Description for International Harvester Scout 1963

I have a pretty awesome 1963 International Harvester Scout 80. California car through and through - black plate special. I would give this a 9 out of 10 on condition and a 9 out of 10 on drivability. I have grown up collecting Scouts and this is the nicest one I have. This girl doesn't get driven as often as I would like to and it is time to let someone else enjoy it. Not many of these original Scouts left and would like it to go to a good home.

CA until recently brought to San Francisco. The original owner. who mostly just drove it to the gun range. passed away and the title was transferred to his brother's name. I am confident the Scout only has an original 52k miles on it due to notations on the dash board about oil changes that I have not cleaned off (see pictures). as well as the overall condition of the truck. There is no rust on the truck. Some surface rust spots have been cleaned up and there are good close up pictures of these under the mats. I did not repair or paint over anything. I have the original line setting ticket as shown in the photos. It had a dealer add on warn overdrive and also the spot light which is removed but have to go with it. The only things that have been done to it are new clutch slave and master. new brakes. rebuilt carb. new fuel pump and switched out the oil bath air cleaner to an air filter as well as regular maintenance. A newly installed sending unit for the fuel gauge was installed but the gauge doesn't work so it is likely the gauge itself. It starts runs and drives amazingly well and will easily do 70 on the freeway (I regularly take it on the highway). To my knowledge and the brother's knowledge. nothing has ever been rebuilt in it. The tires are new and only have 500 miles on them and are mounted on the original rims. I am fairly certain the spare tire is the original tire which is what was on all 5 rims when I bought it. No hub cabs nor are they listed on the LST. I also have the new spring bushings to install but haven't done it yet. I may install them before this listing ends. It drives really well without any shimmy or shake at. Shifts well and tight and runs really well. There are a few slow leaks in various places which is to be expected from these Scouts. This is a one of a kind. original condition Scout 80 and probably one of the cleanest unrestored Scouts still in existence. The paint is incredibly smooth to the touch with no oxidation at all. There is one small dent on the rear corner as shown in the photos and a few scratches. Windshield wipers and heater both work great. Radio works. Window and windshield seals are original. I recently took the top off and there is no rust on any bolt holdings and the original rubber seals are in tact. Windshield also folds down and latches with ease for your safari look - it gets some ridiculous attention wherever I drive it.
