Description:

1965 International Harvester Scout

HERE IS A 1965 SCOUT 80. IT HAS THE 152 FOUR CYLINDER ENGINE. FOUR WHEEL DRIVE WITH THREE SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION. OVERALL THE SCOUT HAS AMATEUR PAINT AND BODY WORK DONE A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. THIS IS A 30 FOOTER. LOOKS NEAT FROM A DISTANCE BUT HAS PLENTY OF COSMETIC ISSUES. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SHOW SCOUT OR ONE TO RESTORE TO PERFECTION, LEASE LOOK FOR ANOTHER SCOUT! THIS SCOUT WOULD MAKE SOMEONE A GREAT DRIVER, EAD TURNER, R FUN PROJECT VEHICLE. WE GET SO MANY CALLS FROM PEOPLE LOOKING FOR A REASONABLY PRICED SCOUT THAT IS BUDGET FRIENDLY - HERE IT IS.
THE GOOD - THIS SCOUT STARTS, UNS AND DRIVES JUST AS IT SHOULD. YOU CAN BE DRIVING THIS SCOUT ON THE ROAD THIS SPRING AND SUMMER! IT HAS A GOOD SET OF ROADWORTHY TIRES. MECHANICALLY THIS SCOUT IS VERY SOUND. THE REAR BED FLOOR WAS REPLACED YEARS AGO. THE WORK WAS DONE IN VERY GOOD QUALITY AND MOST WOULD NOT KNOW EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT IT WAS DONE WITH A FLAT SHEET OF STEEL VS. THE FACTORY BED FLOOR WHICH HAD RIBBING. THE FRONT FLOORS ALSO HAVE HAD PATCH WORK IN STEEL AND SOME FIBERGLASS, HEY ARE SOLID AND NOT IN NEED OF ANY REPAIR, UT THEY ARE CERTAINLY NOT THE ORIGINAL FLOOR BOARDS. THE QUARTER PANELS, ND CAPS, ND DOORS ARE RELATIVELY SOLID. THE DOORS BEING EXCEPTIONALLY SOLID. THE CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER AND HYDRAULIC SLAVE CYLINDER ARE RELATIVELY NEW AND ALL IN GOOD WORKING OPERATING CONDITION. THE TRANSFER CASE AND 4X4 HUBS SHIFT IN AND OUT WELL, HE FOUR WHEEL DRIVE WORKS FINE. THE ENGINE STARTS WELL AND RUNS STRONG, AS GOOD POWER. NO ABNORMAL NOISES OR ISSUES INDICATING REPAIRS IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
THE BAD - THE PASSENGER SIDE FENDER HAS A LARGE RUST BUBBLE, ND OBVIOUS PREVIOUS REPAIR. THE ROCKER PANELS HAVE ALSO BEEN PATCHED IN THE PAST AND THERE ARE SOME QUALITY ISSUES HERE. IT ALL DOESNT LOOK BAD FROM A DISTANCE, UT IT IS NOT ORIGINAL, UALITY BODY WORK. IT ALSO HAS AN EXHAUST LEAK AT THE DONUT GASKET. IF THE BIDDING GOES OVER $4,000 WE WILL INSTALL COMPLETE NEW EXHAUST FROM MANIFOLD TO TAILPIPE FOR THE NEW BUYER. (WE WILL NEED APPROXIMATELY 5 DAYS AFTERWARDS TO HAVE THIS DONE). SOME LIGHTS ARE NOT WORKING, HIS WILL BE UP TO THE NEW BUYER TO FIX. THE BRAKE AND TURN SIGNAL LIGHTS WORK, UT NO DASH LIGHTS OR HEADLIGHTS. THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW IS ESPECIALLY HARD TO ROLL UP AND DOWN. THE T-HANDLE LATCH FOR THE LIFTGATE IS MISSING.
THIS IS A GREAT SCOUT FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE $10K-$20K TO SPEND ON A RESTORED ONE! KEEP IN MIND THOUGH, HAT IT IS AN OLDER VEHICLE AND HAS PLENTY OF QUIRKS AND IMPERFECTIONS TO GO ALONG WITH IT. THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT FOR THOSE FIRST TIME BUYERS WHO HAVE NEVER OWNED A SCOUT BEFORE. WITH THE EXHAUST FIXED AND THE LIGHTS WORKING, WOULDN'T BE AFRAID TO START DRIVING THIS SCOUT LOCALLY AND EVENTUALLY BUILD UP CONFIDENCE AND RELIABILITY FOR LONGER TRIPS. THE NEW OWNER IS LIKELY BEST TO TRAILER IT HOME. AGAIN, E GET SO MANY CALLS FOR SCOUTS JUST LIKE THIS ONE. OFTEN TIMES WE HAVE THEM AT OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE SPECTRUM - EITHER FULLY RESTORED OR TOO INTENSIVE RESTORATION PROJECT VEHICLES. THIS SCOUT IS A GREAT ONE TO TINKER WITH AND HAVE FUN WHILE ENJOYING IT. ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL BRENDAN AT 717-875-2271
