Up for auction is a very well represented 1971 International Harvesterout II. I purchase thisvehicle from the second owner and have been restoring it (slowly) for the 3 years. The scout hasbeen in New Mexico since 1985.
THE TRUCK.The truckodometer currently shows 74851 and my guess is it has 174851. It will continue toclimb as I drive itregularly. Itoriginal has rust in the floor boards, above the rear wheel wells and in front of the rear tires. I had it all removed and professional replaced with parts from "Scout Part". There is NO bondo from those repairs. Professional metal work was done here folks!! The only rust that was not repaired is a small bit above the driver side rear wheel well and a body mont on the same side. other than that it is now almost rust free.The Scout sat for a number of years when I purchased it and over the past three years I have also completed thefollowing:
