This will be the start of my rebuild story. I found my Scout on CL. It was sitting in a shop about 2 miles from my house. The guy that had it was going to restore it and he started with a bolt cutter, thank goodness he quit when he did. He did get to cutting the e-brakes, speed-o cable and off all things the throttle linkage. I payed $800 for it. The body is in fair shape, the bed is rusty and it had no fuel tank, or filler neck. He said the motor ran but smoked. The seats were trash and the seats frames had been cut all to hell. The wiring was fair all but the rear end. The half top is ok but has some small rust holes at the bottom on one side and it looks like someone sat on the top, should pop out. I am not going the purest way so there will be some parts that I will have for trade, not much. Things like the wiring and vac wipers to start with. Parts I will be looking for are, e-brake cables, all, scout seats, inside heater duct from firewall to dash.
