Hi, I'm pretty new to scouts and last August I ended up seeing one and falling in love with it. After some further investigation I found out it was built a month into the first scout 2 production year. It also has a 232 engine and a cab top with a bench seat. Just before I started to take it apart with the intention of bastardization I realized that everything is original even the wheels and hub caps, and it has the original line setting ticket taped on. The only obvious nonoriginal thing is a blue tail gate on the green scout, it has lots of dents and a fair bit of surface rust but no rust holes just a crack over the rear fender other than that it is in very good condition. All mechanical parts work perfectly, good heater, choke, throttle, lights. I was just wondering if it would be a better idea just to sell this one and buy another less important one in the future? Or is it insignificant and I should just work to make it my own. Like I said maybe this is a very stupid thing to say/ask or maybe it is a valid point, thanks for any and all replies.
