I've owned this Scout for 20+ years - restored it (frame up late 1980s) - now it's 20 years older (and so am I) it's time to pass it on to someone with the time and inclination to actually use it for it's originally intended purpose, off-roading.
1967 Scout 800 4 X 4 (Warn hubs) – running – not currently tagged
304 cid engine (rebuilt about 25K miles ago)
4 speed trans (from a Scout II) 1,2,3 and ‘granny low’ (PTO capable)
Single stick transfer case 2WD - 4WD High – 4WD Low – Neutral (from a Scout II)
Aftermarket steering wheel
Side facing, folding ‘jump seats’ with seat belts (Toyota style) in the rear
“Cropped” hardtop w/sun roof
Soft top (originally Scout II – no modifications to soft top, but hardware has been altered to work on an 800)
Pierce electric worm gear winch with 12,500 # capacity and about 100’ of cable – (taken from a tilt bed tow truck auto wrecker – very powerful - wired to operate from inside but has plug for remote external control)
Cab/Bed partition (not installed)

Vehicle has the standard spare tire mount that ‘folds’ with the rear tail gate but I added an after market swing gate spare carrier before I got the real McCoy. The brackets are still mounted but the swing gate is not on the vehicle – both go with it.
Lots of extra parts: valve covers (stock), 2 oil pumps, stock dist., water pump, clutch disk and other stuff.
The BAD news:
Some rust in the rocker panels – not bad, but worth mentioning; doors not aligned (I replaced the hinges but I’m not a body man); Right tank filler tube was leaking removed it, never replaced it; some of the body to frame struts are suffering and would need to be replaced/repaired; Speedo needs new internal cable.
