    A first year Scout. Pretty basic Cabtop in Blue Metallic but shipped west on Scout Train #2. What shape's she in?

    Rough, but complete. The doors I have have roll up windows though. They seem to be original as the patina and various layers of paint colors match

    Not possible. They had not even started the development of the rollups at the time yours was built, though they were working on the upgrade to the sliders (which appeared in early '62 production built in 'late 61). The rollups didn't appear until August of '62. It's possible and likely yours had them added later but still early in its life so the patina would match. Is it still the original color?

    I found an interesting connection to this Scout. When I entered it into my S80 database, I saw it had a brother; FC13190. It was both 9 numbers earlier on the VIN and 9 earlier on the Line Sequence Number than yours, so it was built the same day and they rolled down the line within sight of each other. It was painted the same color as yours. It went West on the #2 Scout Train. It was a Cabtop as well, but a 4x2. It went to the PNW like yours, but to the Portland, OR, IHC dealer. It's still in existence.

    Very neat! Could tell you more, but the thumbnail is there for page 1 pf the LST but it doesn't show up when you click on it. Like the color.

    Ahhh! Red SR-2-12, the "-12" indicating the powertrain, namely 304 with a T45 4-speed. In the first third of production, or so. Very low engine number. indicating it's one of the very earliest cost-reduced 304A engines. Very cool to see! The 649th 304A engine (1150-501= 649)! I have a couple of others as well.

    Based on the LSTs I have, looks like the 304A entered production between G412414 (LSN D6026) and G412593 (LSN 6074), only 48 Scouts apart. In the G-number era you rely more on the LSN (Line Sequence Numbers) to plot Scouts, because everything built at Fort Wayne used the same pool of VIN numbers, not just Scouts. The LSN is specific to the D-Line (the Scout assembly line). That would put the changeover in mid-May!

    I have only rattle can painted the interior. I have not touched the exterior paint. Pretty sure it is a repaint but jambs ,etc. appear to have not been repainted. The paint is actually pretty rough and worn out in spots but I posted the best looking pic here. I replaced the springs with a 4" inch rough country set and also repair/replaced the floor pans.
    Thanks, Scott

    Vin is FC50003A. Learning more about it. We’ve owned it a little over 15 years. Looks like it came from Wyoming. It was my little brother’s. He parked it because there was some small issue. He was a HS Senior and working like crazy and passed away before he fixed it. Restoring it now 14 years later.

    Look on page 38 of the Scout book. Your Scout is ALMOST in that picture of the 50,000th Scout built! July 18, 1962, near the end of the '62 model year. When researching for the book, I pulled the LSTs from FC5000 to 50002. FC50001 was the "Official" 50,000th Scout and yours was just two numbers away. It has the line sequence number of 9223, so in theory, yours should be 9225. If you have the LST for yours, I'd love to see it!

    Sad story about your little brother but it makes the whole process more meaningful and memorable.

    ^^^^^^^

    That is a great looking LST. Many are all but unreadable.
