This 1976 International Scout II is a beautiful SUV that came out of California. It was restored 3-4 years ago and remains in excellent condition. It is a very stock restoration. The restoration was done on a very clean, low mile and original Scout. Currently the Odometer shows 113,714 Miles and based on the floors being original and over all integrity of this Scout we believe these are true miles. The body on this Scout is really nice. The paint is straight and excellent and the body really straight. The underside is rock solid and when it was restored they added new body mounts to the original floors. Interior was redone when restored and the seats were all reupholstered. they also added new carpet, but they left the rest original because it was in great shape. It still has the original cargo mat in the rear and also the original side panels in the rear which are in excellent condition. The interior really shows this was a low mileage and well-cared fro Scout its entire life. The drivetrain is also very nice and stock. It has the original 345V8 that runs strong and the 4 Speed Manual Transmission shifts wonderful. It has AC, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, and DANA 20 Transfer Case. Axles are DNA 44s front and rear. This Scout is a lot of fun to drive and runs and drives really nice. We always make sure lights, blinkers, wipers, etc are working. We hand pick each vehicle, drive it, inspect it, and make sure it is ready for you to enjoy! We drive what we sell so that we can give you a first hand and accurate report on how the vehicle runs and drives. Complete Pictures and Video at www.4-wheelclassics.com
Over a span of more than 80 years, International Harvester forged a strong reputation as the builder of rock solid heavy-duty trucks. Along the way, the company consistently proved itself a worthy competitor to much more well-known manufacturers, and battled Jeep and Fords Bronco toe to toe in what was then a fledgling SUV market. Looking rugged as can be, this 1976 International Scout II is a great example of Internationals prowess in the niche during that time. It features a strong running powerplant under its hood and, with some well-focused attention, can be made into an ultra-appealing, robust workhorse thats sure to turn heads with its uniqueness and sturdy good looks. You can see right away how this Scout ably served as the precursor to the more sophisticated SUVs of the present, yet at the same time its certainly unique, with its rugged, unapologetically beefy shape, ample wheel clearance and wide track. You may from time to time see a classic SUV on the road thats been modded for an open-air driving experience, but this ride actually left the factory that way and has a look all its own. The Glacier Blue shade draped over its exterior provides a really nice look and the paint sports a nice shine and a smooth texture. Its easy to picture yourself behind the wheel with nothing but blue sky above you, but for those occasions calling for more shelter, theres a one-piece hardtop included that features fixed glass windows and a hinged lift gate for access to the cargo area in back. The blue cloth interior inside the doors is loaded with vintage appeal. Both the bucket seats up front and bench seat in back are in solid shape and plenty comfortable. Unlike so many trucks of this era, all interior components are present and accounted for, so therell be no puzzle-like challenges to be answered while figuring out what part is meant to go where. There is a mix of functional and non-functional items, but you can easily see how appealing this interior would be once restored. Its a nicely configured driving environment - the Scouts ample width means theres plenty of shoulder room for full sized passengers and theres a substantial amount of cargo space behind the rear bench seat. The engine compartment houses an assortment of components that are almost certainly original, including the 345 cubic inch V8 that sits at the center. Its an eager powerplant, firing up promptly and providing this substantial vehicle with surprisingly strong acceleration as it teams with a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic Torqueflite transmission. The power steering on hand here is a welcome surprise - its got a nice, easy feel to it while still providing good response and it pairs with power brakes that feature discs up front to bring dependable, fade resistant stops. This rugged classic performs its work on a set of very sharp 15 stock black steel wheels outfitted with Hankook Ventus tires. Combining a distinctively rugged look with some bona fide collectability due to its rarity, this 1976 International Scout II would be a great acquisition for the classic truck enthusiast in search of a ride that stands apart from the crowd.
