I would like to put together a list of all of the special edition/model 80/800's that were made along with pictures if possible.

What do you guys know about these models, and do you know any more or more detail about those listed?

Red Carpet Scout:

As far as I know - The red carpet edition was only offered on the 80 in 1964, and it included all red interior, red carpet, headliner, white paint, red armrests, red door panels, red dash, red shifters, red steering wheel. I do not know production numbers, or vin #'s.

Camper edition:

There was an 80 that you could get from the dealership with a camper top. I have a drawing from a IH Pamphlet, but no pictures of an actual one, and I have not heard of one around.

Aristocrat:

This was a 1970 800 - 2500 were made and about half of those were shipped overseas. I know that it was a trim package that included limited edition interior and blue and silver paint scheme. Mag Wheels. Carpet. Chrome Roof Rack.

SR2:

I think this was also a trim package offered in 1970. I dont know many details.

800B Comanche

I dont know much about these - Some details below in the thread.

Sport Top:

These had the fastback looking top that I think was fiberglass. I dont know production numbers, color schemes, or production years. I found out that it was an 800 edition introduced in 1966.

Military Scouts:

I know that the military had 80's. I dont know about 800's, and I dont know how many they had - or what they were used for.

Postal Service Scouts:

I know nothing about these either.

Brinks Security Scout 800A:

Brinks apparently turned some 800A's into security rigs with an all new security cab from the firewall back. Follow link in post below to see picture. This is crazy - I wonder how many were made? It says that they were made by international for Brinks. Interesting.

Aristocrate:

This was a 1970 800a - 2500 were made and about half of those were shipped overseas. I know that it was a trim package that included limited edition interior and blue and silver paint scheme. Mag Wheels. Carpet. Chrome Roof Rack.


Actually spelled Aristocrat was a 1970 800, and over half of the 2500 made were shipped to Australia.

They came with Carpeted Interior, Vinyl "benches" on the Gas Tank Humps on both sides of the Rear Interior. The Color scheme was a silver/blue and a Navy Blue. The Roof and Hood were painted Blue, while the rest was The Silver. It did come with a Chrome Roof Rack that wrapped back around to the rear of the scout, and connected on both sides of the tail gate. Had the 100in Wheel base.

Also had the Rear Tire Rack. Came with the Choice of the 304 V8 that developed a "whopping" 193 HP, or you could get the conventional 6 of 4cyl Power Plants. Also was an option was the "new" 3 Spd Auto (T-39) that allowed you to shift manually as well. And the stock units (before todays mods) came with single stick transfer cases.

Unlike other models it is the only All Wheel Drive. The Full Top has the side sliding windows, chrome bumpers, the luggage rack with "grab Bars" by the lift gate, "low profile glass belted tires" on 7x15in chrome rims for the mag wheel lock, color matched headliner, vinyl bucket seats(color matched), carpeting and wheel well seat Pads and arm rests all color matched. With dual outside rear views. Also had options as far as power brakes, twin gas tanks (standard) operated by a floor mounted valve, map lights, Am Radio, and individually controlled windshield wipers.

"fully Loaded" with the 304 and the 3 spd auto/manual came out to being around $5000 new, where as a "base model" would run for $3800.

Here is a pic of my 71 800B "comanche" Only 1500 of them were to be made. All were white, with a butterscotch hood and roof, H-70 wide oval tires also had butterscotch letters on them. Stripes on the hood and across the lower body. All had "doll up" interiors, which was vinyl door panels, armrests and floor covering, along with a headliner and sliding windows in the traveltop. Chrome bumpers, and the same chrome wheels as the aristocrat and sr-2, along with undercoating. Drivetrain was the 232 or 304 backed by a 3 speed, 4-speed or B-W automatic.
Mine is the 304/ auto with 3.73 gears. Suggested retail price was $4,375.07 and an extra 306.24 for the automatic trans.

Were all of the comanche's 800 B's?

How about the Aristocrat's - all 800 A's?

Someone remind me what the A and B is about - Found it.

A's were Aug of 69 - July of 70

B's were Aug of 70 - April of 71

I do know that all the Aristocrats were 800a's...and if memory serves, the Comanches were all 800b's...

