A true barn find!
To find a Scout of this age with its original seat upholstery, door panels, dash, flooring is rare. A true barn find. The original 304 V-8 was replaced many years ago with a 345 V-8 from a ’74 Scout ii that the family also owned. The original #20 Spicer 3-Speed automatic transmission remains in the vehicle. A 2-1/2″ Rancho Lift Kit was installed with new polyurethane leaf spring bushings on front and rear leaf packs, upgraded aluminum wheels with BFG AT tires finish off its current look. The original gas tank was replaced with a new fiberglass gas tank. New exhaust system, fuel tank sending unit, fuel line, 4BBL Edelbrock carburetor have been installed on this Scout.
