1965 Scout 80

There is a scout like this in one of the junkyards nearby my house. I went and looked at it, and from the looks of it it is a 1965 International Scout 80 4x4. It is brown with a white top. The front windshield is broken out on it. The door handles are gone. The front bench seat is all ripped apart, and it has a bunch of dents on it ranging from 3 inches across to 6 inches long all over the body. Not a lot of rust, but the dents could definetely be fixed I know how to do that, so the body isn't in COMPLETE shambles. It has a 4-banger I believe, the air cleaner said "225" on it. The vin plate said the motor has "86 net horsepower". I was looking at buying something more for hunting and fishing that gets good gas mileage. Does anyone know how much I should offer the guy for it? does anyone know what kind of gas mileage it will get? and will the top come off of these?

Re: 1965 Scout 80

Well....may as well not even think about gas mileage. They don't do bad.......but not do very good either. As for what to offer?........What do you think it's worth? I love scouts....I've owned a few of them. I would think it's worth 300 from what you have said. Does it run? If it runs and the four wheel drive works..........it's a deal at any price up to 500 bucks. Hope this helps. Good luck.
