    I stumbled upon this Scout while doing the daily Craigslist search.
    The ad was terrible, the Scout looked rough, and the seller's price was too high and it was firm.
    He was a little difficult to communicate with and after I got some more pics, I decided to see if I could make a deal on it.
    After a phone call and a promise to send a postal money order deposit, the Scout was mine.
    My buddy, Dawson (on here as well) and I woke up Saturday morning and drove out to Conroe, TX in the freezing weather.
    After about 5 hours of driving we arrived at the Scout that was pulled out and ready to be loaded as promised by the seller.
    We exchanged cash and paperwork and 30 minutes later we were gone.
    The Scout 80 is a Champagne series, came with the original owner's manual, LST, and dealer pamphlet.
    The engine turns over easily by hand.
    I plan on keeping this one for myself. It's getting harder to find anything around here and I miss having a Scout.
    So, here's a first shot of it while still on the trailer.
    Should be a fun one!

    Hello Randall,

    Congratulations on your find.

    Can't wait to see some more pictures and to see you build this one out.

    Thank you!
    The day was fully IH.
    We started the trip knowing that I'd be selling my 1964 Cub Cadet 100 garden tractor to a man in Lake Charles, LA.
    I delivered it to an easy spot and after meeting him I felt good knowing that it was going to a Cub person. He showed me pictures of his other Cubs and said that he planned on restoring mine. I recently purchased a 1968 IH Cub Cadet 124 from the original owner and didn't want the tractor thing to get out of hand, so it was time for the 100 to go.
    Here's the pic from my ad.
    Don't let the hood decal fool you, it was switched at some point. All numbers and signs point to it being a 100.

    It appears, after looking in my International Scout Encyclopedia, that the Scout is a 1965 painted Champagne Mist code 1501

    It's a little rough. The seat covers are there, but not usable, the door panels are there, but too rough to use. The headliner will be able to be salvaged.
    The floor pans are incredibly solid as is most of the truck.

    I just want to get it road worthy for now. I plan to keep it as stock as possible, but I want it to be dead reliable like my Travelall.
    I'll start with:
    oil change
    pre-oil
    general cleaning
    tune up
    fuel system cleaning
    clutch
    brakes
    tires
    I plan to try to straighten the damage on the rear with help from Dawson and leave it the best I can get it w/o using body filler. Dawson has a contact that can probably straighten the rear bumper too.
    I am not going repaint it, but I will do rustproofing and undercoating as needed.
    I just bought a fresh can of PB Blaster that will be emptied on hinges, latches, and all the other moving parts.

    Awesome find Randall did you get enough out of the travel all to pay for this? If so excellent job if not good job making your woman believe you did can't wait to see it come together I'm still looking for a travel all I can afford closer to me or maybe I'll win the lottery and buy the best one I can find or maybe a scout you never know the IH bug bites hard and deep it's like lime disease only worse

    This was purchased with the Cub Cadet money that I got the morning I set off to pick up the Scout.

    A little more progress today:
    I cleaned out the inside
    removed the driver's side fuel tank and cleaned the area of dirt
    cleaned and painted the two rear wheels
    removed the grill, tried to straighten it and failed.
    removed the front bumper, I found a local place that straightens them and will bring it there for an estimate
    I found that the rear bumper was welded to the brackets at some point, so I'll be doing some cutting in my future

    Tonight I had about an hour so I:
    • Installed a new used grill
    • Pulled the front right wheel for painting and pulled the drum while I was there (when I'm ready to do brakes that one will come off easy)
    • Fixed the glove box latch
    • Removed the front right broken turn signal and aluminum housing (I have an extra in my shed)
    I had the LSP come out and do their inspection Friday, so I hope to have the title stuff straightened out next week. I've got all my papers, so we'll see what happens.

    Awesome find!
    Would you be able to take some pictures of the interior and headliner if possible?

    Thanks!

    Thank you!
    Here is a bad pic of the headliner that I took right after I got it. It has the front piece too.
    I don't have any other interior photos right now.

    Awesome!
    I'm trying to build up a folder for when I go to restore my travel top. The foam is still there on mine but all the fabric is missing. It's also been hard to come across an original champagne interior for refernece.

    Thanks!

    Today I tackled a few more small jobs:
    • oil change with new Wix filter
    • reinstalled the rebuilt Holley 1904, lubed the choke cable
    • added a ground wire for the battery
    • pulled the clutch master cylinder and hard line (I'll have to replace both)
    • replaced the ignition switch
    I also got my Caswell tank sealer in the mail last week. The OEM tank has some small holes and I'd like to reuse it, so I'll see how the sealer does.
    I wanted to get the pre-oiling done, but I ran out of time.

    I ordered a new clutch master and an OTC tubing bender.
    Product Description Scout 80 800 Clutch Master Cylinder 12327-00
    FORKLIFT MASTER CYLINDER 12327-00. Bore Size - 5/8"
    Brand new with warranty

    I'll probably need a slave cylinder too and will use forklift parts there as well.
