1963 International Harvester ScoutUp for sale is my 1963 IH Scout 80. Here's everything you need to know about this classic 4x4.
This scout was shipped out from Idaho and only driven in the summer months. It has always been taken off the road and put in storage for the winter. It has the original 152 4 cylinder that the previous owner had entirely rebuilt, t90 transmission, and dana 27 axles, the rear with posi limited slip, an option at the time. The engine runs beautifully, burns zero oil whatsoever, and has been very reliable for me. It does however leak some oil, an easy fix with a couple gaskets though. Last summer I took the scout on a 2500 mile road trip with zero issues. It cruises down the highway 60-65mph no problem, and usually returns about 20mpg on the highway. It has 56k miles on the clock but I can't say whether it had rolled over at 100k previously. It currently has a NH inspection until April 2017.
All of the lights work, markers, hazards, brakes, turn signals, and headlights all function correctly. The brakes are good, the steering is in good condition. I have never had the scout off road. The suspension has a 2" lift installed, with new shackles, all new bushings and new Monroe shocks installed at the same time. The previous owner had two new bumpers built for it that are stronger than the originals as seen in the pictures. They are just bolted on so they are easy to remove if you wanted to return it to a more original look. They also had a roll bar installed, but again, it is positioned so that it would be easy to cut out and remove without having to patch anything. The body and frame are extremely solid. The front floors are solid, which is a common rust spot. The only place where there was once significant rust was the rear floor. The previous owner had the entire rear floor cut out and replaced with a thick diamond plate floor. I hope the pictures show how clean of a job they did with it. If it wasn't diamond plate, it could pass as being original. As you can see in the pictures I have the top, which is in good shape, no rust or anything like that, but the paint job isn't quite as good as the rest of the scout. I always garaged the vehicle so I didn't need the top 95% of the time.There is no radio installed currently but the appropriate bracket is there with removable block off plates to make installing one easy in the future. The gas gauge isn't working at the moment and the temp gauge just needs the right adapter to be reinstalled.
This scout isn't a trailer queen but it is a nice clean example of a scout that's driven and enjoyed. Appropriately, it's been maintained and upgraded to make it a more enjoyable and more comfortable driving experience. Recent improvements/maintenance:
- 4 BFG all terrain tires w/ less than 5k miles on them, and five new cragar wheels ($1100)- Full size spare and original spare tire carrier- New Bestop seats front and rear. ($800)The rear folds to allow more usable space in the bed. They are made of a nice heavy duty vinyl that's weather resistant and very comfortable- New seatbelts- Electric windshield wiper kit- a huge improvement if you've ever tried the originals- Carb rebuild- New heater fan- heat works great! 2 speeds- New windshield and trim installed- Both gas tanks cleaned and sealed, new fuel line, fuel filter, and gas caps- Brake fluid flush- Coolant flush- New clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder, and line- New muffler and exhaust replaced- New alternator- New belt- New monroe shocks- New suspension bushings
Buyer is responsible for shipping but I can help assist on my end. Sold as is. I also have a couple boxes full of spare parts that will go with the scout. Please contact me before bidding if you have less than 5 ebay transactions. Thanks for looking!
