Truck enthusiasts everywhere know how important it is to stay true to an original design when taking on a restoration project, and the guys at Velocity Restorations have set out to do just that. Their most recent 1973 International Scout II is an homage to the original vehicle with some burly new upgrades.

Velocity opted to recondition the original removable hardtop in a beautiful shade of gray and went so far as to update the interior of the truck with modern pleasantries like custom built Dakota Digital round gauges, a VintageAir heating/air conditioning system, and JW speakers. Alongside these modern upgrades, the truck was outfitted with a custom gray vinyl upholstery and a powder-coated four-point roll bar welded to the chassis. It’s powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 and boasts 430-horsepower with a 470E transmission. A Dana 44 front axle, six-inch suspension lift, and 17-inch Pacer wheels round out the custom Brittany Blue build.
