For Sale: 1980 International Scout in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1980 International Scout II represents the final year for the Scout. So you have history and rarity within this already desirable classic and capable V8-powered 4x4.

Classics always look great in red or black, and so we love seeing this Scout II in red AND black. It's a cool style where the base red is the canvas for the full black stripe package, the blackout grille, black bumpers, the black grille, and the black removable hardtop. It's an attractive coordination that turns heads when you're out driving it, but the overall finish makes sure no one will ever think this is a trailer queen. But the way the panels line up and the doors close with confidence tells the full story of overall quality. And don't forget the "U" in SUV is for Utility, and everything from the tall 4x4 stance to the tow ball on the steel bumper reminds you of that.

You can remove the roof for cool open-top cruising. And one look at the interior, and you know you'll want to do just that. The two-tone style continues inside where the black interior has red accents on the doors. And the black upholstery with red piping and contrast stitching is a particularly nice custom detail. This was built to be driven, and so the overall condition is easy to open up to the world without worrying about additional dust or wear. Plus, there are the right features in place you want for driving, like the working heater and under-dash auxiliary readouts.

International's own 304 cubic-inch V8 means a unique presentation, and this optional motor has also been given good investments. You can spot the newer carburetor, master cylinder, fuel tank, and aluminum radiator. So this V8 warms up to be quite a stout powerhouse. There are nice anytime-driving features, like a stout Torqueflite 727A three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front. And because the reputation and presentation make this Scout great for the trails, you have a two-speed 4x4 transfer case, beefy tires, a lifted stance, a solid-looking chassis, and deep treads on M/T tires.

We like the overall presentation that this one has right now. It's clean and distinct with the right features to have some 4x4 fun. And you also know the market for these Scouts is continuously quite strong. So if you make investments in the paint, gauges, or any detail that you want to restore, it often pays dividends down the road. That's what makes this one such an attractive classic SUV.
