AutoHunter Spotlight: International Harvester Scout II

A 350-powered troublemaker


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this frame-off-restored 1980 International Harvester Scout II. It is powered by a fuel-injected 350ci Chevrolet V8 backed by a three-speed automatic transmission with a rebuilt transfer case. Features include bucket seats, modern stereo, alarm system and so much more. Finished in matte gray over a black vinyl interior, this Scout II comes from the selling dealer with a clear Nevada title.

During the restoration six years ago, the exterior was finished in matte gray. Features include black tube bumpers, electric winch with remote, black grille, black wheel flares, SSII door inserts, dual mirrors, six-point roll cage, bikini top and a rear-mounted spare tire.

A set of black 15-inch Mickey Thompson wheels with Warn manual locking front hubs is wrapped in 33 x 12.50-inch R15LT Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac radial tires.

The interior is upholstered in black vinyl. Features include floor-mounted automatic transmission, transfer case with twin-stick shifters, spray-in bedliner and Kenwood AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo system with four speakers, two subwoofers, two amplifiers and locking center console with hidden control tuner.

A set of ISSPRO gauges mounted in a custom aluminum instrument includes a 120-mph speedometer, 6,000-rpm tachometer and readouts for the water temperature, voltage, oil pressure, transmission temperature and fuel level. The odometer reads 7,922 miles, reflecting the mileage accrued since the restoration was completed, though the true mileage is unknown.

Power is provided by a 350ci Chevrolet V8 putting out an estimated 400 horsepower. The crate engine is paired with a H350 three-speed automatic transmission and rebuilt dual-range transfer case. Engine features include Holley Sniper fuel injection, headers, aluminum intake manifold, aluminum radiator with electric fan, HEI ignition and dual batteries.

This Scout features part-time four-wheel-drive with both solid front and rear axles. Braking is provided by power four-wheel discs. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear.

Two sets of keys with alarm fobs come with the purchase of the vehicle.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
