There's no need to get all dolled-up to see our very special and extremely rare 1969 “Doll-Up-Scout” 800A at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. International-Harvester 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 factory-ordered. it was delivered to the Mamaroneck Garage in Mamaroneck. New York. The “Doll-Up-Scout” was a high-option model offered to compete with Jeep. It left the factory with options – a spare tire carrier. chrome rear bumper. four-wheel disc brakes. dual 10-gallon fuel tanks. white hardtop and a full-width 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 "Doll-Up-Scout" 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 sale print advertisement for this Scout. battery warranty. letters to and from I-H. 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 I-H came from the original owner. who asked for engine data not included in the original owner's manual. verifying the wrong carb jet is specified in the owner's 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 travel-top. The truck's glass panels are clear and intact. Its lights are in one piece and crack-free. 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 four-cylinder engine bolted to a T-44 four-speed manual transmission. which connects to a RA-23 single-reduction rear axle with a Power-Lok limited-slip 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 color-correct 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. two-spoke 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 solid-state AM/FM radio.
The Scout was produced from 1961 to 1980. 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. The Scout and second generation Scout II were produced as two-door trucks with a removable hard top with options of a full-length roof. half cab pickup and/or soft-top.
November 1968 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 options of: 196 four-cylinder. 232 six-cylinder. 266 V-8 or the 304 V-8. The inline-six 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. The Light Line of 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 a Dana 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 Jeep's CJ-5. Chevrolet's K5 Blazer and Ford's Bronco.

MotoExotica. com is a licensed bonded dealer through the state of Missouri. We have been in business since 1988 selling high end. special interest. pre-owned and exotic vehicles.