Each were the doll ups of their models. And you pinned the differences of the a's and b's. Different Models...The A's were debuted (sp) in the spring of 69...was up graded with the 304, t-39 3 spd tranny that could be shifted manually or auto...Upgraded to an aluminized muffler, stronger accelerator linkage, all joints were given nylon inserts for smoother operation. New Durable front engine mount, new logo on the grille, headlights were put in an aluminum bezel with a black back ground. The front turnsignals were moved to the lower bumper splash panel. The travel top was given 84 Sq. in of window space...etc.etc.etc. I can go on and on....Obsessed much? : innocent : thumbsup

My Aristocrat has been chopped up from how it was when it came off the line. It had the 232 I6 from AMC, and now has the 304...had the 3spd Auto, nowhas the 4 spd manual...had the single stick TC, and now has the Twin Stick TC...Power Loc Rear End...and I believe that was all that was changed...before I did cosmetics to it. : innocent : thumbsup (stereo, high back Air ride captain chairs, show bar, bikini top, etc.)

We need a red carpet expert, a sport top expert, an SR2 (Is there an SR1?) expert, and a camper edition expert.

The other models may be too rare to mention.

The military models are kind of interesting - I would like to know what all they were used for.

scout800arist
01-11-2006, 06:34 PM
What I know about the SR2 is...

Released in 1970 and 2500 were made. Early versions of the SR2 had the flame red paint job with 2 white hood stripes, upper and lower body striping, and chrome wheels fitted with Polyglas tires. Chrome front bumper, external mirrors, antenna and gas caps. Later versions of the SR2 (Production continued into the spring of 71) we're offered in a variety of colors.

Colors including White and Bronze. Free wheeling hubs were also standard. INterior was finished in black vinyl with full carpeting, woodgrain applique trim, chrome inserts for dash guages and a sound absorbing headliner.

And a Historical note on the 1970 - 71 years, in recognition of the numerous options and powertrain combinations available, IH promoted the latest scouts as "The Do-it-Yourself Scout"! : thumbsup

Hey, where is Todd?? He has a sport top sitting in his shop, waiting for a little resto. There is also a convertible sport top hidden away up on Mt. Spokane. Cool Rigs. I have some original paperwork from IH when they put out the '65. They send it out to the dealers with all the specs. I'll start digging.

Since I have an RCS and a Sport top, I'll cover those two.

The RCS was a 1964 only truck, last year for the 80, made to commemerate the 100,000th Scout. The were strictly 1 per dealer, I'm not sure how many were made but they do pop up ever now and again. They has red carpet (obviously), red door panels, a red dash, red steering wheel, red shift knobs, and a red wheel and column, Power was a 152 backed by a three speed and a D18 t-case, with D27 axles. The headliner was optional as was the rear power lock and the warn overdrive. Mine cam with all of these options, bu the overdrive came to me in a box becasue it is in need of a rebuild.

The Sport Top was a 66 and 67 model. They came in hard and soft top configurations. The top is the most obvious difference. There is no top liftgate on the hard top, instead a piece that comes over the top of the tail-gate. There are special fiberglass pieces that cover the bed steps and the tranny tunnel. Door panels were also standard, every once that I have seen has gray interior pieces, I'm not sure if they were made in another color.

My RCS is running around, the Sport-Top isn't becasue I need to pull the motor to fix a major oil leak, both are in really nice shape, I'll post some pics when I have a chance.

Okay I have found a Scout (pre 66), I think it might be a red carpet but I can't be sure it has been rolled had a dash fire and been hit very very very hard by i'm guessin another vehicle in its life. However it is a pickup with a 3-speed manual, Dana 18, Dana 27s front and rear, no overdrive, the steering wheel is a mess so I couldn't tell you what color it was however on my way out I realized that I needed some shifter nobs for my Scout so I snatched em and now that I think about it they were red! There is no interior in this vehicle hell there is hardly a floor in it and there surely isn't any undercoating, if I could get back to it again and got a Vin # is there anyway to check and see if it is anything special?

Don't forget the Turbo 152s that were offered in 64/65/66 depending on what literature you read and who you ask. The price for the 152 Turbo option was $279.00. The production numbers on the turbos were pretty small, since the cost was fairly high, and the 196 made its debut in 1966, producing just as much power naturally aspirated. As far as the factory 152 Turbos that still exist, I am the owner of one, and I know 'Pondscum' has an original as well. There is another original 152 Turbo that sold on eBay that is still functioning.
111.3 HP @ 4000 RPM, 166.5 lb-ft @ 3200 RPM

The Borg Warner overdrive (not the Warn) was a $240.00 Option in 1965.

