• A fantastic ‘resto-mod’ SUV, which has been comprehensively restored by IH Parts America and upgraded/serviced by Bulletproof Restorations – both leading specialists.
  • Under the bonnet is a 5.3L LS Vortec V8 engine, coupled to a slick automatic transmission.
  • The rebuild was a full body-off process, with the Scout refurbished from the ground up throughout every component.
  • Benefiting from a recent service following its build, it is ready for immediate use.
  • The odometer now shows 3,500 miles, with the Scout used for cruising around town and going to car meets/shows.


  • Finished in Willow Green Matte with a Black interior, this Scout’s dark exterior theme extends to the matte black painted 17-inch heavy duty wheels and black bumpers.
  • It is equipped with 4L65E and NP241C transfer cases, as well as Dana 44 axles at the front and rear with a 3.92:1 drive ratio.
  • The cabin is equipped with a wood-rimmed Grant steering wheel, a wooden gear knob and custom-fabricated metal trim across the dashboard.
  • The car will be accompanied by a comprehensive digital record of the restoration process, with more than 250 images on file.


  • No bodywork damage.
  • Its resprayed Matte Grey paintwork is in good condition, though one small chip can be seen on the underside of the bonnet.
  • One minor blemish can be seen on the black vinyl passenger seat, but otherwise the re-trimmed interior is in great shape. 
  • A few light scratches are visible on the lower dashboard.
  • No electrical faults have been detected.


  • Its most recent service was at around 2,100 miles, where technicians at Bulletproof Restorations in Marina Del Rey, California changed the engine oil as a ‘running-in’ service following its custom build.


This International Scout 800 is a comprehensively restored example of the classic SUV with a total body-off ground-up rebuild, now finished in sleek Matte Grey and with a custom interior. Fresh from a recent service, this characterful resto-mod is ready to enjoy as a fun alternative to modern and increasingly anodyne 4x4s.
