International Harvester Scout II – East 18th Street, NYC

August 10th, 2009 by Ian

Scout 1

The Scout was International Harvester’s answer to the CJ or Civilian Jeep. It offered up all the bare bones appeal and off road ability you could handle albeit in a streetable package that was comfortable for everyday motoring. Unlike the Jeep and similarly intentioned Geländewagen, both of which started life as military vehicles, the Scout was engineered from the ground up to be a road going passenger vehicle. In fact, the Scout and Scout II were among the pioneering SUVs that contributed to America’s love affair with the species.

    Great vehicle. A real iconic beauty.

  • I can not believe it! I am restoring a yellow 1980 Scout and did a Google search for yellow Scouts to get an idea of what I want for a front bumper and I came across these pictures. THIS IS MY SCOUT! She lives in Maine now and her name is Buttercup. So now I am curious about her previous life in New York. Do you know any details?
