Default 1977 International Harvester Scout Diesel

1977 International Scout Traveler Converted to Terra style. Lots of work has gone into this rig over the past couple of years. Started out as a very solid southern truck and went uphill from there. For complete details and photos throughout the restoration, send me an email for a link.

- Any rust was cut out and replaced with new sheet metal, filler was only used to smooth out the body after welding
- All body panels removed in order to prevent rust in the deeper layers and to perform a proper paint job
- Inner fenders painted with heavy duty implement paint
- Wheel wells undercoated
- Entire interior coated with heavy duty implement primer, then coated with bed liner
- Coated and blocked several times using urethane 2k high build primer
- Painted with candy red metallic base coat, followed by several coats of clear. Wet sanded, buffed, polished, and waxed.
- Top painted with bright white heavy duty implement paint
- Edges of panels and door jambs were painted before reinstalling body panels
- Dana 44 axles front and rear were rebuilt and coated with POR15. Front brakes, including calipers, are new.
- New u-joints in front axle shafts and in front and rear driveshafts
- Skyjacker 4" lift, D&C Extreme HD lift shackles, Skyjacker shocks
- Nissan SD33 diesel (non-turbo, turbos were only offered in 1980) runs like an old diesel should
- T19 4 speed manual
- Drives like a 30+ year old lifted truck
- Door weatherstripping replaced
- Classic Goodyear mud terrain tires on freshly painted white wagon wheels. Have some cracking from age, but all hold air and look fantastic. Tread is like new.
- Oil and filter just changed

What it needs:
- A voltage regulator (currently runs battery dead overnight)
- Interior work if you're picky (steering wheel is blue, dash and door panels are green, bench seat is tan)
- A stereo and speakers
- Probably could use a tune up (injectors cleaned, new fuel filters, new glow plugs, etc...) I haven't tended to these items during my ownership, so they should probably be gone through.

Asking $8000.

Any interest in a motorcycle trade? I have a 2007 hayabusa with a lot of custom work done. If yes, pm me.
