Description:

1974 International Harvester Scout

Up for auction is a 1974 International Harvester Scout II, dark orange in color, great trail ride buggy or beach vehicle!!
This is a great truck. Came from a private collection and always stored indoors. Very rust free. Permanent convertible, it comes with no hardtop, though one could be added.
GOOD:
- paint is very good but a few scratches (see photos)
- engine fires every time, havent had any issues with it not starting or running. Runs amazing. I have taken many long trips (150 miles plus) and never had any issues, no overheating, nothing. Runs every time, all the time.
- all glass is good, passed state inspection and all of that no problem.
- Has the new and improved ball bearing window crank handles. If you know these trucks you know what I mean. (expensive)
- Has a custom stereo / TV / video player in the dash, works great.
- seats are in great shape
- 4WD works great, have driven it around the property when it gets muddy. This inline jeep 6 cylinder engine will go all day long.
- chrysler automatic bulletproof 727 transmission, never any problems
- tires are pretty new, lots of tread.
- the shift boots are torn but there are new ones that come with the truck, I will try to get installed for the new buyer
- easily digs through mud, or goes 70mph on the freeway, no problems with either. And looks good while doing it.
- complete inside is bedliner. If it gets dirty, just hose it out!! Seats are weatherproof material as well.
- all LED lighting outside (except headlights)
- gets pretty good gas mileage since it is a 6 cyl
- custom bumpers can pull trailers from front or rear (or mount removable winch)
- Stereo works great, plays movies and may have bluetooth as well but I havent tried that.
- GM steering column, key lock and tilt
- center console (this is old and mounts are cracking)
- power brakes (no power steering)
- Rust Free. Let me repeat, RUST FREE. You be hard pressed to find one this clean.
BAD:
- If you have never had a 4.0 jheep inline 6 cylinder engine, be aware the engine has the common Jeep 6 cyl tick. If you read that it was the jeep 6 cylinder and you have owned one I am sure you expected to hear that. They always tick and still run 300,000 miles. Just dont want someone who is unaware to think something is wrong with it.
- speedometer currently is not working, I will try to see if I can find out why. Maybe just disconnected cable.
- gauges have been replaced with aftermarket, (I assume they are cheaper and work better) but I have a box with all the original gauges if the new owner wants them. Come with the truck.
- a few nicks and scratches, mostly at the tailgate how it touches the rear bumper (see photos)
This is a great looking, great running 4WD buggy for someone who likes to cruise with the wind in their hair. Take a look at others for sale and then come back.
Keep in mind it is 43 years old and not a new car, but it is in good condition considering its age. Very rust free body and chassis.
We do consider trades in the specialty or classic category.
