View Full Version : Scout for sale
Just checkin if theirs any interest.
I got a call today from one of Princetons finest and his son bought a binder a month or 2 ago and i towed it for him and made a comment about how they are a hard to find truck and many would be interested in it for parts.I guess he realised it was more of a parts truck rather than a build project and he wants to sell it.If they is any serious interest i will get more info and pics.It looked to be more or less complete without a roof and it will be real cheap.I think he bought it for $100,I think.

all the way in princeton eh does it run?
i dont know for sure if it runs but i can't be too far off.Let me know the important spots for pictures so you get a decent idea.Story is his dad is a cop and just got a transfer so they are gone in 2 weeks.
I am pretty sure we can find a way to get it down to you :confused0006:

hmmm wheel wells in the rear, battery tray area,door jambs and rockers,and where the front floor transitions to the rear floor basically where the floor steps up between the front and rear seats,body mounts also theres the ones at that transition and theres two at the front seat foot well areas thats four in total that tend to go real bad.
One easy way to check the strength of any of those areas is just to try and rock the front seats if they rock then the floor and mounts are most likely shot. Thanks Mike.

Sounds like you are trying to save some sheet metal bending. Also the rocking seat may be from half arse installing the seat like I did (a bolt on each side done about half hand tight)

post some pics of it....
no hard top?
Hopefully this is what ya need but i can go back for something i missed.The floor seems to look alright when ya lift the carpet but i'm no expert.
The front diff is only hand tightened at the leafs and the passenger side is held together with a ratchet strap just for towing purposes.
