1979 International Harvester Scout

This is a NO RESERVE auction, there is no Buy it now price. It takes time, money and effort to post on here, so serious buyers onl, please!
This is a pretty original old scout, it is "2 owner" on paper, the last one (on paper) owning it since the late 1990's! Its been off the road and a project off and on since then, and is now running and driving once again!
The truck was last registered 1997, and parked because the shifter cable had melted against the exhaust manifold, a common problem.The cable was replaced, and moved away from the exhaust. Some of the other new parts are the brake master cylinder, wheel cylinders, soft brake lines, fuel lines, gas tank and sender, spark plugs, wires, coil, fuel lines and other mechanical bits. New 31 inch all terrain tires have just been installed, they still have the stickers on them. A new turn signal switch was also just installed.The floors are in good condition, there are a couple small patches in the foot wells, floor has been covered in bedliner for protection and ease of cleaning. The truck has been repainted in the original mint green colo, reproduction style vinyl graphics grace the side panels. Seats were just proffessionally redone in a close match to the original color, but in a nicer quality material, they look and feel nice!The doors close with a solid thud, the body is pretty nice too, no major damage that I have found. Odometer Shows a little under 59000 miles, its probably accurate but can't verify. The original jack is still under the hood, all the water and overflow bottles are still there, even all the emissions stuff looks like its all still there!
This scout has the 304 v-8, auto transmission, power steering, power disc brakes, 60/40 front bench/ rear seat, roll bar, removable top, wagon wheels, 4 wheel drive, locking front hubs. The original AM radio is still in the uncut dash!
This is a pretty solid Texas truck that has been off the road for more than half its life, so its probably in better condition and lower miles than the majority out there. Having said that, it is still over 40 years old and may need some more adjustments/tinkering/finishing before driving too far, It is not a new toyota, but it is a simple beast that is fun and easy to work on, if you are into that type of thing!You are bidding to OWN the scout, not the right of first refusal therefore the $500 deposit is due at the end of the auction and is not refundable, you are welome to ask questions or set up a time to come see it and I will do my best to accomodate you. Texas title in hand. Thanks for looking!
