1972 International Harvester Scout convertible

Just in time for the Spring!!! Impress your friends and trail riding gang!
this is a completely reconditioned, custom rock crawler that was purchased from a IH clubmember from Kansas that would travel to Colorado mountains for trail riding. ready to drive the best trails - you will be the envy of your gang when you climb the most challenging hills.
She's really low geared (max speed about 50mph) so not that good for highway use - its meant to be a trail rider and cannot be stopped by most obstacles - she climbs like no other! Has Military H1 10ply Humvee tires all four in great shape with lots of tread and no deep cuts (spare will need to be replaced).
Runs great - has a little surface rust but mostly clean - all custom welded rollbars, cages, boat side, bumpers - clean interior.
shipping is buyers responsibility - about 700-800 or so to car carry most of continental US.
now a little bit about the custom work:
This Scout has been to the RMIHR countless times and has been on most all the trails in Colorado and has never skipped a beat. This is a very capable rock crawler, meaning I crawled over rocks, never fast or spinning the tires out. The Scout has seen countless trails, but never abused. It's been like a family member to me. The list of modifications goes on and on and I have forgotten many of them. This was not a backyard build(not that there's anything wrong with that), this truck was built by a friend of mine who builds buggies for the King of the Hammers participants...and I believe the one who got 2nd last year....100k dollar buggies.

Much more.....
This Scout runs fantastic, it's quiet and very easy on the trails to maneuver. It crawls over anything. The suspension is nice and flexy. It's been a joy to own, but I don't have time anymore.
you can call mewith any questions.
Scout has about 1k miles since rebuild.
sold as is, no returns so please, if you are interested, come and see her and test driver her!

question from watcher:
I am interested in the Scout. How is the steering on the street at highway speeds? Also, just wanted to clarify, is it full hydraulic steering or just assist?Also, does it have front turn signals and do all the electrical/lights work? thank you

answer:
not really meant to do highway - you can travel a few miles from one trail to another, but long distances this baby will need a trailer, or the suspension shifted from rock-crusher mode to less flexible highway mode. She is really flexy for crawling over rocks!
lights work and if you mount removable MIRRORS (they need to be removed before trail or they will just be wiped off)
, she can be inspected. electrical is working, brake lights, cb radio, twin fan setup. Winch needs the small hand control to operate (but was never used lol). it is assist on steering.
