Vehicle Description

1978 International Harvester Super Scout (SSII), a three-owner truck with just 62,000 original miles. All SSIIs were fitted with plastic door inserts, fender flares, plastic grille, roll bar, soft top and doors and the special stripe kit that you see on this truck. They were introduced to compete with the Jeep CJ and were campaigned successfully in the off-road racing circuit in the late 70s. Produced in small numbers and only for the 1977-79 model years (and with SSII-specific VIN numbers) they have long been highly sought after by Scout enthusiasts. This SSII was sold new in Athens, Georgia, and was used by the original owner to tow his sailboat to nearby Lake Lanier. The second owner, a friend of ours, purchased it in the mid 1990s and drove it home to Alabama where it remained until 2017 when we brokered the sale to the present Georgia owner. Body is straight and solid with a very original and rust-free underside. One quality repaint in the original color (white) some years ago; correct vinyl graphics were installed in 2017. Interior was reupholstered in marine-grade tan vinyl under present ownership. GRC roll bar provides an added measure of safety with three-point seat belts for both front and rear occupants. The original AM radio remains in the dash, but a bluetooth stereo is hidden in the locking center console. All-weather speakers are mounted to the roll bar. Custom bumpers and a tachometer cleverly mounted in the transmission cover plate were added in period. Optioned with a 304 cubic inch V8, four-speed manual, power steering, power disk (front) brakes and 4wd. Runs and drives particularly well. Service within the last 3,000 miles includes a full tune up with electronic ignition, water pump, thermostat and aluminum radiator, new carburetor, valve cover gaskets and a new steering linkage. Rare original SSII top and doors are included - they could use a trip to the upholstery shop as the windows are in bad shape but the nearly impossible-to-find door frames are in good condition.
