Default im f*cking stoked right now

its 8:10 right now and i got a call around 6 froma friend who knew of a early 60's international scout for free sittin down the road from my house , we go check it out , its all original , i meen down to the freakin hub caps!! hasnt been registered since 1993 but its all complete and original , gettin up before the suns even up to go fetch it and tow it home . going to clean it up and try and get it running this week , looks like its been sittin in a barn somewhere for years wich is probably correct since the property its sitting on right now is an apple and fruit orchard with a few barns on the property . and ill post a thred in project updates when i get home tomorow , depending on what shapes its in and how good it runs , if it even does , i may sell my willys and keep this scout , otherwise ill turn around and make a quick buck off it . anyways im pretty fuckin excited about it

heres the scout i believe its a 1965 , its all original and has some rust but its not so bad , i really have no idea what my plans are for it as of right now except to clean it up and get it to run , il post up a project update thread with it and what happens with it for anyone who's interested in it , i like it alot and its probably goin to be my next project

OOOh nice looking Cornbinder.... Is that a V8 in there, or an odd looking four? Neat score.

looks like the 4banger in there which was like 1/2 a V8. as far as a road trip in one of those would be neat but with most of them they had 4:27 gears and a top speed of like 50mph. spent a year rebuilding one with my brother 3 yrs ago

My son is working for a restoration shop in Kailua, Hi. They are redoing a Scout II (not my favorite), but it has a factory Turbo Diesel!! That would be awesome. Didn't even know that it was an option. Anyone ever heard of a Turbo Diesel in a Scout. Logan said it was a one year only.

Nice scout. years ago i had a 68 travelall that was lifted 6" and had swampers on it. it drew the old timers out like nothing i had seen before. everywhere we took it there were people telling me stories one of the best was how the guy had to ride one as the local school bus.

nice score.
