To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Arizona event, 17 - 18 January 2019. Estimate:$70,000 - $90,000 Concours-quality restoration by marque expertRestored to Super Sport II specifications using original and NOS partsReady to show or go, on and off the roadBy 1971, competition within the off-roader market was heating up. Ford s Bronco, the new Chevy Blazer, and Jeep s CJ and Wagoneer were all vying for buyers in the fast-growing segment. International Harvester, playing the role of underdog, responded with its new Scout II. The Scout II was larger than the Scout 800 it replaced, with fresh new styling that was more modern yet still retained the Scout s basic, rugged appeal. But perhaps the most successful of the Scout specials had to be the purposeful, stripped out, bare-bones Super Scout II.The SS II was built for sheer off-road enjoyment. Standard steel doors were eschewed in favor of Bronco roadster-inspired fiberglass inserts and removable, soft-sided doors. The fiberglass top was replaced by a simple, removable soft vinyl canopy on a light frame, and a roll bar was mounted behind the front seats. Outside, distinct ABS plastic inserts are fitted to the grille and tailgate along with a graphics applique package and white painted wagon wheel rims, with raised white letter off-road tires.The outstanding 1978 Scout on offer has been impeccably restored. During restoration, a standard Scout II was upgraded to factory-correct SS II specification. It was expertly prepped and painted inside and out in the factory-correct shade of Omaha Orange. Original-style door inserts were then fitted correctly presented in bare satin black with exposed hardware. Original graphics were reproduced and applied to the quarters and front fenders, and other correct SS II parts such as the flares, ABS plastic grille and tailgate inserts, and complete soft top and door set were sourced from noted IH Scout experts. Bare painted floors, correct for the SS II, are protected by correct IH branded rubber floor mats. The bucket seats, center console, and tilt steering column are also part of the SS II package. The only deviation from standard is the plain black seat upholstery; a correct material and pattern for standard Scouts, and a more attractive option.The frame has been fully media blasted and refinished in correct satin black powder coat for a long lasting and durable finish. Under the hood is the International s 345-cu. in. V-8, which is fully detailed; it is backed by a freshly refurbished Torqueflite automatic transmission and integrated transfer case. Power disc brakes and power steering help make it an easy and enjoyable drive while, for safety and usability, a poly fuel tank replaces the original steel tank.This is an audacious period piece that is a great alternative to more commonplace classic off-roaders, and a fabulous expression of late 1970s style. Few International Harvester Scouts have been restored with such attention to detail, and this outstanding truck is ready for show or enjoyment, on and off the road.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az19.

The 1977 79 Scout IIs used the same grille between the same headlight bezels the new chrome grille had two large horizontal bars with three vertical support lines and the International nameplate moved up to the center of the grille on the left side. Starting with late 1974 Scout IIs, disc and power brakes were standard features. A three-speed Chrysler 727 Torqueflite was optional.

1978 IH Scout II, 345 V8 engine w/ 2 bbl Holley carb, Torqueflight 727 Automatic transmission, Dana 20 2-speed transfer case, Dana 44 axles front & rear. Has dual exhaust, A/C (non-functioning but all parts there), bucket seats, roll bar, removable top, straight-steer brace. Scout had body restoration completed in 1994 which included new paint, floors, fiberglass rear quarters, front fender patches, lower door skins, and new seat upholstery. I have owned since 2001, was my daily driver for two years and has been in storage in my garage since then. It gets driven briefly every few months. My interests have changed, and it's time for it to go to someone with an interest in maintaining it. The Scout runs and drives, but not well, and should be considered a project vehicle. It will need hauled to your location. Engine runs but needs camshaft bearings, runs rough above 2500 rpm. Transmission will not shift from 2nd-3rd gear. Recent new parts include: reman holley carb, starter, alternator, fuel pump, tune-up (plugs, wires, coil, ballast resistor, cap/rotor). Exhaust, steering gear, water pump, and front brakes have been replaced. Some rust through on front fenders, and surface rust but otherwise body is solid. Minor frame weld repair needed at passenger side rear spring hanger. Floors, body mounts, rockers are good condition. Doors close easy with no sag. Have extensive records, repair manuals, some extra parts. This Scout is a great starting point for a restoration or build. Additional pictures available by request. https://vimeo.com/309798112 https://vimeo.com/309800024 Please call or text with questions or to discuss. Serious inquiries only, offers considered. Thank you, Bryan.Note: 1/12/19 I have reduced the price to reflect the engine and transmission condition. If the Scout does not sell within the next two weeks I plan to rebuild the transmission and replace camshaft bearings. It will be re-listed and priced accordingly.
