Why? With so many Jeep Wranglers around... No contest... My father bought a new one in 68, we could not wait to get outta that thing. We took it to upstate PA deer hunting once (from South Jersey), followed a Ford pick up, he was going like 70, we were doing 30 up the hills and 90 down, what a P.O.S. it was.

They came in both 4 cyl and V8s, I am guessing you had the 4cyl.

cgrand, any interest in early broncos? roughly the same size and ford parts are easier to come by.

Will do. My last 4 wheel drive is/was a 1940's willys jeep with a flathead 4 so I have not yet upgraded to those fancy new 1960's models yet. We have a few broncos at the camp but some of the guys are running suzuki sidekicks which are about the same size as the old willys jeeps and a lot easier to find parts far than some of the older stuff.

Assuming it will not need to be road legal right?

"road legal" is a moving target in rural arkansas...it would be nice if it could occasionally run 30miles each way to the closest town, on a state highway

Don't worry about road legal with a Scout as it will never complete the trip, as stated a no good POS. The 4 cyl was half of the v-8 a cheap quick gutless engine.

Always loved those old Scouts Chris but they are tough to find in any decent shape...rust. My #1 want is a trail ready FJ-40 Landcruiser.

Good yes, but I feel you are still selling your self short. If you want to put something Really good under your ars, I think nothing is better than the old WWII Willy Jeeps. Add a modest lift kit, seal up the ignition system, snorkel her out, add a pair of 9.5ti Warn winches (one on the front and one on the rear and add a couple of comfortable front seats.......you’ll be going where ALL OTHERS wish they could go!


EDIT:
WHEN THE HELL DID "REAR" BECOME A CONDEMNED WORD AROUND HERE???????????

My 1st 4-wd was a 4 cyl Scout / 3 speed transmission. Hard to keep up with traffic, but the way it was geared it would pull the barn down. I used it as a beach fishing truck and it was great!
Good Luck!

I think they are mostly a collector, cult sorta thing around here. Very very few around though - as Garett said the red, sierra, terra cotta, or whatever you call it plague got most of them.

My first 4wd was a full, I mean full size 70's Jimmy with a 454 gas sucking power plant. I'd run through stuff all those jacked up trucks dreamed about. The only problem was when I got stuck nobody wanted to pull this bumper dropping truck out of the mud. Paid a grand for the thing and finally after a good 1 1/2 years of total abuse it died.

My mates got an old Scout he is looking to get rid of.

Late 60s v8.

Square assed boxy piece of shite are his words.
Best offer was a bloke who will charge the mate $50 to crush it.

You can have it if you want. But....













Its right hand drive and the postage from Oz will be a killer.
We can box it up for you if you like.
