304 V8, 3 SPD MANUAL, 4X4 FRONT PWR DISCS, PWR STEERING, AM/FM/CD/PLUG, 3 TOPS!

Owning a convertible truck/SUV is already a cool way to standout, but finding a complete International Scout II with a top for every mood is a way to stay memorable.

International Harvester always had an implied ruggedness because they had more industrial vehicles in their bloodlines than their competitors. The vigor of this 4x4 is furthered by the fire red paint, which is the perfect color for an off-roader and looks like it was built to spend its days in nature. Plus, this one has some nice upgrades like the step-up rear chrome bumper, chrome exhaust tips, and fender flares. That last feature, fender flares, are especially important because they help surround the deep dish 15-inch chrome wheels with meaty tires for good traction on most surfaces. The versatility of the Scout is even further highlighted by the fact it is essentially, a convertible. What makes this one extra special is that it includes three tops to choose from depending on what you want to do that day. There's the full hardtop for the trip in the mountains; the folding full convertible is useful when a rainy day could turn nice at any moment; or when everything is just perfect, the bikini top provides a hint of shade in the open air.

The interior is one you won't find on many Scouts. The special saddle vinyl trim was only available with the optional bucket seats. Everything else is clean and well maintained. There have been some improvements made over the last four decades, such as spraying Rhino Liner on the floor for added durability and easy cleaning (check the included restoration receipts for more info on all the improvements). Amenities are usually a bit sparse on these early utility vehicles, but this one has plenty of upgrades for everyday comfort. This includes power steering, power brakes, heat/defrost, wood grain steering wheel, and a modern AM/FM/CD with provisions to plug in new devices. The center console even has cup holders – a rare find on a 1970s truck. For safety sake, there are seatbelts for all four occupants, and this Scout was upgraded to a full roll bar for added security.

1975 was a great year to own a Scout. The suspension was beefed up for a stronger carrying capacity. This increased gross vehicle weight (GVW) by 20% to 6,200 lbs. Another great feature if you're going to use this Scout for heavy work is the original (numbers matching) optional 304 cubic-inch V8 motor. It is mated to a three-speed manual transmission, and there are front disc brakes for better stopping power. This Scout's four-wheel drive system is the more desirable and stouter two-speed transfer case that was optional over a push-button single-speed system. So while this might look like a great original vehicle for Sunday cruising, just know that it also has the right combo for true 4x4 toughness. In fact, Scouts hit that perfect sweet spot where they are not a common sight since so many were abused and not around in this condition, but also that plenty were produced so you don't have to worry about finding spare parts.

This Scout has a nice amount of original feel, right down to the included owner's manual. You've always admired that cool adaptability of this one being at home in a car show or overnight camping...and now is your chance to own it. Its gathering quite the crowd already in our showroom. Call today!
