    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.

    Just think how many hours it took to drive 50,000 miles, or are they kilometers? 427 & no overdrive, it ain't Jessie Combs daily driver.

    Very nice!

    50 thou is in miles. (USA model)

    It has overdrive, but still... good point about engine hours.

    I'm pretty happy about the purchase and got it way below current market value.

    So one for the 3 spd standard, one to engage 4 wd, one for the overdrive and one for the power diff lock? Better be careful grabbing knobs in the middle of the night after a few brews...

    I would say that to Lis it's priceless. I like the idea of the '64 on the late frame. I would kinda like a '57-'59 Ford on a late frame. Had a '59 250 for awhile years ago, first year of factory Ford 4X4... I think. Turned out somebody else thought it was worth 3 times what I paid for it.

    I still have my first tractor, a 1950 Farmall Cub I got at age 9, My first Jeep, a 1947 CJ2A I got at age 13, (though #2 son has "borrowed" it at present). I have a desire to own another Jaguar XKE roadster.
    Unless I fall unexpectedly into vast wealth, I'll settle for a model. The 1968 I had in 1976 seemed too expensive to freshen up. It had a hard life before I bought it. Worst was some butcher had done a Cesarean on the transmission. Left the unibody tunnel weakened. I sold it & have regretted selling ever since.

    In my opinion, it doesnt matter what the price was. If you can afford it and it makes you happy, who cares what others think or say. You only live once and you cant take it with you. Enjoy it.

    Probably sold new for less than $3000. No argument, that was a very good price. A dollar went farther in the early sixties. You gonna drive it, or show it?

    Re: WTB IH Scout 80

    The plan today is to deal with these wimpy tailgate chains scratching the paint ...





    A quick Google search shows aftermarket replacements from $100 a pair to NOS OEM for $500. Lol. That's not gonna happen.

    I only posted that pic with the drain holes thinking someone would point out the fact that I overlooked it. Never thought the opposite would happen.
