1979 International Harvester Scout II

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1979 International Scout II. Finished in gunmetal grey metallic, it's recently undergone a frame-off restoration and is easily among the nicest Scouts we have ever sold. Show-quality paint over a very straight body with excellent panel gaps and door fitment. As you would expect with any high-quality paint job, all of the glass was pulled and all rubbers, seals and felts are new. All-new glass has a light tint that's integral to the glass itself, not an applied film, so it will never scratch or peel or turn purple with age. New General Grabber 33x10.50 tires on Ultra "Rogue" 15-inch wheels. Custom, powder-coated GRC bumpers with LED light bar affixed to the front and swing-out tire carrier in the rear with full-size matching spare. Attractive matte-black stripe with red accents plus a black SSII grille. It's a great-looking Scout that never fails to turn heads from casual passers-by, yet on closer inspection the quality and attention to detail will impress even the most seasoned observers.

Interior has been fully restored and is mostly new, with Corbeau bucket seats up front and a stock rear bench reupholstered in matching Corbeau material. New door panels, carpet, headliner and custom door sill plates. Powder-coated GRC roll bar with three-point belts for the front seat occupants. Restored gauges have been re-faced in red to coordinate with the subtle red accents elsewhere on the truck. Modern AM/FM/CD stereo with bluetooth, USB, aux input and pre-wired XM antenna plus four speakers mounted in the front seat bases and kick panels to either side of the rear seat. Very nice leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Under the hood is an IHC 345ci V8 mated to a TorqueFlite 727 automatic with 3.07 gears in Dana 44 axles. Engine was fully rebuilt about 20k miles ago. Brand new aluminum radiator, master cylinder, starter, coil, front brake pads, driveshaft u-joints and Magnaflow exhaust. Axles, transmission and transfer case all recently serviced with fresh fluids. Four-inch suspension lift with new bushings, u-bolts, shocks, shackles and hardware. Very nicely detailed under the hood and underneath with no known rust.

This Scout runs and drives great, and feels considerably smoother and more "put together" than most lifted trucks we drive. Remarkably rattle-free due to fresh suspension and attention to detail throughout -- one of the most common (and annoying) sources of rattles in a Scout II are the folding metal rear tailgate and hatch supports. On this truck, the upper hatch is supported by a telescoping hydraulic strut and the lower tailgate by rubber-coated wire ropes on either side (see photos).

A excellent example of a frame-off-restored Scout that will make its next owner very happy. For more information about this 1979 International Scout II for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
