    Sounds like a good find! Lots of guys would like to have it. Have no idea of a dollar value. True way to get what it's worth would be list it on e-Bay.

    Most of the people in the IH community love there IHs for what they are and can afford them. Even though we believe a vehicle like your Scout is the best kind of find it will never bring the money that say a Camaro or something similar will bring, there just not that desired by big buck collectors or Hot Rodders. Thank God!

      $50-60 will get you a new filler neck from a Scout vendor....that way one little problem is fixed....truck value totally depends on condition, much more than low mileage...

      If you're really serious about figuring out value, SSS does have an appraisal service, see their webpage for details....

      Watching the trucks on Ebay for a while will give you an idea...keep in mind that Ebay often sells low...and there's a glut of "project vehicles" in this economy....

      Good luck....

        In addition to what Mark and Ronnie said, yes, tracking similar Scouts on eBay is one way to estimate value but you also have to keep in mind LOCATION.

        Scouts, even more so than other vehicles, will have more or less value depending on the location. I bought mine off eBay and it was a real bargain. However, I'm in Southern California where Scouts just aren't real common nor is there a real big demand for them. Had my Scout been up for sale in Colorado, Idaho, Oregon or Washington it probably would have sold for quite a bit more especially since it's virtually rust free when compared to Northern Scouts.
