Winter is Coming! Conquer the snow with this International Scout

First introduced in 1961, the International Harvester Scout hit the market as a direct competitor of the civilian Jeep. Building trucks was nothing new for IH; they'd been manufacturing them since 1907 and had even introduced the truck-based Travelall in the early 1950s. However, most of their market was heavy duty, making the Scout a standout product for the company. The early SUV took aim at the daily driver who also needed a go anywhere kind of rig. The result would live on from 1961 through 1980. This 1966 International Scout for sale (link below), is chock full of patina but runs well and can be yours for just $5,500. Let's take a look. While the first 3,000 or so 1966 Scouts would be first generation Scout 80s, later in the year it would become the Scout 800. While the se...

A suitable response of "Gee, thanks pop," is all that floats from your mouth.

But hey, wheels right? Fast forward to today, ten bucks says you wish you still had that car. The rise of station wagons is among us!

Take Home This Wishful Woody – 1950 Ford Country Squire Needs Help

In the early years of Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford believed his car company should be self sustainable. He desired to build cars completely from the ground up. This meant mining ore, operating rubber plantations and growing trees for their wood to build Model T floorboards and other wood body parts. For the latter, Ford purchased some 500 wooded acres in Michigan, which provided a constant supply of lumber. That expansive forest would eventually become the source for complete bodies, birth the Ford woody wagons. Fast forward to 1950 and this Ford Woody Wagon, presumably a Ford Country Squire, rolled off the line. It's one of less than 23,000 built that year, still using real wood from Ford's forest. This example, badly in need of restoration, is found on Craigslist near Spokane, WA ...
