Well I'm just about done with my Scout 2 build and we'll as most of you now u just can't have one so. I found this today for $500 she needs work yes but it's going to be a gift for my wife/reason to keep building scouts. So the low down.... I have no clue of the year and yea it's missing some parts but it's a Scout 800a aristocrat.

A little paint and bondo and she'll be good as new. ;-] What does the wife think of it?

Amc 232 I-6 engine. Ihc's 6 cylinder engines were too big and ancient to be viable for the Scout platform. Solution...buy engines from your direct competitor to provide a 6 cylinder option.

A wife who loves scouts - what a find!

What are your plans, resto or mod? You could stay with six in a row; rebuild the original, 258 or even a 4.0 - but that one would require a 'puter.