As for the sport top, the hand-folded rag-top cost $33.58 more than the fiberglass sport-top.

I own 152 and 196 Sporttops, and a 152T 1964 Scout 80 w/OD. I also own an additional complete turbo unit still attached to the motor that came from a 1966 800. The Sporttops could come with red interior door panels on red or white painted 800s, but most had a champaign/silver color to match the seats. They had small vinyl covered foam door pulls in the same interior color. Some of the Sporttop tops had a speckle paint but most are smooth gelcoat in off-white. They invariably fade/decompose from UV to grey. I have never seen a Sporttop top with a headliner. One of my Sporttops is an ex-ragtop model that has had most original stuff stripped, and I have a half-cab on it right now. There is a rotted out convertible with a good top frame on the w.Mich coast that I have a pic of that shows the frame and how it folds in detail. All of the Sporttops used standard tubs, and the accessory pieces were bolted on to order. Most but not all Sporttops had 4 speeds, and the TC shift levers were longer to clear the FG hump. Sporttop shift knobs are white. Some later Sporttops had a snap-in rear seat and rear courtesy lights. I have never seen a 6cyl Sporttop but I have seen v8 models.

Just a minor note: the Sporttop is much heavier than the traveltop. I was first drawn to the Sporttop by the cool appearance, but I am really sold on the stability it adds for regular street driving, especially on my 1968 v8 800 (donor top, not original).

Cool again!

I love this info. Maybe when I get older I will get myself one of these rare beauties and try a restoration. The buildup on mine has been fun, but it would be interesting to have a show rig as well.

For me - It would have to be a sport-top. My wife loves them.

My uncle drove an 80 when he was in the Air Force a while back. He said they were damn reliable and because you could switch between 2wd and 4wd they got much better milage (believe it or not) than the jeeps during that time. Im pretty sure they rarely saw combat, and were more of a town to town vehicle. Ill have to ask him more about it next time I talk to him, at the time he told me this I was more interested in the 80 I bought :D

Now this may not be factory at all, but it's definitely rare. Seen on Ebay, this is a folding-windshield 800A. How it got that way, I don't know and we may never know...but it is. : coco : The other strange thing...is that it's missing the side-marker lights or holes in the fenders for them. : coco : Other than that, it's definitely an 800A.

Two other vehicles that have been left out of your list are the Champagne Series scout and the Sno-Star. A while back I posted a poll on the BB about different types of 80/800s. My goal was to try and ascertain percentages that were still around (or at least identified). See the link for details:

http://www.binderbulletin.org/forums/showthread.php?t=34813

The Sno-Star appeared to be the most elusive... it had a particular package that included a decorative sticker and appearantly some other stuff as well, but I dont have the details on that. Although the exterior tag was very cute with a sno plow type emblem and the words "Sno-Star". As far as I can tell, this was an IH offered package. I was in contact with a guy who was going to start restoring his, but I never heard any more from him.

The Champagne Series was another package deal offered from as early as 1964. This was a fancy package (sort of) like the Red Carpet Special, but whose colors were not quite as dramatic and might have been missed by future owners. I think that is why these might go more unnoticed. The interior paint scheme and trim package are a Champagne color (I know big surprise there). :D Then again if you think about the Red Carpet Special having red carpet, it must have been easy to get a marketing job at IH in the 60s. : bonk : The following info comes from a 1964 broshure on the Champagne Series... see binderbooks for your own copy if you so desire. Anyway data to follow:

Champagne Series Scout Specs.
Headliner
Sun Visors
Door Trim Panels with new trimmed arm rests
front bucket seats with new trim
hard fiberglas instrument panel trim pad (mine never had this)
new carpeting in the front compartment
Chrome mirrors
Sound deadening tape and spray on sound deadener
rubber sound deadener on the floor of front compartment
special paint on the instrument panel, steering wheel, steering column, horn button and steering column seal
chrome plated control knobs

It was only after long discussions with the family about mine did people start to remember the carpet and headliner that at one time had been in the one I now own.

