    Is this the one with the visor on the LST? Can I rest easy now? Not another unicorn to search for? Got a heard of unicorns I'm looking for so I don't mind having one less. ( : < )

    I believe that was the intent that was misread with this one. Very nice truck that cleaned up even better for sure. Well preserved 'original' condition claims can add a lot of interest and value but those claims can be a big let down for a new buyer if not entirely true. You would think for the money , a LST for it would have been included in the ad to help support some of the selling points.

    This is also considered one of the first Scout 800's, officially it is still a Scout 80, but it is a pilot model for the soon to be released Scout 800 and has many Scout 800 features .

    I'll be seeing the LST before long and will report back. The serial number plate was on the previous sale and the number was listed on this one. The numbers match. It's in a batch of CS from generally the same time period, many of which had turbos.

    I think it's the real deal, with some rather tasteless alterations done by a PO that look easy to change back.

    OK, I've seen the LST on this rig. Real Deal. Built 6/18/65, so it's near the end of Scout 80 production. Shipped to the Denver Factory dealer. Besides the turbo engine, it has the typical 4.88:1 axle ratios and also a Pwr-Lok. It's painted 4298 Apache Gold and it has the dollup stamp and dollup codes. No unusual notations. Again, it's in a batch of turbo dollups sold at this time.
