$1500 Scout

This old warhorse showed up on Craigslist this afternoon; $1500 for some rust held together with what looks like Glacier Blue paint. 4cyl/manual. It’s being sold by a dealer, so it’s more than likely they drug it out of a field somewhere and are advertising it to get some of those sweet sweet Icon dollars.

I would give them maybe $300 for this as it sits; I doubt anyone wants a blue interior, unless it’s got a tilt wheel. The engine is worthless but the transmission and running gear are valuable. And maybe the hubcaps.

    What are you talking about? It’s a gem of a find. All it needs is some “Rusteze medicated bumper ointment”. Haha.
    I did t see the add, but I am interested in a four cylinder scout someday.
    The angle of the doors makes it seem like the body mounts are completely gone!

    Ha ha Neal—it’s gonna need more than ointment.
    Four cylinder Scouts are actually pretty cool—my friend Brian has one, and it has more scoot than I was expecting—but most people are looking for a V8 (or, worse, immediately want to do a SBC swap). And yeah, I’d guess the body mounts, rockers, and most of the floors are completely gone…
