Re: buying a scout????maybe

International Harvester Scouts are probably the best built off-road vehicle overall. Good engine (even the 4 banger will last forever), good tranny and transfer case and good axles (front disk) on some models. All of their parts are tucked up inside the frame so nothing is hanging down to get whittled away. You could literally get a giant piece of flat steel and cover almost the entire underside for protection. They are just the right size. Not too small and not too big.
For $3800.00 it shouldn't have ANY cancerous rust.

Anything Scout

I had a '73 with the 304, T19, D20 with D30 in the front and D44 in the rear. Well built at 5900 lbs. dry, almost 700 lbs of it is engine. The 345 is the desirable engine and '74 and up had front disc brakes and maybe the D44 front axle.
