1973 International Scout II
345 V8, Auto Trans,
4x4, Convertible, PS/PB
Up for auction is this super solid and highly optioned West Coast Scout II. Rescued this Iconic SUV from storage. It hasn’t been on the road for several years. It sports a newly rebuilt 2bbl carburetor and the big 345 runs and drives with plenty of power. The Scout has power steering & power brakes but the brakes will need to be checked and gone through as well as the normal operating systems ie- cooling, tune up, trans service etc. Bullet proof Dana’s front and rear. The auto trans works and shifts like it should. She will need new tires as the 31’s are heavily weathered and not road worthy but the aluminum wheels are in great condition. The body is incredibly solid with very little visible rust/cancer. The rockers, quarters, cargo area and body mounts are in very good shape, see the pics and especially check out the body mounts! This is the way you want to find these rigs! The only area that has the usually cancer is the driver’s side front door sill but it’s not bad and these panels are now readily avail and easily replaced. The rear fender lips are beginning to show early signs of cancer but think it’s mostly surface and can be sanded without and major problems. It has after market gauges which bypass the original gauges. The Gas gauge doesn’t work (shocker I know…they always fail) and needs a new sender in the tank. I’ve had many Scouts in the past and this is by far straightest and most solid Scout that I’ve had in a long time. The exterior has a very cool patina and has very little visible damage anywhere. It sports a very cool front push bar and roll bar that adds to the gritty character of this American legend. The interior is complete, original and in great shape. All the glass is in great shape and perfect with the optional sliding rear side glass on the topper. These later year Scouts are by far the best looking and are becoming very popular and getting harder to find. The Title is clear, signed and ready to go. This true American Icon is so fun to drive and draws attention everywhere it goes. Unbolt the top and you have one of the coolest convertible SUV's ever made! Fairly priced with a low reserve. Would make a great rig for the young diver or a candidate for a soft restoration. Where else are you going to find a great Scout like this that is not totally rusted out and not a POS for under 10K? Restored, they are pulling ridiculous money which makes it a great investment! Serious bidders only…please check with your boss before clicking that “Bid” box. If you are a new eBay buyer with zero buying history and are unclear as to your responsibility when bidding and purchasing....please do not bid unless your completely confident on the eBay process.
Hagerty Insurance said this about International Scouts: “International Scouts SUV’s are up by 85%” and that “These SUV’s are going to be the next big thing”.
