Description for International Harvester Scout 1971

I understand there are bidders who are unable to inspect the vehicle in person so I do my best to mention items needing attention so that you are aware upon taking ownership. Although I list in good faith, it is impossible to describe all details of a vehicle. So I encourage you to look at the pictures on a large screen device and be sure to ask any questions you may have.

This 1971 "model 810" Scout II is a great platform for your project. It runs, drives, and stops. This scout has a 345ci V8, it has a T-18 transmission, and it's 4x4. The frame is solid. The interior is in above average shape for a scout of this age. It appears that this scout was repainted at some point and the paint still has gloss to it. The engine runs pretty good and oil pressure is good. The Holley 2bbl carb has been rebuilt and there is a new starter solenoid installed. It has power steering and a new Moog steering stabilizer has been installed. It has a newer alternator installed. The tires are like new and centerline type wheels. All glass is in good shape. Interior lights come on when doors open. Voltmeter, oil pressure gage, speedo all work The driver's side floorboards have been replaced. The line set ticket, original warranty registration, and owners manual will be included.
This is an 810 model. It is the earliest of the 1971 Scout II. It has the 810 decals in the push button glove-box. It has the stainless side body trim, that is in super good condition. It has the throttle knob that functions well. The Vin tag is mounted on the cowl as seen in pictures. You may wish to research the 810 model. The scout has a luggage rack, the rack and rails are in very good condition. The windshield wipers and washer work well. The spare tire and cover are present in the rear. It still has the perforated headliner. Visors are in good shape.

The scout has some typical scout rust. There is rust in the lower windshield frame, in the front parts of the front inner fenders, in the front passenger body mount area, and in the rear floor area as pictured. There is bubbling in the fender lips and rockers and door bottoms. There is other minor bubbling elsewhere. Please look at pictures. I am including a solid windshield frame for a a replacement. The exhaust manifolds are rusted and will need replaced. The exhaust manifold gaskets are failing so the engine has a good exhaust leak chop sound to it. The brakes work ok, but I'd suggest they be gone through just to be safe. The headlights need wiring. They were tied into a snow plow harness that was removed. Fuel level gage doesn't work. There is a dent in the tailgate. Parking brake does not function. It does have a few minor leaks, but nothing excessive. I do not have a key for the door locks.

If you are in the market for a scout and looking for a solid platform for restoration or resto-mod this one is probably for you. Despite it's typical scout flaws, it's got an awful lot going for it. These are gaining popularity and demand is quickly increasing. Putting it frankly, you really can't go wrong if you are looking for a scout to put some work into.