The production dates of the Champagne Series are still a bit of a mystery to me, but I dont believe theyy carried all the way into 1968... I think they may have stopped these about the same time as the Red Carpet Special, but that is strictly a guess on my part. My Champagne Series is a 1968 scout according to the DMV and original date of purchase; however, the Line Setting Ticket indicates mine was built in 1966 and basically sat around for a couple years. This may play a factor in skewing the production date results a bit, but thats life I guess.

There you go... a lot of text that says very little other than, dont forget to add the Champagne Series and the Sno Star to your lists.

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention the drive train particulars of my Champagne Series. These are verified off of the "Doll-Up" Line Setting Ticket.

152 - 4cyl
4-speed T18
Dana 20
D27 Front
D44 Rear

I didnt realize they were putting D44s on 4 cylinder Scouts by the close of 1966 but that is what mine says. I have also heard that the 4-speed is unusual for a 152 from the factory as well. As stated in my preceeding post, that while it was first purchased in 1968, it was completed in 1966. I just now found myself speculating that perhaps someone special ordered some of these options, but never took delivery and it was later resold... just a thought.

My doll up ticket lists the transmition as a T14, what was this? I know it was a 3speed as that is also on the line ticket, allong with d18 transfercase, and dana 27s f&r with 427s.

That is a neat sticker. Wow - looks like those things have had a hard life of being put to work!

Interesting...

I wonder if International kept track of vin numbers for all of these different models, or if it was something that was done at the dealership.

You would think that they would have had to had exact production numbers and attached to that would be vin numbers.

You guys think all of this info was just trashed?

My 1965 800 A came with a 152 engine and a four speed. I think that was ordered like that I'm only 3rd owner so I know the 2nd owner never changed it. Just thought i'd add that.

Oh yeah it had a paxton super charger on it however it needed a complete re-build so i took it off and gave it to my friend in San Diego...

Another one of the Scout models is the Python. This one had special paint and was outfitted with a soft top. It had a V8 with chrome exaust extenders that ran down the rocker panels and pointed out right before the rear wheel well. It also had extra wide tires mounted on polished wheels.

I drug this home the other day. SR2 stripes - may be a clone, may be legit, I don't know how to tell. Is there a special letter or number in the VIN? Complete with a custom booty-fab hack job 1/2 cab and fold up tonneau. HAHA. The front 1/2 is cherry, and the rear quarters and bed floor are rough by my standards. Oh well, I didn't pay much for it.

Best of all, it has a nice running 304 w/ automatic (is this the Borg Warner or a TF727) and single stick (I'd guess D20) transfer case.

That is a neat sticker. Wow - looks like those things have had a hard life of being put to work!

Interesting...

I wonder if International kept track of vin numbers for all of these different models, or if it was something that was done at the dealership.

You would think that they would have had to had exact production numbers and attached to that would be vin numbers.

You guys think all of this info was just trashed?There are few records of production numbers for early scouts besides those for the special editions. Crismon's "Grey Bible" has some production numbers. IHC wasn't big on keeping those kinds of records. After they built the 100,000th Scout, they comemorated it with the Red Carpet and Champagne Series.
The special editions were usually produced within a certain VIN range but other "plain" Scouts could also be interspersed.
For example, my records show RCS being build between FC102264 and FC106532. Those aren't hard and fast numbers, just what I happen to have a record of.
Champagne Series were built between FC111845 and FC194246 with regular Scout 80s in between.

Someone that had a Snostar must have wrecked it, and when they repaired it they chopped out the panel with the decorative sticker. I got possession of the panel with a package of scout memorabilia. I slapped it on the front of my 1954 IH kegerator with some magnets. I think it's a fitting home for it. I always thought that the Snostar was a moderation of the Scout II like the Midnite star, and the Day Star, and the others made by Midas. Anyway.
coolz.

Two other vehicles that have been left out of your list are the Champagne Series scout and the Sno-Star. A while back I posted a poll on the BB about different types of 80/800s. My goal was to try and ascertain percentages that were still around (or at least identified). See the link for details:

http://www.binderbulletin.org/forums/showthread.php?t=34813

The Sno-Star appeared to be the most elusive... it had a particular package that included a decorative sticker and appearantly some other stuff as well, but I dont have the details on that. Although the exterior tag was very cute with a sno plow type emblem and the words "Sno-Star". As far as I can tell, this was an IH offered package. I was in contact with a guy who was going to start restoring his, but I never heard any more from him.

