1977 International Scout II Traveler edition (this Scout is a foot & a half longer than the regular Scout II, so there is 4+feet cargo room behind the back bench seat, or over 6' with the rear seat folded up). This Scout was modified for 4 wheeling, yet can do a comfortable 90 MPH+ on the freeway. It drives nice and easy on the streets, yet can drive over tree trunks and boulders off-road.

New 345 (bulletproof) V-8 engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Rebuilt automatic transmission at same time as motor Install (this is the only 4X4 vehicle that drives better than a stick off-road). 410 gears with OX lockers front and rear. Special Low/Low gears for extreme rock crawling. Dana 44 differentials with added support trusses welded on. Rancho lift, shocks and body lift on 33" tires which are still new. Power steering and power brakes. Front disc, rear drum, like new. 4 core radiator with extra electric fan for hot days.

Added extras: 33 gallon rock proof gas tank for long off-road trips. Front heavy-duty push bumper with built-in 150 PSI air tank. Heavy-duty rear bumper with High jack and can hold 5 gallons of spare motor oil. Both front and rear bumpers have a trailer hitch which accepts a Warn M6000 winch which is wired for front, or rear bumper with remote hand held control. Hidden lockable large compartment under rear folding bench seat. Padded four point roll bar with center utility light. Fully convertible with a Softopper roof. Rear side panels can be rolled up in the summer for more breeze while keeping shade overhead. Interior floor and side panels are coated with bedliner so the interior can be washed out with a garden hose after trail or camping trips.

The exterior has a new paint job, but please keep in mind that this is an off-road vehicle. I did not fix all the dents, rather just paint over them. Over the last 20 years, I put my money into the mechanics of this vehicle, not the body. You will see in the photos that I did not use to care if had to scrape a rock or tree limb while 4-wheeling. I mainly had it painted to get it looking one color again. All lights and gauges work and there is a detachable faceplate Blaupunkt cassette/stereo, with 100 watt Amp and good quality front & rear speakers of the day installed.

Keep in mind this is a classic V-8 International. It is heavy duty farm equipment style. They still make the same engine for school buses today. This is a simple old school engine though. I have always warmed it up atleast 5 minutes before driving in the morning. The old steel engine blocks are basically bullet-proof, but they need to be warmed up to best preform. Weirdly enough, once warmed up once in the morning, it can do quick starts throughout the day and is very powerful. This Scout has a smooth ride and can also turn on a dime. This was my daily driver for 20 years and I loved it. I'd love to sell it to someone that who loves off-roading and the more difficult trails. It's been modified for the toughest trails and this vehicle loves the challenges. It has never been stuck and often helps pull out others (Jeeps) found stuck on the trails.
There are two downsides: first is that I removed the AC and cruise control units when I changed out the engine ten years ago. The other is it is not smogable in California, because of their higher EPA rules (it misses exemptions by one year). It is currently registered out of Washington state, it is legal there and in the other 48. I'm hoping that someone out of California is interested, or someone who has friends or family out of state for the registration.
