ORIGINAL PAINT!! Clean title!
Removable Top has NEVER BEEN OFF!!
The exterior of is in great original condition. The original factory Embassy Gray paint has a great finish and shines/shows very well. There has never been any paint work done so there are some chips, scratches, minor surface rust, and boo boos over the years. The paint on the top has some thin spots. Remember, a classic vehicle is only original once. This Scout has a straight, solid body with only minor imperfections as to be expected. It has been driven, and is very nice for 40 years old!
The interior is in well preserved original condition as well. The dash is in very nice shape with a couple of minor cracks. The instrument cluster and gauge bezel all look amazing and everything works. All gauges work as they should. EVERY gauge light, courtesy light, turn signal indicator, high beam notification, dome light, etc. works! The heater works great in all positions. The exterior lights all work as does the windshield wipers. The original radio is working, and the dash has not been cut or modified ever. The flooring is the original vinyl showing only minor imperfections and is overall in excellent condition. The door panels are super nice. The headliner has a couple of minor cracks, but overall in very nice condition and well preserved. The seats have been redone at some point and were done very well matching the original parchment interior color. Seats are comfortable and firm. It feels very much like a brand new 1978 when sitting inside of it!
This is the part that probably impresses me the most about this Scout. It is a one finger on the wheel kind of driver. Truly amazing! There is no pull to either side while cruising or braking. It has very tight and precise handling characteristics. The motor fires right up, runs very smooth, doesn't smoke, and has lots of torque. Overnight it will leave a couple of drops of oil, nothing major. Check out how tidy and sorted out the engine bay is. It has been meticulously detailed. The 4 speed transmission shifts smoothly through all of the gears. The desirable 3.73 gear ratio Dana 44 axles option give a great balance of torque and really nice road manners. The transfer case shifts through all of its positions smooth and the 4WD works great in both HI and LOW range.
