Available for auction is this 1973 International Harvester Scout II finished in Glacier Blue (6772) over a black vinyl interior. This 1973 example was acquired by the seller from its second owner out of Southern California in March of 2019 and has since received corrosion repair and a glass-out repaint along with new seats, a soft top, brakes, and more. This classic 1973 Scout is now being offered by its seller out of California.
The 1973 Scout II can be distinguished by its vertical 14-bar front grille with chrome trim, and this example is said to have been refinished in its original color of Glacier Blue (6772) along with a new black soft top. According to the seller the floors, rockers, and supporting structures were cut out and replaced with new metal before the glass was removed and the truck was refinished. Additionally, the accompanying hardtop was restored, the doors received new bushings, and the windshield received a new rubber gasket. Accessories include heavy-duty front and rear bumpers, a roll bar, a gas tank brush guard, a spare tire and gas can holder, a Warn winch, and a set of 15″ alloy wheels dressed in Cooper Evolution tires from 2019.
The cabin features new bucket seats upholstered black vinyl along with a custom fiberglass dashboard, new carpeting, a new glove box, and a rear view mirror. The seller confirms all instrumentation and accessories to be fully functional apart from the windshield wipers.
Power comes from a 305ci V8 engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission and a dual-speed transfer case that drives either the rear or all four wheels. The engine is said to have received several new top-end gaskets, a general tune-up, and a new aluminum radiator. The steering has been upgraded with a Steer straight steering brace and the brakes were recently refreshed. The seller reports minor oil leaks when the vehicle is left to sit.
This sale will include a clean title, records, and original owner's manuals.
