A classic 4x4 like this 1972 International Scout II 4x4 will always grab your attention for its distinct style that didn't follow The Big Three. And since distinction is the big part of the appeal here, this one also has a sleeker exterior, a custom interior, and proper V8 power.
The gray paint on this one is a terrific upgrade. It makes this classic look as sturdy as granite, and that's what an International Harvester was all about. After all, these were often sold alongside industrial equipment. This rugged attitude is furthered by the upgraded front bumper, classic Ramsey winch, tall 4x4 stance, and a rear bumper with a tow hitch and electric plug. But there's a nice feeling of added style here, too. After all, the paint was only applied in 2019, and so it has a modern finish and smoothness. And there are cool little details, like how the white grille matches the removable hardtop. So while this is a sturdy-style SUV, it all makes for a great sunny day cruiser.
The first thing you'll notice about the interior are the seats. The gray has a premium appeal with its full custom pattern stitched into the durable vinyl. There are custom diamond-stitched door panel inserts and a matching full headliner for the hardtop. Even the dash pad was upgraded to coordinate and the steering wheel was painted gray. So it shows a solid investment in keeping this International Harvester a unique machine. But you also never lose the sense of a well-made American classic. There is an understanding that this one knows how to get to work in everything from the feeling of the shifter to the full liner paint protecting the interior and cargo area.
International's own 304 cubic-inch V8 means a unique presentation with the bold red block, and it also provides plenty of torque. The V8 is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission for easy driving. Plus, the power steering and power brakes add to this classic cruiser feeling. Of course, the Scout's two-speed transfer case and added lift in the stance remind you that this is a useful 4x4.
You may find areas to improve, like adding back the trim, replacing some caps, or adding a stereo. But overall, this Scout II is the right mix of rugged vintage appeal and some distinct modern flair. That's why you know this is the one you need to take home. Call today!!!
