Default High Schoolers Budget Custom Scout II Build

Here is the start to my full frame off budget minded "resto-mod" 1976 Scout II Terra build. This Scout came with no axles and sat in a field sitting on the leafsprings for a long time.

This Scout came with a 304, T19 Close, and Dana 20. I won't be using any of that.

I plan on rebuilding a 345 mated to a NV4500 and a NP241. SOA (Spring Over Axle) conversion. Will be using a 74/75' Pickup/Travelall front Dana 44 (will be narrowed and turned of course). Rear will be a plain-jain 44. Hydra-boost brakes, lockers....etc...

The frame was very tweaked. The front main cross-member was smashed and the rear cross-member was buckled and twisted. Right rear end cap smashed. All of which will be fixed and repaired.

What it looked like on the trailer. Fairly straight body. Minus the back section. Even had the cool winch bumper.




Unloading it proved to be a challenge since it lacked tires.


Sketchy jack stand operation.




Tear down operation, of course it rained non-stop throughout the whole teardown.
