1971 International-Harvester Scout 800B 4x4 SnoStar

SOLD

Description

It's never too early to start thinking about cold weather and snow, especially if you live in the Snow Belt states. We have a classic SUV at MotoeXotica Classic Cars that is already outfitted for snowflakes and would make a useful addition to most collections.

Made for just eight months to bridge the gap between the International-Harvester Scout 800A and the Scout II, this rarely seen & complete Scout 800B was made in October 1970 at International's Fort Wayne, Indiana (VIN code G) factory. This SUV presents wonderfully with an older, frame-off restoration performed by a professional shop.

Finished in white over yellow the truck's paint and trim, including black and white Sno Star graphics, are in overall excellent order, the bodywork is straight and solid. The chrome front and heavy-duty rear step bumper with a trailer hitch fit tightly to the body. The engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery appears new and the cargo area behind the seats looks great with a full-size spare tire and body-colored wheel.

This Scout rolls on Cooper Discoverer R/T tires, size 235/75R15 at every corner. Each one is mounted to a yellow steel wheel with factory metal caps. The tires are in very good order, the wheels are in good, original condition. In front are Warn manual locking hubs. This Scout rides a 100-inch wheelbase and has a 4,700 GVWR.

Under the hood is a 232 CID inline six-cylinder Power Thrift engine with a rebuilt Holley 1920 single-barrel carburetor. Backing the motor is a Borg-Warner T-39 three-speed automatic transmission and a Dana 20 two-speed transfer case, followed by a Dana-Spicer 3.73:1 rear differential with Powr-Lok. New parts include a thermostat, points, condenser, distributor cap, rotor and spark plugs. The original starter has been rebuilt. Driver convenience features include dual, 10-gallon fuel tanks. Left fuel gauge works while right gauge is inop.

Up front is a Meyer ST-78 Hi-Lo snowplow with new, smoother snow-rolling action. Its plowing width is 65 to 70 inches and a 6.5-foot length. It has 2 factory levers on the dash which are in good working order. The plow can be removed as well.

Inside, the black bucket seats are in very good order. Most of the cabin is body-colored in yellow with a white headliner that is part of the cap. A two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver. A yellow dash, topped with black padding contains a full array of gauges and the yellow metal door liners look great. The center console has two levers, one for the automatic transmission and the other for the Dana transfer case.

The last of the 800 series was the 800B, available for less than eight months, from August 1970 until March 1971, before it was replaced with the Scout II. Other than minor cosmetic details (primarily chrome headlight bezels instead of matte black), it was identical to the 800A. Late in 1970, the Sno-Star package appeared (only with the six-cylinder engine), developed especially for snowplow usage.

Competition to this Scout in 1971 included Chevrolet's K5 Blazer, Ford's Bronco, GMC's K5 Jimmy, Jeep's Cherokee and Toyota's Land Cruiser.

If you've been looking for a classic Binder, this is an excellent candidate. Come by MotoeXotica Classic Cars to check out this Scout but do it quickly because Internationals do not linger here.
