Default Andy's 75 Scout 250

Well, this will probably be a slow build but I figured I’d get started on a write up. The plan is to shorten the frame of a 1992 dodge 250 to around 106” wheelbase. Then set the body of a 1975 Scout on it. The drive train will be dodge. Fuel injected 360, 241/205 doubler, Dana 60 front and 60 or 70 rear. The Scout first.

Wonder if it's the same po that I'm dealing with on my 72 yellow Scout. Had same exact type of welded on hitch system. But I wasn't replacing the bumper. So I carefully ground off some welds just so I could drop the skid plate and tank to service it.

I do. I plan to use it to remove the body off the frame. Shouldn't need it for the top. (added Scout to the photo)

I got some good work done on the Scout! I traded my friend some work on his f150 for his help on the Scout. We got the roof, hood and front fenders off!!

Thank you for your interest!!

I have been cutting rusty floor boards and rocker channels out. I'm beginning to wonder if another tub would be less work. I did clearance the fender openings for the larger tires and longer wheelbase.
