Description:

1980 International Harvester Scout

HERE IS MY OWN DAILY DRIVER SCOUT II FROM ABOUT 2002-2007. IT IS A 1980 SCOUT II (WITH 1979 GRILLE) BUILT 6/12/1980, ND THE NISSAN SD33T TURBOCHARGED DIESEL ENGINE. FOUR SPEED T-19 CLOSE RATIO TRANSMISSION WITH DANA 300 TRANSFER CASE. HAS 3.73 GEARS IN BOTH DANA 44 AXLES FRONT AND REAR. IT STILL HAS THEDESIRABLE 1980 DANA 44 FRONT AXLE WITH IMPROVED DRIVABILITY AND DISC BRAKES REGARDLESS OF ITS 1979 GRILLE APPEARANCE. IT HAS 95,503 MILES WHICH ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACTUAL BUT CANNOT BE VERIFIED. MECHANICALLY THIS SCOUT WAS 100% RELIABLE. I HAD TAKEN IT ON MANY LONG TRIPS IN ADDITION TO IT BEING MY DAILY DRIVER. IT NEVER LEFT ME BROKEN DOWN OR STRANDED. THE SD33T ENGINE IS A VERY GOOD ONE AND HAS MANY MORE MILES LEFT. THE DRIVETRAIN WAS 100% STOCK WHEN I PURCHASED IT AND MOSTLY STILL IS TODAY. THE ONLY UPGRADES TO THE ENGINE WERE A K&N AIR FILTER, INCH STRAIGHT THRU EXHAUST. THE ENGINE HAS NEVER BEEN "TURNED UP" OR MODIFIED IN ANY OTHER WAY. I BELIEVE THIS IS THE KEY TO THE LONGEVITY OF THE SD33T ENGINE.
THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR ARE STILL IN RELATIVELY GOOD APPEARANCE. IT WAS REPAINTED AROUND 2005 AND STORED INSIDE THE ENTIRE TIME IVE OWNED IT UP UNTIL ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO. IT HAS A FULL CARPET INTERIOR. SINCE IT WAS MY DAILY DRIVER, WENT TO GREAT LENGTHS FOR SOUND AND HEAT INSULATION IN THE INTERIOR. I WANTED IT TO BE AS QUIET INSIDE AS I COULD MAKE IT. PLEASE NOTE INTERIOR PICTURES, ON STOCK HEADLINER, OOR PANELS AND INTERIOR SIDE PANELS COVERED WITH CUT PILE THIN CARPET FOR MAXIMUM SOUD DEADENING. I DID THE WHOLE INTERIOR MYSELF AND IT TURNED OUT PRETTY GOOD AND DID A GOOD JOB OF KEEPING THE NOISE DOWN.
AROUND 2007 THE CLUTCH WAS GETTING WEAK SO THE PLAN WAS TO PULL THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION, O THE CLUTCH JOB AND AN EXTENDED MAINTENANCE ON THE ENGINE, RANSMISSION AND DRIVE TRAIN. AT THE SAME TIME I WAS GOING TO REPAINT THE UNDER SIDE OF THE HOOD AND INNER FENDERS AS WELL AS THE ENGINE ITSELF. I DID NOT GET MUCH FURTHER THAN REMOVING JUST A FEW OF THE UNDER HOOD COMPONENTS. AROUND THAT TIME MY BUSINESS TOOK OFF AND THE SCOUT NEVER GOT ANY MORE ATTENTION. CURRENTLY THE SCOUT AS NOT BEEN STARTED SINCE 2007. ENGINE IS FREE AND I WILL GUARANTEE WITH A BATTERY AND FUEL, T WILL RUN. CURRENTLY NOT RUNNING!
THE NEW OWNER OF THE SCOUT CAN OBVIOUSLY GO WHATEVER DIRECTION THEY WOULD LIKE WITH IT. ONE COULD SIMPLY PUT THE CLUTCH IN IT THAT IT NEEDED WHEN IT WAS PARKED AND START RUNNING IT AGAIN. KEEP IN MIND THAT FROM SITTING IT COULD USE BRAKE COMPONENTS. MY PLAN WAS TO AT THE TIME OF THE CLUTCH JOB, LSO DO AXLE BEARINGS, HEEL BEARINGS, HEEL CYLINDERS, ALIPERS AND PADS. THE STEEL BRAKE LINES AND RUBBER FLEX LINES ARE GOOD. TO GET THIS SCOUT GOING AGAIN IT WILL NEED THE CLUTCH JOB AND BRAKES. THAT SHOULD BE ALL.
THE BAD: IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT THIS SCOUT FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF DOING A RESTORATION, ERE ARE THE BAD SPOTS. INNER FENDERS ARE RUSTY. CENTER BODY MOUNTS ARE REALLY RUSTY. FRONT BODY MOUNTS ARE JUST FAIR. FRONT FLOORS HAVE SOME PREVIOUS PATCHES. LOWER QUARTER PANELS HAVE PATCHES AND SOME OF THE BODY WORK IS STARTING TO SHOW. THE "DOG LEG" AREA OF THE DOORS ARE RUSTY.
THE GOOD. THIS SCOUT HAS EXCELLENT STEEL FRONT FENDERS, ERY VERY NICE RUST FREE HARD TOP, IFT GATE AND TAILGATE. HARD TO FIND FIBERGLASS WINDSHIELD FRAME. HAS A ROCK SOLID AND DESIRABLE DRIVETRAIN. ALSO A DECENT INTERIOR WITH DESIRABLE SEATS, ONSOLE, ILT WHEEL, ALLYE WHEEL. FOR THE STARTING BID, COULD PART THIS SCOUT OUT. THE AXLES, RANSMISSION, RANSFER CASE, NGINE AND DESIRABLE SHEET METAL, HIS SCOUT COULD BRING $4000. NOT TO MENTION THE INTERIOR AND SMALL ITEMS.
