Hello all, Totally new to IH and 4x4 builds in general. I know little about scouts (Just what I read here) and am exited to tap all the knowledge here to help me through this new project. I picked up this 1966 (I think) Scout 80 last month from a farmer near my house. History on it is unknown. Very little rust on it as it was sitting in a barn in temperate Nor-Cal climate for the last 30ish years. It appears to have some sort of V8 engine, but the make is unclear due the entire engine bay being encased in the largest RAT NEST I have ever seen! The interior is complete, but also home to a large rat family. Looks to have the original trans and t-case (not sure what make or model). Front axle looks like a Dana, rear is a really narrow AMC (I think). Ill post more photos as I take this beast apart. Can anyone help with making sense of the VIN tag?
