1975 International Harvester Scout

Frame off mechanical restoration preserves the vast majority of the original design.The main goals of this build were to enhance drivability, reliability, and safety while preserving original character.The general aim of this build was to complete 100,000 maintenance free miles of reliable operation and adventure. Travels and explores any terrain at any altitude thanks to modernized computer controlled fuel system, conservative but capable componentry, and intrinsic off road ability.

Every bolt on this vehicle was turned as part of the build process.All surface rust was removed from the major parts, which were painted black. Nearly every component has been fully replaced with new or fully rebuilt.The body panels and interior have generally been left alone, but are in great shape; an inclined owner could modernize to personal taste or intent. Scout has been gently driven for approximately 750 miles, assuming engine break will occur at around 1000. Starts, runs, and handles flawlessly and reliably.

Many miscellaneous parts acquired throughout the build process (too many to list)

Extensive thought and planning were invested into this build.The highest quality parts available were incorporated at every step. One would be hard pressed to find a Scout that has been more thoroughly and thoughtfully designed and built.This is not a flipped clunker or bait and switch polished piece of junk claiming to be original and sought after. This is a solid ride with a clear title that will probably last 40 more years and go to hell and back if one were so inclined. This vehicle currently has 5 year collector registration in Colorado.
