1979 International Harvester Scout Terra
1979 International Harvester Scout Terra with only 1399 miles since restoration. This truck was purchased new by the first owner’s family to use on the family wheat farm in Sherman County, Oregon. After 25 years on the farm, it was needing some attention. The second owner replaced lots of consumables, installed a High Country lift kit, gave it a fresh coat of paint, and installed a few custom touches.
The engine is the original 304 V8, which was rated at 140 horsepower. That’s paired to the original 727 automatic and DANA 4×4 system. All of the running gear is original to the truck . The front transfer case and rear-end are both tagged #46-13 / 3.54.
The interior is in as clean of shape as the exterior. It features some custom touches, such as the Grant GT steering wheel and gauges, but it presents well. Here is their list of all that has been replaced on the inside: all rubber seals for top, doors, & windows, window felt, window glides, and door sill plate was replaced. The interior is all new with soundproofing on the floor and behind seat/cab. The carpet, stainless dash, gauges, sun visors, dome light, Seat cushion, radio & speakers, Steering wheel, turn signal switch, headlight switch, high beam switch, door panels, and armrests also all-new.
While they had the interior apart, they decided to also replace the entire floor pan. They found a bit of rust in the driver’s side floor around the body bolt and they wanted to make sure the entire thing was solid and would stay that way. The bed also had the usual dents and damage from farm life, so they went ahead and replaced the bed floor to make sure it looked it’s best. To keep the outside of the truck looking clean, they also had the fuel filler moved to the inside of the bed. With all that done, they had the bed professionally sprayed with Rhino Lining.
The exterior was given a few custom touches to give it the right look. Besides the 2.5″ lift, 31 x 10.50 x 15 tires (fresh ones were just recently installed), fender flares, custom bumpers, and a five-point roll bar with led lights were added. They also installed new Halogen headlights, new side markers, antenna, wipers, and new body and transmission mounts.
This truck is ready to hit the road or trail and is a really great looking 4×4. Lock up the manual hubs and you’ll be able to take this truck just about anywhere. The seller is sad to see it go, but they are ready to move it along.
