Description
A 1976 International Scout II Rallye is already an interesting treat. But when you see an exciting example that gives you V8 power, an A/C interior, and a cool pickup body (while still retaining the removable hardtop) you know you're looking at something truly special that won't stick around here long.


We love International Harvester Scouts a little more than the other convertible 4x4s out there just because you know they represent old school toughness. After all, you had to get .....
them from the same dealer that was selling robust industrial equipment. And this one seems to represent that feeling perfectly. It looks like a rugged machine with its tall stance, trailer hitch rear bumper, and a rugged front bumper with bull bar, KC lights, and integrated winch. The full truck bed has been given liner paint to keep it useful, and the full roll bar with extra KC lights adds both style and substance. Even the removable hardtop was given added robustness thanks to its liner paint coating. More than just usefulness, they made an investment in flair. The burnt orange paint is a more modern respray, and so it has a clearcoat finish that loves to radiate in the great outdoors. And the full stripe package of this Rallye edition has a cool style and it coordinates with all the other black accents of this truck.


The interior is a well-done mix of vintage and new. After all, those high-back bucket seats have the kind of bolstering that no one was giving you in the 1970s, but they still left a classic-style jump seat in the middle. The stitching on the new seats gives this a nice intricate pattern, and they even upgraded the door panels and dash pad to make the full package look well-integrated. The dash has a vintage look with all the correct gauges, and there's even a classic AM/FM radio there for display. The steering wheel is an upgraded sport unit, but they added a classic Scout center cap to give the modern grip a vintage look. Best of all, this has a dealer-installed air conditioning system, and it's still blowing nice and cold.


International's own 304 cubic-inch V8 means a unique presentation with the bold red block, and it also provides plenty of power on tap. It's a strong-runner that makes a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. The V8 is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission for easy driving. Plus, the power steering, power brakes, and front discs add to this feeling. The Scout's four-wheel drive system is a stout two-speed transfer case that connects to Dana axles at both ends. So, while this might look like a great original vehicle for Sunday cruising, just know that this one also has the right combo for true 4x4 toughness. But no matter where you drive it, this old-school 4x4 draws a crowd. In fact, Scouts hit that perfect sweet spot where they are not a common sight, but there were enough produced that you don't have to worry about finding spare components.


You've always admired that cool adaptability where this Scout is just as comfortable out camping in the wild, as it is as a convertible cruising the boulevards. So when you can find that in a rare Rallye pickup, then you know you have to act fast. Call today!!!
