1980 International Harvester Scout Diesel Traveler with a Nissan sd
33t motor. It is not a Scout II (it has a 10' longer wheel base).
Way more like an old school Suburban as far as interior room goes.
It drives like it is new, no drift, no problems. 101 hp with turbo,
4k plus pounds, you can do the math. It's more like a tractor than
anything. It will go up the side of a mountain with the gearing.
Had this redone as a daily driver. It was not a pebble beach
restore by any means but this Scout is better than 99% of the
garbage floating around for a 1980. It had a frame off restore in
2011. Since then have only managed to put about 1k miles on it. It
has been garaged and driven regularly, just not any great distance.
It has a few dings from being in the garage, gravity is not your
friend when it comes to overhead storage. It was completely bed
lined when it was redone and should last through the next nuclear
war. It was sprayed with single stage paint before it was made
popular by the boys and girls at Toyota and Subaru. So here is the
laundry list of what else has been done. -Body removed down to
frame, taken to bare metal and everything above the frame was bed
lined. Including the inside of the doors. Then resprayed with
single stage desert tan and black. -All pumps and external
accessories rebuilt including power steering, alternator, turbo,
the power steering rack, new water pump -All brake lines and fuel
lines were replaced -Brakes all the way around all replaced, disk
in front drum in rear -Hubs rebuilt -Exhaust delete for the 90
degree bend right after the turbo. Reduces stock restriction, runs
cooler temps and increases power -Egt gauge added -Fuel tank
removed and cleaned -Motor redone about 3 years ago. Head sent to
diesel cast out west. They made it a masterpiece. Filled all the
cracked pre comb chambers and literally made a work of art out of
the head. -Pistons, rings, bearings, all redone. Motor runs like a
