1977 International Harvester Scout
Up for action is a rust free sunny California survivor Scout delivered to and sold new in Sacramento, alifornia. All docsincluding original window sticker, arranty papers, ales brochures, ndline setting ticket are included! Loaded with every option includingA/C, ilt, ruise, M/FM, tc- original cost was just under$9,100 (check out the photo of the window sticker)! The history I am able to find indicates the Scout spent most its early life in Northern California with a short stint in Oregon and the last 12 years in sunny Southern California as a Photographer’s toy and prop. This Scout is a very clean well cared for low mileage (106,000) “Honest” rig.
Why am I selling such a rare piece? Aside from a muscle car sickness, have two 1st generation Broncos and several Ford Highboys. When it comes to the 4x4s my passion is with the Fords! And when I run out of room or need to fund another project it is the non-Ford stuff that is first to go. Since everything 4x4 I own at the moment is Ford, ith the exception of this Scout, he Scout must go!
I'll do my best to describe this Scout. This is an honest rig,what you see hereis a survivor that has one repaint (many years ago) and the carpet replaced at some time.
Exterior:One older repaint with good shine. The Glacier blue really pops! Normal scratches and chips from use..Straight with no apparent signs of rust. Having spent most of its life in California the Scout was not exposed to the snow, ud, rime and road salt used elsewhere. There is a VERY minor dent by the passenger’s taillight. It appears to have been caused by an extremely light encounter with a pole or ???? It is almost unnoticeable. The graphics were painted on when the Scout was repainted – no decals. The paint under the hood is slightly discolored but all original,glass is in good condition but there are several scratches in the rear hatch glass. Chrome is nice for its age with the normal dings etc for a 38 year old rig . Wheels are aftermarket style and inexcellent shape with no pitting. Tires are near new Goodyear All Terrains.
Interior: The all original (except carpet) wedgewood blue interior is in excellent condition. Really fresh and seems new when you climb into the vehicle. I haven't seen an interior this clean in many, any years. Really nice with none of the typical moisture damage or pitting. No rodent damage or smells. All gauges, ights, eater, adio etc in good working order. Everything works but cruise, lock and A/C. All stock save for aftermarket stereo to better enjoy the weekly countdowns on those clear California cruise nights! Tilt wheel has some very minor slop but nothing concerning. Pretty much perfect save for very small crack on the dash, small piece of the wood trim cracked off on the shifter indicator and fading of the replacement carpet.
Mechanical:Very goodmechanical condition. As a pampered vehicle, his truck was never 4 wheeled. Very well maintained, hatever this rig needed over the years, t got. Vehicle has not been modified in any way, ven has original exhaust with aftermarket mufflers. Everything works except A/C and cruise.I am not sure what is wrong with the A/C but the Scout came to me with a new compressor in the box and that will be included with the truck. 304 V8 is strong and starts, uns, nd drives out well. Trans shifts well and 4x4 works great. Rear-end has “optional” gear ratio and is a locker according to line sheet and window sticker.Typicalold 4x4 minor drips on garage floor, ut nothing major.The brakes may be a little glazed over from lack of use as the Scout does not meet my expectations in the stopping department. Perhaps just a Scout thing but??? Doesn't heat,and I can't see anything that needs attention besides A/C and cruise if you want them working.
Pricing/Misc: Tried looking for comparable Scouts and found the following. An orange Rallye in similar condition sold a month or so ago for close to $20,000. Currently there is a restored (there only original once) Glacier Blue Rallye on Ebay that has bid up over $28,000 with the reserve not met! Both these rigs were taken into consideration when I set my reserve.
As is the case with all my vehicle sales, nce the auction closes I will take the Scout in for a full service (engine, ifferentials and trans) and final inspection to make certain no gremlins have taken up residency since its last visit with the mechanic. IF ANY issues are discovered over and above what was previously disclosed they will be taken care of by me at no cost to the buyer
You will be hard pressed to find another Scout in this condition with all the documentation that is included. If you are in the market for a Scout this sunny Southern California survivor should be considered!
Happy bidding. Feel free to call Dean at 661-703-8402 with any questions.
