• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

1965 IH Scout 80 4x4

Less than 30,000 miles. Recent inspection and is driven for fun every once in a while. It is nearly impossible to find a Scout with this little rust for this price. Video:

List of upgrades/repairs: New tires and rims w/ full-size spare (matching rim), Engine tuneup, New Weber Carburetor, New performance clutch master cylinder , New clutch slave cylinder, New stainless steel clutch slave cylinder hose, New front and rear bumpers (original rear bumper is still installed, but the new matching rear bumper comes with the vehicle), New Crawler Proven Technology CPT suspension, New front disc break kit, Repaired rear drum breaks, All electrical wiring and lights works (some of it is original and some of it is new. There is a heater that I have disconnected. I have no idea if it works), New ignition switch, New fuel pump, New fuel line hose w/ inline fuel filters, New gas tank fuel filler neck and Gas caps w/ flange, New seats and settles, New front driveshaft and U-joints, Large tool box in the back to lock up anything you don’t want walking away.

Downsides: No top, Doors are included (will take some work to reinstall), Parking break works but needs to be adjusted, The Scout 80 is a lot like a tractor that can drive 75 mph.

In El Paso, TX. $8,800. Text me at 903-292-9416 for more information and videos. I am willing to deliver the vehicle.

Looks like this is a Red Carpet Special. The plastic dash defroster cover and red stick shifts are a dead giveaway.

Hi, Samuel. Mind if I ask what size tires/rims you have on that? I have a '65 and that's the look I'm going for. I bought mine recently and it has some old mud runners on it. -- Looks like from the walkthrough vid that they're 31" x 10.5"?
