1965 International Harvester Scout 80

Up for sale is an amazing 1965 International Scout 80. I have owned several 1960s Scout 80s and this one is by far the cream of the crop. This Scout was traded into a classic car dealer from its original owner where I purchased it and became the second owner. This Scout is a clean straight rust-free well maintained and original classic car that has had over $6k in documented services which are listed below. To only have $6k in maintenance over a 50 year period is quite remarkable and a nod to how loved this Scout was and how well built International Harvester made them.The original owners of this Scout were from outside of Philadelphia PA and purchased the vehicle new on August 30 1965 (a copy of the Line Setting Ticket is also included with all of the paperwork). While the Scout was originally for their two sons so they could commute to school and back home on the weekends it quickly became their camp property vehicle during the summer months in Vermont. From what I understand from the original owners summers were enjoyed with this Scout as the family car and after it not getting much use during the 1980s 1990s and early 2000s in May 2006 the brothers decided to have it restored and brought back to original LST quality. You can see by the many pictures that this Scout was cared for greatly and serviced regularly.

She shifts well and tight and runs well. This is a one of a kind original condition Scout 80 and probably one of the cleanest Scouts still in existence.
