The International Harvester Scout is an on- and off-road vehicle produced from 1961 to 1980. A precursor of more sophisticated SUVs to come, it was created as a competitor to the Jeep. The Scout and second generation Scout II were produced in Fort Wayne, Indiana as two-door trucks with options of a half cab pickup or removable hard or soft top.

Scout IIs were manufactured from April 1971 to 1980. The Scout II is most identifiable by its different front grilles, with the 1978–79 Scout II sharing the same grille, three horizontal bars between the headlights and chrome rings around the headlights.

This original paint 1979 International Harvester Scout II lived its life in dry Arizona until recently. Powered by the sturdy International Harvester 345ci V8, this 77,000 mile Scout has Dana 44 front and rear axles and a 3.73 gear ratio.

A rust-free example, the Scout still has its original floors, mounts and rocker panels, which are problem areas typically seen on those not found in dryer climates. Additionally, it has been been updated with an aluminum radiator, AC compressor and electronic ignition.

The interior is very complete, and finished with a fantastic plaid pattern on the seats and door panels. Many of the interior fittings, including the center console, are body-colored and show very well.
