    Re: Scout Sighting

    Actually, I saw that Scout from "The Rundown" for sale not too long ago on ebay. I did a search on ebay to try to find the auction and link it in here, but it didnt come up. IIRC it sold for around 2200 - 2500.

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but the one on ebay had yellowish emblems on the doors and what looked like rust on top of all the fenders. In the auction they said that was a process they do to make it looked "aged", I just hope my memory is working! :confused: Amazing what they can do in movies to make it appear it was crushed. It was in great shape too, did a lot of maintenence on it before the film.
    Anyway - just my .02

    Re: Scout Sighting

    I read threw most all of this thread and don't think this one was mentioned.
    There is a black Scout II in the movie Desperando with selma and antonio which actually gets shown quite a bit and in the last scene they drive off into the sunset in it.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    Ok late 70's early 80's crap tv fans. There was a SII prominently featured in an episode of CHIPS. The bad guys mounted a laser type device in the bed of a scout and used it to rob passers by. Now that's a quality use of an IH product. FYI the fant ad features a bronco, not a scout. Although a nicely restored dark blue scout II was featured in an Eastpack (backpack) commercial.And we can't forget jurassic park II.

    Just finished watching the movie Rundown. There is a Scout in the last part of the movie. It was the same one that was listed on EBay a couple months ago.

    Shorty But Goody!!!
    I was watching Trucks! on SpikeTV tonight and they ran an ad for Edlebrock. In the middle of the ad there is some footage a a '76 SII set up on at least 35s with a Big ol' front bumper and winch spinning its tires with all abandon up some rocks. COOL AD sad thing is the only thing they really make for us is carbs, daggone it!

    Re: Scout Sighting

    Saw three IHs in Electric Horseman the other night.

    1. Red 80/800 in a yard when Redford is riding the horse, trying to get away from the cops.

    2. 69-75 P/U on the highway while they are driving in the van.

    3. Scout II across the street from the cafe/bus stop when Fonda leaves.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    I'm not gonna look through all of these posts to see if it was mentioned or not, but I have one. In Bad Boys II, near the end, the "Cuban Millitary" has a 72 or 3 Travelall (might be a 1010) they are using to chase down the good guys as they cross the yard of this big estate. Gurillas hanging out of the windows, shooting madly at the new H2, (big, bright yellow, and within 50 feet, yet the never hit the tires or the driver. Go figure?) that the good guys are driving. It only lasts for a few seconds before it lands in a fountain. :mad: :(

    Probably not hurt bad, it wasn't jumped or anything. But it sure bugs me when they do that kind of thing. :mad: Why can't the use Suburbans and Blazers for the impact parts, and use the IH for the rest? They are junk, cheap, and found everywhere. What's one more dead Chevy anyway?

    Saw a movie called "Band of the Hand" about an Indian Nam vet who trains some street punks to fight crime. He drives a convertible IH pickup with a goofy yellow camo job.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    Don't know if it was mentioned before but I saw an episode of "Walker, Texas Ranger" and there was a faded red Scout II with a light bar on the roof. There were some bad guys selling immigrants from Mexico as slaves. Chuck Norris was undercover talking to some bad guys and it was right behind him.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    I did a real quick "look over" of this thread and didnt see it mentioned, and yes its a chick flick, but the guy that plays Dolly Partons husband in Steel Magnolia's has a Scout 800. Shows it a few scenes, and then again at the end for about 2 whole minutes :D

    My wife also mentioned to me that she saw a Scout 80 / 800 in a documentary covering Woodstock. Looking at the cable menu, it comes on the 16th at 4:30 am on Cinemax E, and at 7:30 on Cinemax W. They were interviewing someone on the street, and it passes by in the background.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    There's a new TV show out called Summerland. In the show one of the characters drives a Scout II. That Scout belongs to my brother Mike. I tried watching the show a few times in hopes of seeing my bro's Scout on national tv but the show is too boring for me. If the show gets good reviews they plan on using my bros rig as long as the show stays airing.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    I was watching the Andy Griffith show the other day - it was the episode where the gold truck comes through going to Fort Knox and ends up being a decoy, called "Black Day for Mayberry", well, the armord truck is a '59 B140(?). has several good shots of it and it sounds great.

    Re: Scout Sighting

    There is a movie called "Thunder Heart" with Val Kilmer that came from a book and in the book a Scout is mentioned a few times. I didn't read it but my mom thought I should know about it. I bug the crud out of people when I'm watching a movie because I have to rewind and pause for all the IHC's.
