Re: Purchasing a Scout
One other thing is that, as with any used car, you don't always get what you pay for. My Dad bought a Scout II that had 'just been sitting' around for a couple of years. He picked it up for $150, and it runs like a horse! Although it does have rust, it's not very bad (rockers & lower rear quarters only). By the same token, I've seen people asking $3000 for Scouts that are some of the worst I've ever seen. Get educated about these vehicles by researching them on the net like the last post mentioned.There is a ton of info on these on the 'net.
Technically speaking their 'book value' has gone up recently, but not astronomically, yet! Good luck & keep us posted!
That said, it boils down to deciding on the truck you want and determining what it will take to get it into the shape you'd like if it's not already.
