1980 International Harvester Scout1980 Scout 2 with 304 V8 and automatic. Right hand drive former mail delivery vehicle. Currently not running. Body has dent and dings from service and both rockers have rust as shown in the picture. Otherwise, it's in better shape than most I've seen of this age. 1980 was the only year they had square headlights. Motor is locked up and I've tried ATF/Diesel to get it free but haven't had success yet. I did put a boro-scope in the cylinders and it looks like there's 2 that are the main issue and seized but they are persistent. Otherwise, the fluids looked good and there wasn't any evidence of water in the oil or trans. It has anti-freeze in the radiator so I'm pretty sure it will free up and be good to use if you want. I recently "rescued" this from the weeds at the mail delivery owners house and just don't want to see it wasting away unnecessarily.
Frame and body mounts look solid. 3 tires hold air and brakes are free. Interior is in usable condition. Unknown if mileage is accurate.
I own another Scout so I have some base level knowledge on these things. Not many of them left and this one will make a good driver with an engine swap or someone taking the time to tear down the top half and get it freed up.
Clean TN title. I can help coordinate and load for delivery.
