Check out the FAQ over at

Good sight for general International Harvester Scout/light truck info.

Enjoy the new Scout. They're fun!

Re: New Scout Owner
I've had a 66 and 78 now and enjoyed every minute of them. The 78 was my first "car". Scouts are truly the best vehicle ever made. I never had a problem with mine, well other than the rust.
