Motorcar Studio specializes in the restoration of International’s iconic Harvester Scout, and throughout the years, they’ve released some of the most aesthetically-pleasing examples that the market has ever laid eyes on. Now, they’re back with the Harvester Scout II Rallye — an impeccably-envisioned road warrior that sets the bar for future builds.
This 1976 Harvester is an homage to the vehicle’s rustic roots, pairing an olive green color palette with the SUV’s rust-free chassis, off-road peripherals (like a custom Warn winch and KC lights), and improved powerplant. Under the hood, you’ll find an immaculate 345-cubic-inch V8 engine, which pumps out a miraculous amount of power to the vehicle’s TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission. An Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, DUI distributor, and electronic ignition have been implemented, pushing the Scout further into modernity. Alongside the SUV’s performance improvements, the entire driveline has been refurbished (or rebuilt), to include a four-inch Rough Country lift and durable tie rods from GRC. Inside, camel-colored upholstery adorns the front and rear seating area, while an immaculate gauge cluster, a Bluetooth soundbar (tucked beneath the A/C unit), and an R-134a-converted air conditioning system round out the boisterous build. It can be yours now for $49,900.
