    Went and picked it up. It runs pretty well, but has some oil leaks, only drives in 4x4 and transmission wont go into reverse. The body is pretty straight. The winters projects will be to get the body straightened out and primed. Will also be pulling out the rear end. Getting it converted over for spring over, and rebuilt with 4:11s. Will do the ARB when I have more money.

    Pictures (Last Picture is of the Chevy Dana 44 that will get built up for the front later):

    Today I removed the passenger door and gutted it. It will go over to my friends. There are holes down the side from some molding that was long gone. There are also several holes from various mirrors that had been installed at different times. All these holes will be filled by my friend. In the mean time I will sand and paint the door panel. This thing is all sheet metal! no plastic or cardboard door panel here. This thing is a solid beast.
    This door will need a new regulator because the window wont roll up.

    Awesome, I love old scouts. One day hope to build one myself. Keep us posted on the progress. Good luck with it.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    This sounds like an interesting build/project, will stay interested as you continue to work.
    It sounds like you are doing a "rolling" restoration? Or are you going to go ahead and completely tare this ting apart?

    I recently became very interested into IH scouts, especially the 800's of the 60's. Would love to get one and have something to work on a couple of days a week.
    Would love to also "Line-X" it, and make it a good trail truck.

    I definitely will not be doing a frame off, But i plan to do the best i can without taking the body off the frame. I plan to line-x/bedliner the interior. Something to think about when line-xing the whole thing, this is already a pretty damn heavy truck. doing a complete line-x will add to the weight.

    Yeah that's something I'm worried about, it adding a lot of weight. Maybe half way up from the bottom can be Line-X, and the other portion can be paint.
    I'm not sure what the thickness of the metal is, but I'm guessing it's thick. Which is always a good thing, but the weight sucks. I hear these scouts are very solid trucks, sounds good to me!

    Your plan to put Line-X into the interior sounds like a good idea.