Info from Lingenfelter relative …from a website…(works at Lingenfelter performance Engineering in Decatur, IN)…Lingenfelter worked at International Truck Engineering for a very short time, and then left and started his own business Building special Corvette engines.


John raced a 1962 2wd International Scout with a turbocharged 4 cylinder. It was an old orange Indiana & Michigan meter reading vehicle. My recollection is that we went under the record at a points meet at Milan Michigan in the fall of 1969 or 1970. The scout would pull the wheels of the ground as it left the line. It was quite unique and fun for a while. We only raced it a few times as we kept cracking pistons. Also John proved what he wanted, that he could make this unique combination run under the national record.
John’s partner at the time was also an engineer with International Harvester.

Ive seen that pic and heard that story somewhere before. Great story.

I imagine a Hot Rod Scout always was and always will be unique. :thumbsup:

If you take the pic, zoom in, and reverse it, it looks like 15.95 written on the windshield. Not a rocket, but decent enough for 4 cylinder powered brick shaped farm equipment.

I wonder if anyone can chime in on the purpose and rarity (or not) of the 2WD scouts.

I have a 1968 800 with a 152, 3spd, and only 2WD

according to (minimal lol) research and questions posted over the years my Transmission has a longer tail-shaft since I have no T/C so to add 4x4 means a new tranny too.

Also has an "I-beam" looking front axle.

Anybody know how many were made like this and why?

All the scouts I EVER see or have EVER owned have been 4x4 except this one. I was going to upgrade to 4x4, but then bought an identical looking 1966 Scout 800 with a 304, 4spd and 4x4 so I decided to keep mine 2wd.


So whats the story on the 2WD's?? It doesn't seem right for a scout to only have 2wd so why do it? I don't think mine was a doll-up, there was no carpet or headliner or anything else unusual except the lack of a T/C and front drive axle.

Believe it or not, in 1959, IH believed most Scout 80's would be two wheel drive (4x2). However, the customers ordered mostly four wheel drive (4x4) Scouts and IH maintained 4x2 as an option in the Scout 80, Scout 800 and Scout II thru 1979, possibly 1980 also.

The US Post Office purchased hundreds, if not thousands of Scouts with right hand drive and two wheel drive in the 1960's.

Right hand drive was an option that ranged from about $15 in 1960 to about $150 in 1980.

Just out of curiosity :dunno:
What would a special edition add to the value of a Scout, If some one found a Scout for 500 to a grand as a standard run of the mill unit versus a special in like condition.

lonnie
09-27-2010, 02:21 PM
chris- i will chime in here in the hope others may add to this. a special edition/rare scout might have a higher value depending on originality. original, restored early scouts are a rare bird for the simple reason the cost of restoration usually exceeds the value of the car. i do not believe the early scout market is segmented in any significant way and so you basically have only the good, the bad and the ugly. with time things may change, but i for one would not pay a premium for a limited production scout.

1975IH200
09-27-2010, 02:57 PM
ALL Scouts are "limited production"...limited to the number that IH produced.
And now, limited to the number that still exist, in whatever condition or form.
Condition, originality and options determine the value, more so than so called "rarity" does.

Here is "I'm not sure". I think it may be a campermobile prototype top? Also could have had a "Mustang" Badge on the top somewhere. Had a bucking bronco cast in with the word Mustang. Not sure if po glued it on or there was some top company back in the day called "Mustang". Or if it was just laying near where the Scout with this top on it was.

Well i thought i would share. I will go into more in detail on it in my forums section that are being finished as we speak. If you know something please e-mail me. Thanks

Hmmm so any idea on who made it? Yes the sides open up towards the top. I dont know if i can stand in it, mabey sitting down and shooting, but shooting inside a vehicle has always been a no no so i dont know if that understanding would be "right" ??? I mean to make a top just for hunting...corse stranger things have happened.

Gotta run, somehow i gotta get ready for the Bee but
I am now dealing with a trade deal gone bad and turned into a stolen Scout 800 from me. It has taken up several days of my time tracking all the details and info down.

If its shown on other website stores i can usually get it to you for the same or less, i just don't have the manpower to load my webstore with all my products as i am short staffed right now.
