About the build:

1979 International Scout ii with a 345, 727 auto, Dana 300 transfer case and Dana 44 front and rear axles. I bought this scout there years ago from a guy. It was a failed project and had been off the road since 2006. Everything was there expect the bumpers, and the ownership and some body panels had heavy rust, but surprisingly the floors were in good shape I started working on it, getting running, changing fuilds, replacing the brakes. I was able to find to nos fenders to replace the rusty ones. That's when I realized there was 2" of Bondo on the passenger quarter panel. The rear bumper is off a newer f150 because that's all I had, I know have a real one but I still run the drive shaft I painted it orange and white with 8 rattle cans so my insurance would insure it. I finally got it road legal in October and I decided to take the scout to Hershey PA. It made it the whole way besides the gas tank falling out ( ratchet straps that back on) Next year I was going up a hill and the rear diff exploded It's been on the hook so much that the tow truck drivers know my name It's been a good truck and getting used to driving with the top off is a experience especially when it always rains
