So...I sold my business in May and decided to take some time to finally restore my Scout. I bought this 1973 Scout from a guy in Arizona that had it in his barn since his son passed away. He said his son had done some restoration work; however, I am not sure what year it was done. I purchased this Scout for $6500 site unseen and just believed this guy was honest. I shipped it to Indiana for $1340 and drove it off of the trailer when it got here. The condition was exactly what the gentlemen said it would be like. Engine and Transmission pulled and sent to rebuild shop on May 17, 2019/ This is the start of what I had no idea what I was getting myself into. August 22, 2019. Finally, the day has arrived where I was going to start tearing into this. This is when we decided the dash was coming out and I was going to find a new wiring harness. Also, when I figured out this project was going to get very expensive. I went ahead and broke it to my wife that I think I will be into this thing around $30gs. August 28th. Been at it a week now. August 30, 2019. The guy helping me decided to tell me we were going frame off with this thing so here goes. Here is the guy helping me on Sept 9th at Twice As Nice Restorations in Bloomington, IN. Sept. 10, 2019 Ol Dan tells me he really likes how solid this Scout is and of course I had no idea. This is my first resto project.
