Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee is proud to present to you this
1969 International Harvester Scout 800A. The Scout always proved to
be a rugged and reliable 4x4 in a time long before the SUV craze.
International Harvester or IH has been building trucks since 1902
in Chicago. The Scout name is synonymous with being not only tough
but a fun truck. The Scout name dates back to 1961 and was produced
until 1980. When the IH Scout hit the market in the early 60's it's
only competition was the Jeep. By the end of the decade Ford, Chevy
and GMC saw the importance in the truck market and introduced their
own adventure machines with the Bronco, Blazer and Jimmy
respectively. Our 69' IH Scout was produced from 1968-1970.
Improvements to the Scout 800A included more creature comfort
features, a slightly revised front end and a badge placement moved
from the grill to the hood. A heavier rear axle with quitter Dana
rear ends were also added for this era of the IH Scout. Under the
hood you will find the durable 196 cu inline 4 cyl mill teamed up
with a 3-Speed manual transmission. As expected, the truck equipped
four wheel drive! The truck also features a white removable steel
top over blue body. A roll bar, rear mounted spare tire, 30 inch
raise white print letter tires and dual gas tanks. Our IH Scout was
originally titled in California resulting as a very nice survivor.
Take a trip back in time when CCR ruled the radio, the Amazin' Mets
were dominating the National League and Man first walked on the
moon. This great little work horse is the perfect time machine to
relive the fun and awe inspiring times of the 1960's.
