There was also a Scout 800c I had one 1970 it came with a 345 t-18 4spd and Dana 44's front and rear, had a scout II dash electric wipers and the window did NOT fold down, at least thats how I remember it!


most of those 800c's were Dana 30 fronts, but there where a few that had a 44, I think that was a special order option.

What length was the Terra Scout?

Am looking @ a project build and was told that scout frames were all boxed. One less thing to have to do.
Know that the Terra scout had a wheel base of 118 that will work for the project but what was the total length of the Terras?
Will all the crazy after market scout parts out there the project will be easy if I can use a Scout frame

Yeah they have a boxed frame. I went out and measured the Terra sitting in my back yard it is 182" long and 66" wide.

You had your chance Trav. That's the one I ended up getting in August and have been working on since ( Project: Banana Slug ). There is/was a lot more work to getting it running than it looked like.

I wish IH was still building Scouts. From what I understand, they quit when the gov't started mandating all kinds of equipment for "cars" that is not required on trucks, so they decided to stick with trucks that were less hassle.
