Default 63 scout 80

I have been cruising this forum for a while and I figured I should post up a little bit about my Scout and some pictures.

My grandfather is an IH enthusiast and bought me this Scout about 11 years ago when I was 14 to fix up I drove it all throughout high school in the rusty shape it was and then parked it. After I joined the navy I needed a second truck for my wife and I and I figured instead of compromising for a car I would fix up the Scout so I had my uncle do the sheet metal repair and paint it and I have since done many other thing to it including rebuilding the engine and rewiring the truck. I love my Scout and most weekends I enjoy working on it.

I love this forum as it is a reliable source of reliable information and has always been helpful thank you all!

This is how it looked all through high school

Here is the engine post rebuild it ran fine but looked horrible and burned and leaked everything. I also cleaned and painted the entire front end while I had the motor out.
