    Check with the Scout/IH. Clubs in Washington. Lots of them there for some reason. Don’t forget to include the 800s in your search, they usually have the bigger 4 cylinder, or the later V-8. The bodies are the same, interior changed a wee bit.
    Mine is a 1967. I changed the 4 to a 345 V-8 and the difference is amazing. Upgraded the axles as well.

    Just drove by this place a couple of days ago, right near the Iowa state penitentiary if there is someone there you know

    They had a huge yard full of IH parts - I can't even guesstimate how many

    I know a fellow has a early style, I'll guess '68. It looks good in recent paint, but I'd have to crawl under to say excellent. Yes, it is offered for sale. Vermont is probably too far to travel.

    Re: WTB IH Scout 80

    My cousin, more nearly my sister married a man pretty rough on equipment. He bought one each year, '67,'68,69 .....By the time he had used them a year, they were hammered. What I might take from that is:

    A: They only lasted a year.
    B: They lasted a whole year!!!!

    I think B is the truth.

    Elbert Crosby, the younger generation of E C Crosby & Sons, our local everything store ran the IHC tractor dealership. They bought IH trucks at a discount. I believe his Scout was 1972? He drove it until the rear of the body was falling off from rust. His was a full cab. I cut it behind the driver's seat, plated it off. I put new rockers in. New rear window was plexi that had to be replaced a few times as you couldn't see through it. I built a tiny stepside steel body. I wish I had pictures. I painted it in the original Red & White two tone. To me, it looked nicer than new. He drove it daily until the rear spring hangers came up through the floor, the frame too rusted out.

    In 1973, after the Volunteer Fire Company "Lawn Party" fund raiser was cleaned up on Sunday morning, there was a need to blow off steam. The 4x4 owners were "hooking up". The 3/4 ton pickups (of course) made the most damage, they all pulled on pavement. There were a couple antiques, then Elbert in the Scout & me in the CJ5 were the only ones in weight range. We weren't pulling on pavement, we did gravel. I had him in horsepower, he had me in weight. We spun in one place till both axles were resting on the ground. I'll describe it as a draw.

    I chatted with the fellow that was selling this for his friend.

    The ad on Facebook got zero replies. Listed the ad on Kijiji and Craigslist the next day, got 20 inquiries and sold the following morning for full asking price.

    Okay. The search is over. I spent the day cleaning up my new find and addressed a few little things.

    Quite a few odds and ends I need to do but it is basically rust free and good to go.




    1963 Scout 80
    152 4 cylinder
    Dana 27 front power lock
    Dana 27 rear
    427 ratio
    3 speed manual
    Warn overdrive
    Lots of new parts including brakes

    Imported into BC in 1992 from Cle Elum Washington. (12V71 land lol)

    Sat in a barn 24 years. Purchased and repainted for a Netflix series (A Series of Unfortunate Events) in 2016.

    50,000 miles on the odometer.

    I love it. Even though I used to tease Scout guys and call Scouts "Death sucking on lifesavers". I really wish I would have kept my '63 with the pickup cab.

    I was going to say if I knew you would settle on a KB, I have one in the pasture... but it's not quite as shiny or roadworthy as the one you got. Looks to be in exceptionally good condition.
