. It is a great little truck, but it is 55+ years old so it's not perfect. Minimal surface rust. Not a great paint job up close. I tried to take a photo of a couple scratches and the little bit of rust on the wheel well and rear bumper. The last photo is for the winch control, I believe, and the knob has broken off.
I removed the window frames and windows because the windows are plexiglass. I will include them along with an owner's manual.
Feel free to ask any questions.

***UPDATE 4/30*** Sorry, I forgot to mention that there is a very small oil leak. It sat for the better part of the last year and there is a stain on a piece of cardboard underneath it that is about as big around as a coffee can. I think it may just be a seal. I also am not sure if the gas gauge works. I will try to fuel it up and confirm and update again.
