It has been some month since I have made a meaningful post here, or, any updates on my 800a Scout and I though I would share where all my recent clock cycles/$$$$/etc have been going to. Back in 2014, I decided that I had no intent on making my offroad 1962 Scout 80 a driver and figured I needed some way to tow it, which I explored here in this thread: http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/...ler-can-a-scout-800-realistically-tow.123824/ In the grand scheme of things, and as a result of the comments made to me in that thread, I decided that I had all the following going against me/my 800a for use as a tow vehicle; * short wheel base * lifted 4x4 vehicle * driver with limited towing experience. some type of plan B was in order. Some time later, a (Binder) club member had a co-worker who's father-in-law (follow all that?) was getting up in age, couldn't drive much anymore and was interested in parting with his 1993 Dodge Ram D350 Dually. I went out and looked at it, drove it but could not agree on a price. Plus, wasn't sure what I was getting into. Vehicle was just a laundry list of extremes. Low miles (94K) for a Cummins 6BT vehicle. Water based paint had already peeled off in sheets as common of most vehicles of that day. Interior was covered with a thick Mexican blanket day 1, and seats were in immaculate condition. Estimate that vehicle had never spent a night under a roof, i.e. outside for the last 25 years. Also, does the vehicle look to be sitting low? It is, all due to that tool bed. Home made from 1/4" steel. That tool bed weighed more than the truck. Took (2) winches to ultimately cut and lift off. Anyway, this vehicle sat for almost 2 years, ultimately, waiting for me. The original owner had passed. Not only a great guy to visit with, but a Korean war veteran. Family shared pics from funeral. Army provided him a fancy military funeral, 21 gun salute and all. Terrible way to acquire a vehicle, but, summer of 2017, it is now mine.
