LESS THAN 100 MI ON BUILD, EXCELLENT PAINT & BODY, CUSTOM INTERIOR & SOUND, HTOP
You want an International Scout II because it looks tougher, last longer, and is less common that just about any other capable 4x4. Now take that up an extra notch with this freshly built custom creation.
The Scout took the industrial strength of International Harvester and put it in a consumer-sized utility vehicle. So it is the perfect canvas to create a custom-built off-roader like this one. The Scout was in production for nearly two decades, but 1972 was the right year to choose for a full restoration like this. It was the first full year for the second-generation Scout, which features horizontal bar grille that was only available for a short time. This helps highlight this 4x4's blocky stance. Plus, it has been custom painted so the grille can prepare people for the unique green and black paint/graphics package that runs along this entire Scout setting it off nicely. Classic American vehicles of this era are usually about chrome, but not here. This bad boy is no Boy Scout, and it has a very modern and fierce de-chromed look that trades shine for a sealed protestant on the door mirrors and bumpers. You have heard the phrase, black is the new chrome. Keen eyes will notice that the custom front bumper not only has LED lighting, but there also is a welded tow hitch. That's proof this one was built to be the kind of truck that can pull its friends out of the mud if you choose to.
There is an included hard top, but this 4x4 will likely spend most of its time open to the world. Thus, the brand new interior matches the exterior paint scheme, including custom bucket seats. This Scout is about being a serious off-roader, and so special precautions were taken to make sure there was added usability. The rugged painted surfaces inside the truck not only provide grip if people or cargo get wet, but also it is a liner that seals the floors and sides. This means cleaning up a dirty day just requires spraying down the interior with the same garden hose you used to clean the exterior. Versatility doesn't mean missing out on comforts. There's an AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo connected to custom speakers w/subwoofer. All of this is marine grade, so there's no conflict when things get wet, and a reserve battery means you can keep the tunes cranked up at the campsite. Toping this truck off, literally, is the added safety of a six-point roll cage.
Under the hood is the optional 258 cubic-inch six-cylinder motor. It's so fresh that the engine has less than 100 miles since it was rebuilt. The interesting thing about this motor is that it's closely related to the ones found in the Scout's main competitor, the Jeep. Except in this case, the cold air intake, electric fan, and other upgrades means this Scout is likely making more power than the CJs, and it sounds like it. It's mated to a three-speed manual transmission with a two-speed Dana 20 manual transfer case. Once the 4x4 is engaged, you can take full advantage of the Dana front and rear axles built for off-road duty. When you do take this Scout beyond the pavement, it will be pretty clear why the Interco TSL Thornbird tires are so expensive. The chunky treads and deep groves work together to clear obstacles. If stopping is necessary, front disc brakes give added security. Plus, the fender flares are sealed with the same tough liner paint as the interior, so you don't have to worry about moisture in the body.
Are you staring to get the picture? There's been a lot of time, effort, and money put into this Scout, and now you can reap the rewards. If there is one thing we have learned here is that people pay for quality, and this one definitely wont disappoint. Call today!!
