    Scout Best of Both Worlds

    The International Harvester Scout is an off-road vehicle produced by International Harvester from to A precursor of more sophisticated SUVs to come, it was created as a competitor to the Jeep , and it initially featured a fold-down windshield.

    International Harvester began building trucks and pickups in In , it added a truck-based people carrier, the Travelall. In the late s, it began to design a competitor for the two-door Jeep CJ 4x4. The model year Scout 80 made its debut in late The only such vehicle offered in the post-war period was the Willys Jeep, a version of the military jeep produced for World War II. It was a flat-sided bare-bones product, and American military personnel learned to appreciate its ability to maneuver over rough terrain.

    Sales volume was very low. In early , we were directed to develop a concept proposal to enter this small market of that time. So help me, Mr. Reese, manager of engineering, said 'design something to replace the horse. It was even proposed to use the defunct Henry J body tooling. Compound body surfaces were considered too far out for this type of vehicle. The military jeep was thought to have the correct appearance. Our design sketches with the flat-side, no-contour look never excited the executive committee.

    The program began to die. One night while sitting at our kitchen table full of frustration and desperation , I dashed off this rough sketch on a piece of scrap mat board. It had contoured sides and was designed for plastic tooling. The next morning it was shown to a committee member. He reviewed it with controlled enthusiasm, but revived interest in the program. We were off and running. Goodyear produced many plastic parts for WWII and had formed a large plastic engineering group.

    We entered a program with them, a scale model was vacuum formed to simulate body assembly. This model received executive approval for appearance. By July , Goodyear completed their costing, and because of the high costs, the plastic program was cancelled. By this time, the contoured design met with executive approval and a decision was made to convert the body design to steel.

    Starting in late July , a full-sized clay model was completed, and in November , it was approved. Looking back, it was a remarkable program with fast-paced engineering and manufacturing developments. The total development time of 24 months was an heroic achievement considering the concept was unique and no in-house engine or manufacturing was available or even considered when the program started.

    A concept for its replacement was initiated in and approved for production in mid The Scout II was introduced in The basic sheet metal remained unchanged until production stopped on October 21, During the year period — , , Scouts were produced. The Scout, introduced as a commercial utility pickup in , set the stage for future four-wheel drive recreational vehicles of the '70s, '80s, and '90s. Scout 80s were built between and These models were identifiable by removable sliding side windows in — and even some very early models, a fold-down windshield, vacuum windshield wipers mounted to the top of the windshield, and an IH logo in the center of the grille.

    The Scout 80 had the gasoline-powered four-cylinder as its standard engine. The first special package was the "Red Carpet" series, celebrating the ,th Scout manufactured by IH, and only 3, were produced. This model had a red interior with a white exterior, full-length headliner, full floor mats, and a special medallion that was silver plated affixed to the door which read "Custom".

    This Scout was a step up from regular ones; it was marketed to attract more people, aand was often advertised with women in mind. Each International dealer in the United States received one Red Carpet series Scout to be used in parades, in the showroom, and for promotional purposes.
