New Scout Owner - General Questions - Please Share
I am a new Scout owner - I just bought a 1967 Scout and the body is really rough. I am trying to decide what to do. I found a salvage truck near me that the body is in good shape, however it is an earlier model - probably 61-63 and missing the drivers door. Can I take my transmission and Engine and place in the earlier model? My 67 has the 266 V8 and is 4 wheel drive. Can I put my engine and tranny in the 63? If not, will the body panels on the 63 fit my 67? Where can I find a door for the 63 model?
I am anxious to get started and would appreciate any help and advice. Also, the brake drums and lines are missing from the Scout I bought - any ideas on cheaper alternatives to replace than having to find original parts. I know I shoudl probably be authenic, but this is my first Scout and I don't have a lot of money to spend on it... Thanks in advance for your help.
