1976 International Scout Restomod
STREETSIDE CLASSIC CARS PHOENIX
Phoenix, AZ 85204
When you try to define this custom build based on a 1976 International Scout, you'll see everything from a stroker V8 with a blower on top to serious 4x4 components. So is it a dune buggy? Hot rod? Whatever you want to call it, you already know it's awesome.
This is a full custom machine that's out to get noticed. After all, why do you think they painted it such a bold yellow? But this build also has function within the flare. That's why the diamond plating on the front, back fenders, and rear not only looks good, but also adds to the robustness of this ride. And that custom tubular front end is not only a fine push bar, but also the mounting point for the headlights and triple set of spotlights. The soft top is part of this custom build with a cool yellow stripe running the full length. And while you're checking that out, you'll also spot more lights so you can see the trail ahead, as well as a full air horn setup so they can really hear you coming. There are tow hooks bolted to the frame up front and a proper trailer hitch with plug in the rear so you're ready for the wilderness. And because a true go-anywhere machine means also using it on the streets, this one is road legal in most (if not all) areas, right down to the well-placed turn signals.
This is a build meant to be shared with the world, and so the interior continues the exterior's theme of bold yellow and plenty of bright diamond plating reinforcement. The full interior is meant to be durable, right down to the vinyl on the seats. But that also doesn't mean missing out on comfort, thanks to high-back buckets up front. There's even cup holders, grab handles, and a CB radio. And because this is built to really be driven, you get nice driver upgrades, like the grippy sports steering wheel and a full AutoMeter gauges package, including large tach.
The air grabber peeking out of the hood already tells you you're going to love the power. And the investment in the full polished presentation on this one means you'll probably want to run without the hood any time it's ready to show off. More than just style, this motor has substance. It's a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8, and if that wasn't already enough muscle, there's also a Weiand 144 blower on top. This is a professional build by Triple R Performance. There's only about 3,000 miles on the engine and less than 6,500 miles on the whole build " so now you know why it looks so good! Plus, it has extra go-fast goodies, like a Holley 700 CFM four-barrel carburetor and Hedman shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. And as you keep digging, you'll spot the right supporting component, like serpentine belts, MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator. Front disc brakes and a three-speed automatic transmission with a shift kit mean nice performance on the road. But features like the two-speed 4x4 transfer case and Mickey Thompson Baja tires let you know the fun doesn't stop when the pavement ends.
Complete with build receipts, this is one-of-a-kind and absolutely cool. So don't miss what could be your only chance at this full custom build. Call today!!!
