great commercial, first year Scout, great find.
I'm wondering if this is/was a US commercial, or a commercial for a foreign country?
On the US side, the announcer mentions "miles per hour" and engine power measured in 'HP".
On the foreign side, we are shown a right hand side drive vehicle (which I guess isn't uncommon for US Scouts), but it also shows the driver, driving on the left hand side of the road and passing another vehicle on the right.
Not meaning to turn this into a great mystery, but if anyone has a background for the commercial, or more data, I'm certainly interested.
With some of the scenery, I wonder if this was for the Australian market. The front tag was like Aussie tags I have seen before, and I think that they drive on the left like their parent nation the UK.
thought this would be interesting,sometimes on youtube you find interesting things even when you are not looking for them lol.i thought at one point the driver was going to roll it over,lol,
The video description does say it aired in Australia, so it looks like you are correct.
I'm sorry to revive an old thread but did I just hear him say six forward gears? Because if he did that's a lie, I wish it were true but that's a big fat lie lol
He prolly has ODrive !
Unless I miss my guess the standard 3 speed plus OD does not equal six, even though I am the kinda guy where if I wanna count to 20 I gotta take my shoes off lol, I'm mostly curious if this was just a slip up, the Australian market had more options, or if early on there was a experimental tranny thrown in there too.
3 forward gears in hi range and three in lo range equal six speeds
I suppose that makes sense, still seems a bit like a bait and switch to me though.
That bothers you, but you were OK with "Scout handles like a passenger car." ?
"In excess of 80 mph"
Makes me wonder WHAT IS the terminal velocity of a Scout.
It's wonder they didn't roll it, but then again, there may have been more than a few used up making the commercial.
