Theres no need to get all dolledup to see our very special and extremely rare 1969 DollUpScout 800A at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. InternationalHarvester had a knack for driving to the beat of a different drummer and for being ahead of the curve. The Scout was a good example of the latter, offered way before the acronym SUV was coined.
Custom ordered on 7/12/68 and then built in September 1968 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, this Scout 800A is possibly the only one ever built with this unique configuration. Custom and factoryordered, it was delivered to the Mamaroneck Garage in Mamaroneck, New York. The DollUpScout was a highoption model offered to compete with Jeep. It left the factory with options a spare tire carrier, chrome rear bumper, fourwheel disc brakes, dual 10gallon fuel tanks, white hardtop and a fullwidth rear seat.
The original extensive documentation for his factory Doll Up Scout is absolutely impressive Included with the original line setting ticket with the famous "DollUpScout" stamp, the original dealer order sheet with all the doll up order options, the original bill of sale, the original genuine operators manual with numerous notes from over the years, the original service unit record, the original factory key tag, the original saleprint advertisement for this Scout, battery warranty, letters to and from IH, Inc., miscellaneous service invoices, insurance and license papers from over the years. One of the most interesting pieces is the original Motor Truck Service Manual is included and is COMPLETELY filled out correctly with service and parts logs from the original owner form 1969 to 2012 with no gaps whatsoever We have never seen such a thorough owners log such as this Another interesting piece is one of the letters to IH came from the original owner, who asked for engine data not included in the original owners manual, verifying the wrong carb jet is specified in the owners manual and inquiring how to cure minor suspension and clutch linkage issues.
Finished in white over Bahama Blue, the beautiful new paint and trim are in excellent condition, including the steel traveltop. The trucks glass panels are clear and intact. Its lights are in one piece and crackfree. Its body panels are straight and solid. The cargo bay is in very good order behind the rear seat, the engine bay is very tidy and the original wheel covers and the bumpers are in very good order.
Under the hood is a Commando 196 CID fourcylinder engine bolted to a T44 fourspeed manual transmission, which connects to a RA23 singlereduction rear axle with a PowerLok limitedslip differential.
Inside, the original bucket seats and door panels have been reupholstered in camel to match the original factory interior color and new period and colorcorrect carpet has been installed. The front buckets look great, the camel color looks almost golden in certain lights. The rear bench seat also looks good. There is no review mirror, however the instrument panel, with its full set of gauges, is in good order. The original, twospoke steering wheel looks decent. The inner door panels without armrests, mirror glass and shift lever are all in good order. Rounding out this interior is a classic Audiovox solidstate AM/FM radio.
The Scoutwasproduced from 1961 to 1980. A precursor of more sophisticatedSUVsto come, it was created as a competitor to theJeep, and it initially featured a folddownwindshield. The Scout and second generation Scout II were produced as twodoor trucks with a removable hard top with options of a fulllength roof, half cabpickupand/or softtop.
November 1968 saw the introduction of the 800A, which replaced the 800. Improvements included more creature comfort options, a slightly different frontend treatment, drivetrain upgrades (heavier rear axle and quieterDana20 transfer case) and the options of: 196 fourcylinder, 232 sixcylinder, 266 V8 or the 304 V8. The inlinesix was only offered for a short period in early 1969.The 800A's grille was in three segments: the center grill and two matte black headlight bezels. TheLight Lineof pickup trucks received bodywork similar to that of the Scout in late 1969.
With the transition to the 800A model, the rear axle was upgraded to aDana 44, with a centered differential mated to the Dana 20 transfer case (which had replaced the Dana 18).
Competition to this International in 1969 included Jeeps CJ5, Chevrolets K5 Blazer and Fords Bronco.
