1978 INTERNATIONAL SCOUT II. FRAME OFF RESTORED 3-4 YEARS AGO.
This 1978 International Scout II is a very very nice rig. It underwent a frame-off restoration 3-4 years ago and it was totally gone through at that time. According to the last owner it has around 5,000 miles on it since being restored. He had it restored for his daughter and she only drove it on nice days in the Spring and Summer Months in Ohio. Unfortunately the restoration receipts did not come with the Scout, but as you will see in the pictures it is a beautiful truck. The body on this Scout is excellent. It is very straight and solid. It was repainted when it was restored and the paint still looks wonderful. We believe it was repainted in the International Scout Factory Color of Glacier Blue. The paint is really, really nice. There are no rust issues with this Scout and the underside looks great as well. They powder coated the frame when it was restored and put all new body bushings on too. The interior was also restored and it is in great condition. The factory seats were recovered and they added new carpet and headliner. All of the gauges work as well as the lights, blinkers, heat, horn, wipers etc.
Mechanically this Scout is very sound and ready to roll. It runs and drives great with good power from the engine. The engine is the 345 V8 and it was rebuilt at the time of restoration. Again, there are around 5,000 on this work. The engine starts very easy with no smoke or red flags and it runs really nice. You can tell it was rebuilt by looking at all of the new parts and it runs like a top. The engine has a mild cam and they also added dual exhaust so it sound great!! Transmission is the 727 Automatic with a Dana 20 Transfer Case. The tranny shifts great and the 4wd system works as it should. Both Axles are DANA 44's with 3.45 Gears. It has Power Front Disc Brakes in the front. The whole brake system was gone through when restored. It also has Power Steering. This has a 2 Inch Spring Lift which was added when restored and it has the Vintage Turbine Wheels with newer 33 Inch Tires. I have to mention again how nice this Scout drives.
