The Scout 800 replaced the Scout 80 in 1965. The new 800 model was built from 1965 to 1968. These models had many improvements in comfort and design, including better instrumentation and heating systems, updated dashboard, optional rear seats, and optional 196 four-cylinder (from 1966), or 232 inline-six. Beginning in March 1967 a 266�ci V8 engine was also offered. Externally, changes were limited to an anodized aluminum grille with a rectangular "International" logo paced on the grille, the IH badge was moved to the hood; the door handles became the button type and the tail gate no longer included the "hooks". The base engine was a naturally aspirated "Comanche" 152 four-cylinder with 93�hp (69�kW), of which a turbocharged version with 111�hp (83�kW) (the 152-T) was also offered. In August 1966 the turbo version was complemented by the bigger 196 which used less fuel with exactly the same power. The 196 motor achieved 20 mpg. The turbo version was dropped in early 1968. The fold-down windshield was eliminated on the 800 (with the exception of a few rare "prototype" 800's), and the vacuum wipers were moved to the bottom of the windshield frame.
Vintage Motorcars is please to present to you this very rare and highly desired 1967 Scout 800 hardtop convertible. This Scout went through a frame up restoration a little less than 3 years ago. The paint and interior are in excellent condition with only minor signs of ware/tare on the body from normal driving. This vehicle has been in Southwest for most of its life and is Rust FREE throughout . All the electrical components work and the 196 4 cyl engine runs great. Both the engine and transmission are in good working order. Feel free to give us a call with any questions you might have.
