    hi, i just bought a neat, complete, old scout.
    it has vin #G178622 stamped into the frame.
    i ordered the LST just now, but have to wait a few weeks before it arrives.
    can anyone tell me:
    1) what year is my scout 800?
    2) what the vin PREFIX digits for my scout MIGHT be?
    i bought it cheap, without a firewall data plate or corresponding information - bill of sale only...
    in process of title ap, BEFORE i start spending restore cash...
    thank you!!!

    @BinderBookie should be able to help you. The Vin's on these aren't like mopar etc. The LST will tell all.

    And post this in the General tech forum. You have this posted under forum Vendor Anything scout.

    This thread would be much more appropriate in the General IH Tech forum, and you could request that it be moved there by clicking the Report button to the lower left of your post.
    Also, without pictures, this is just a fairy tale....and you also need to list your approximate location (under your Personal Details) so members can either lend or request parts, help or commiseration on restorations and repairs... :beer:

    Lastly, if you go to the 80/800 VINs Wanted thread, you may be able to get an approximate idea of the year made by looking through the pages to find a close number. FWIW, the prefix won't tell you very much about the vehicle.
