Name a more iconic car from the 1970s than the International Harvester Scout. It was, as they say, the first true Sport Utility Vehicle. If you’re crazy for ‘70s-era cars, this one’s up for grabs now over at Bring A Trailer.
This 1970 International Harvester Scout 800 is astonishingly restored to perfection. Underneath the whole beastly ride is a 304ci V8 engine. That’s mated to a four-speed manual gearbox and a dual-range transfer case. The truck also comes with everything you’ll ever need if you’re hatching a plan to brave the tumultuous outdoors. Suffice it to say that this is the perfect vehicle for backcountry adventurers. It’s not the best in the market right now, of course. But it gets the job done. The nostalgic appeal is just the icing on top.
This 4×4 comes in a sleek military green color — not too fancy, not too shabby. Just right — the perfect shade of neutral if you’re not really up for showing it off. The restoration added several alterations, by the way. So expect to find power steering, a dual exhaust system, aftermarket wheels, and fender flares. Not to mention custom upholstery, a rear receiver hitch, roof rails, and aftermarket bumpers.
Its allow 15-inch wheels come wrapped in Thunderer Trac Grip mud-terrain tires. What did we say, eh? Outdoor-ready, indeed. The International Harvester Scout 800 is now available. It comes with recent service records plus a clean Oregon title. If you want your truck with a slight nostalgic kick, this is the one to get.BUY HERE
