Yep, I’m selling my 1977 International Harvester Scout II 4x4: Listed at $23,500 OBO
345 CID International V-8 engine; only 17k miles; Factory 4×4 with two-speed transfer case; 4-speed manual transmission;
31″ tires and aluminum wheels; Owners Manual included; Clean Title; MSD Ignition; Rear Tire Mount;
Air conditioning; power steering; power brakes
A good driving vehicle and a way to stand out from the truck and SUV crowd can be found in one vehicle – an International Scout. I purchased in March 2018 and since then, I've only driven it about 400 miles, but put over $17k into it. I'm selling it because we are starting a new business venture and simply don't have the time to dedicate to it like I thought I would. I'm currently asking about $10k less than what I have into it, but I know my loss will definitely be someone else's gain for years to come. Many upgrades and very little rust, this Scout runs and drives great and needs very little to take it from a fantastic looking driver to a best-in-show winner. Current mileage on the odometer shows 17,141 and title history, etc. seems to reflect this is actual mileage, from what I can tell. It's currently garage kept and is started weekly. The only thing missing is its new home.
Since purchase, I have updated/upgraded the following mechanical/structural components:
New #Fi-Tech programmable fuel injection system with custom installation of control mechanism;
New Custom Front Bumper and 12,000 lb Winch with remote;
New door locks and lock springs;
New Side Mirrors;
New glove box and locking center console;
New black vinyl front bucket seats and seat brackets;
New carpet and door seals;
New Wiper transmission arms;
Rebuilt wiper motor;
New Fuel pump;
New a/c compressor;
New spray coating - rear section;
New Solar Guard window tint;
In addition, I had a completely custom sound system ($6k) and LED interior/rock lighting ($2k) installed.

Anybody have a Scout II they are looking to sell? Looking for one with gas engine and 4 speed manual trans. Not afraid of a little work, but not interested in a wreck. Not looking for fancy or restored. Willing to consider travel or transport for the right one. Drop me a line if you know of anything. Thx
1969 International Scout 800-A 2 Door $34,950
Factory "Doll-Up-Scout" with many custom ordered options! True one owner Scout, the current title is in the same name as the original 1968 dealer order sheet! Very original and correct, matching numbers Scout 800A with AMAZING documentation!
Custom, factory-ordered with original correspondence letters with International district service manager. Possibly the only example ever ordered this way. This rare example is done in White steel travel-top over Bahama Blue exterior with reupholstered camel interior, Commando 196 CID four-cylinder engine RA-23 single-reduction rear axle with 3.73 Power-Lok limited-slip differential, T-44 four-speed manual transmission and factory dual 10-gallon fuel tanks. International-Harvester had a knack for driving to the beat of a different drummer and for being ahead of the curve. The Scout was a good example of the latter, offered way before the acronym SUV was coined.
This rare example was custom ordered on 7/12/68 and then built in September 1968 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, this Scout 800A is possibly the only one ever built with this unique configuration. Custom and factory-ordered, it was delivered to the Mamaroneck Garage in Mamaroneck, New York. The “Doll-Up-Scout” was a high-option model offered to compete with Jeep. It left the factory with options – a spare tire carrier, chrome rear bumper, four-wheel disc brakes, dual 10-gallon fuel tanks, white hardtop and a full-width rear seat.
Documentation includes a hand-drawn switch panel diagram, original factory build sheet, original bill of sale, original line setting ticket, original owner's manual, original print advertisement, battery warranty, letters to and from I-H, Inc., miscellaneous service invoices, insurance and license papers
Motor Truck Service Manual is included and is COMPLETELY filled out correctly with service and parts logs from the original owner form 1969 to 2012

Making lists for the next steps. Apparently frame is welded to body, so lift is out, but new shackles and shims are on the way. Front disc brake conversion is on the way and new gas tank for between the rails will be here next week. @email@example.com
Until you’ve been a Parent, you’ll never fully comprehend the deep feeling of pride as you hold your child’s hand and walk them into school.
The other day, I listened to a Father brag and boast of his career and that it keeps him too busy to ever have time to take his kids to or from school.
It was sad that he took more pride in the validation of his career efforts from acquaintances and gathered strangers versus impacting his own blood; his legacy.
We all make sacrifices in life to provide survival for our families. I get it. But these moments with our kids won’t last forever.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta say fuck it, disconnect, pick up your kids, take them somewhere outside to play under God’s sun, disengage off electronics and feed them some sugary shit.
Sometimes you’ve got to happily accept that it’s going to take twice as long to do something because you have your children help. Besides it being a helluva moment for you both, the education, impact and lesson is priceless.
Trust me, the smile on their face will reinforce to you that you’ve made the right decision.
For those I love, I will sacrifice.
