1977 International Harvester Scout Traveler
My Scout’s Story: I originally purchased my Scout in 2003. I am not sure how many owners it had before me, ut it was in nice shape and came from Utah. Since that time, have undertaken many upgrades to make it more powerful, ore reliable, nd have better drivability and fuel economy. I am selling it because I don’t have the time to enjoy it the way I used to. This Scout is so much fun to drive and draws attention wherever it goes.
The Drivetrain is out of a 1997 Dodge ¾ ton truck. It has a 12 valve Cummins 5.9 liter turbo diesel engine that starts right up and runs strong. I am not sure of the mileage as the gauge cluster in the truck it came out of did not work. It runs way stronger than any of the other Cummins 12 valves that I have driven, o I imagine that it has been rebuilt at some point, ut I cannot prove that. It is mated to a NV4500 5 speed manual transmission. It shifts into 4 wheel drive flawlessly. The suspension is stock Dodge 3/4 ton springs with Bilstein shocks all the way around. It has a Dana 60 front axle and a Dana 80 rear axle. The tires are Falken Wildpeak A/T 315 70-17’s which equate to 35” and are on Hummer H2 aluminum wheels. They have approximately 90% tread left on them. The Scout is very easy to drive and averages 22mpg mixed and gets 25mpg on the highway. It also cruises down the highway at 70mph or more with ease and drives smooth, ust like it should. No shakes, attles, ulling, tc.
The major part of the renovation was completed at the end of 2012. To facilitate the ease of making the Dodge drivetrain work with the Scout, he Scout Traveler body was put on to the Dodge frame. All of the work was done at a professional shop in the Orlando area at a cost of over$30,000. At the time of the renovation, here were some rust issues that I had addressed. In order to make sure those issues did not come back, he hood, indshield frame, nd both doors were replaced with fiberglass components by Kentrol. To this day, hey all look great, owever, he doors should be adjusted, s they have always sagged a little. There is some rust starting to show on the driver’s side front quarter panel at the bottom where it meets the front door, s well as a few minor spots under a few of the fenders. The floors and bed have all been covered with spray in bed liner and are solid with 3 exceptions that I have seen. There is an area on each of the foot wells that run along a seam there. The other area is where the bed meets the floor just behind the rear seat, nd it is rusted across the bottom, ut should be an easy fix from underneath. The body is accented with a padded rollbar with 3-point seatbelts installed on both front seats. It also has D&C Extreme 3/8” steel nerf bars that have been welded to the frame.
The interior door panels have been professionally painted gloss black and match the dash pad. At the time of the major renovation, he original gauge cluster was removed and has been replaced with a brushed aluminum dash with a full compliment of Autometer analog gauges. These gauges are in place, ut have not yet been hooked up to the engine. There is a gauge cluster out of a Dodge that has been wired in and sits on the console just under the A/C vents. The stock wiring harness has been removed and replaced with a Painless Wiring Harness. The headlights have been upgraded to a HID H4 system and light up the road and everything else in front of you. The A/C blows super cold and will keep you cool in even the hottest weather. At this time, here is no radio, ut there is a place for one in the Tuffy locking center console. Also, o make wiring the radio easier, iring has been put in place under the spray in bed liner. The seats are grey cloth and are out of a Ford, think. They are in ok condition, ut if I were going to keep my Scout for any length of time, would get around to replacing them with black vinyl or leather seats to match the rest of the interior. The seats are mounted on custom seat bases that have storage compartments in them.
I have a bunch of spare parts that I will include with the sale as well. They include replacement large door windows, wo spare grills, few side marker lights, nd a number of other miscellaneous parts.
Within the past two months, t has had the charging system replaced with two new batteries and a new alternator.
