Scout Newbie help?

I need a little help from you vetran Scout types. I'm just an innocent guy who was walking down the street minding my own business, when suddenly I was struck by an incurable disease: Scout fever (not that any of you understand, I'm sure!) I am destined to drive one some day and need to start planning now.

I'd be looking for a Scout II V-8 in good condition. Not a collector's item mind you (I'd pound the thing off road) but I'd prefer no rust & good mechanical shape. What should I expect to pay?

Thanks for any advice...

Re: Scout Newbie help?

In this day and age, finding a Scout that's not rusty is a very difficult thing to do. I have a Scout II with the diesel engine that I paid $2,000 for...and it's so rusted out that except the drivetrain, the truck's basically worthless. I'd guess you're looking at between $2,000 and $3,000...and if you find a rust-free truck, you are one lucky SOB. Again, that's just a guess...you could get lucky and find a good truck for under $1,000...and if you find one that's in good shape but doesn't run, go for it anyways...parts aren't all that easy to find, but these trucks are pretty easy to fix, for the most part...good luck!
