Dana 60 rear IH pickup width
Dana 44 front full width
It is a great rig and I love wheeling it. Compared to my old IH it really is allowing me to grow as a driver. For it's capabilities far exceed the ones of the first HoS.
Scout 80 and Scout 800
Scout 80s were built between 1960 and 1965. These models were identifiable by removable sliding side windows in 1960-1961 and even some very early 1962 models, a 152 4 cyl. engine, 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 800 replaced the 80 in late 1965. 800s were built from late 1965 to 1968. These models had many improvements in comfort and design, including bucket seats, better instrumentation and heating systems, optional rear seats, and optional 196 4-cyl, 232 6-cyl, or 266 V-8 engines. A turbocharged version of the 152 4 cylinder (the 152-T) was offered from 1965-1967.
1969 saw the introduction of the 800A, which replaced the 800. Improvements included more creature comfort options, a slightly different front end treatment, drivetrain upgrades (heavier rear axle and quieter Dana 20 transfer case) and the 304 V-8 option.
The last of the 800 series was the 800B, available for only part of 1971 before it was replaced with the Scout II. Identical to the 800A other than in minor cosmetic details, it was produced only until the Scout II was in production..
Special packages offered on the Scout 80 through 800 A and B models
The first was the "Red Carpet" Series, celebrating the 100,000 Scout manufactured by IH. This model had a red interior with a white exterior, full length headliner and full floor mats, and a special medallion affixed to the door which read, "100,000 Red Carpet Series Scout By International". IH also offered the Scout 800 Sportop, which had an upgraded interior and a unique fiberglass top (it was also available as a soft top) with a slanted back and a continental spare tire kit. The "Champagne Series" Scout was a high-option Scout offered in the Scout 80 and later Scout 800 models. The 800A could be ordered with the Aristocrat, SR-2, or Sno-Star packages, and the 800B was available with the Comanche package. Each of these packages included special paint and decals, chrome trim, sliding travel top windows, and other "high dollar" options such as roof racks, chrome wheels, and upgraded interiors. Line tickets of the special package Scouts (and some non-package units) were often rubber stamped with the words "Doll-Up Scout".
