The Scout was produced by International Harvester (IH) in their Fort Wayne, Indiana, plant from 1961 to 1980. It came in several configurations of wagon and truck, but the most sought after is the Scout 80. IH began building trucks and pickups in 1907, but did not reach mainstream popularity until after the war.
How many scouts were made in the 80s?
They celebrated the 100K landmark with the special edition Red Carpet Scout 80, a pearlescent white model with a red interior. Only 3,000 were ever produced, and good luck finding one today.
Which was first scout or Bronco?
The Ford Bronco is a model line of SUVs that were manufactured from 1965 to 1996 by Ford. It was developed as a competitor to compact SUVs such as the Jeep CJ-5 and the International Harvester Scout. The first Bronco was designed by Donald Frey and Lee Iacocca as an off-road vehicle that could compete with the Jeep CJ.
What year did Ford buy International?
2003 The companies have sued each other at least twice before. Ford paid International an undisclosed sum in 2003 after Ford canceled a V-6 engine for the F-150 pickup. An International spokesman said Fords lawsuit is totally without merit, and that the company will respond vigorously in court.
