1978 International Scout Traveler Midas Edition

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this awesome 1978 International Scout II Traveler Midas Edition. Among the most interesting Scout II variants ever offered, the Midas Scouts rode the conversion van wave that swept the country in the late 1970s. International Harvester contracted with the Midas Conversion Van Company from 1977 through 1980 to transform an ordinary Scout into a plush family hauler, complete with swiveling bucket seats with armrests, shag carpet and custom upholstery and headliners. The long-wheelbase Traveler came equipped with a third-row seat that folds flat to make a kid-sized bed.

This truck has been repainted once to a very nice standard in the original color of Winter White with brown accent stripes, but is otherwise a remarkably original and well-preserved example. Nearly new 31x10.50 BF Goodrich all terrains on stock steel wheels with factory hubcaps in excellent condition. A dry Texas truck, the body is straight and solid and the floors, rockers and cab supports are in pristine original condition with zero rust (the underside has not been undercoated so you know it's not hiding anything -- see photos). Spectacular, mostly original interior with the exception of new carpet. Excellent dash, door panels, headliner and seat upholstery. The front seats tilt and swivel, the second row seats tilt and slide fore and aft, and the third row seat folds flat into a bed. All gauges are clear and working. Original AM/FM radio in the dash also works.

Under the hood is an IH 345 cubic inch V8 mated to a TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission. Recent belts, hoses, fluids, tune-up, electronic ignition (Pertronix) conversion, engine reseal, transmission service, four-wheel power disc brakes, rebuilt steering box. Runs and drives exceptionally well; steering is tight and responsive, brakes feel great, and due to a stock suspension with no lift, the ride quality is excellent. In order to keep the engine bay as original as possible, the original York A/C compressor was retained (which is both noisy and inefficient). Should the next owner choose, better A/C performance can easily be obtained by switching to a Sanden-style rotary compressor, as the rest of the A/C components are in excellent working order.

With its clean white exterior, this Traveler manages to be both timeless and unassuming -- but upon opening the door, you're transported back to the late 1970s in all its shag-carpeted glory.
