For Sale: 1972 International Harvester Scout II in Berkley, Michigan

Vehicle Description

Before the Bronco there was the Scout! What I have here is a 1972 International Harvester Scout II in fantastic running condition! This head turner was ordered directly from IH by one of the engineers that helped design and build the Scout II. I have all the original sale paperwork including the option sheet filled out by original owner, a magazine from the time covering the Scout, and all the manuals/books that came originally. The truck was treated as his baby until it was passed along to his son in the early 90s. At that time it was painted the majestic black cherry color that you see today. At the same time as the paint was redone, the 345 motor was rebuilt with an early 90s 392 top end. The son’s vision was to make the truck look and drive as if it was still being manufactured in the 90s, and spared no expense doing so.


I picked up the truck from St. Louis in 2016 and have only cruised the truck a few times a month in the summer season. The mileage is 72,600. It spends most of its spare time in an attached garage with a cover on it. I have made some tasteful updates and modifications while owning the truck that make it more fun and comfortable for cruising. Mods/Upgrades are listed below:
