Original Scouts

Today not many Scout owners own a Scout that is completely stock, meaning an Original Scout. Therefore we will now start presenting a few of these rare beasts.
The Scout presented below resides in Switzerland, near Zurich. His owner Kuno was so kind to let us use pictures and captions from his own photo gallery, showing the Scout from all angles and commenting some of the Scout's characteristics. (Picture sizes are around 100-140kb)

Original 1978 International Harvester Scout II

Green, big, strong and quite old but in perfect condition. Everything in its original state; an absolute number match. Including all literature that was delivered together with the car. Just look at the QA sticker on the driver side window applied in production.

Built in December 1978, first hit the road in April 1980. Since then only 29'000 km. Was first the exhibition car of IH in Zuerich and then mostly used to set boats in the Lake and now and then some towing of cars. Was sold because the owner had no use for it anymore and needed the space in the garage.
