    That is definately the most beautiful customization of a Scout that I have seen. As said previously, if only it were orange. I can't wait to see what comes next Tuesday! I don't know how you can due anything better than this '77, but look forward to watching the next one's progress.

    It was all along, and still is, owned by a customer. It isn't for sale...besides, I imagine his son would object to it's sale, anyhow!
    I don't know what it would be worth, if it were to be sold.

    I guess other than the staff at Scoutco, I probably saw this truck in more stages of restoration than anyone. The finished product is nothing short of spectacular. I have had Scouts apart and done a good bit of work on them myself and know whats involved in putting one back together. But I have done nothing even close to the quality craftsmanship that's in this Scout. Exemplary work by exemplary people.
