Paid $300 for it. It has a 304 V8 and runs like a champ. Who here wants to help me cut the rust out of the body?;f

Scouts Rock!

LEt me know if you need any parts. There is a huge Scout shop up here.

Mr. Scout, they used to be in 4 wheeler mags every now and then

I've got some of that work to do myself on my '76. Congrats on joining the Binder family!

I cut open the front fender wells the other day, they were full of sand, dirt, leaves, pine straw, and other organic items. I started peeling away the fiberglass patch job that some previous owner did. I have some sheet metal parts coming in soon and my buddy is going to cut and weld the parts in for free and prime them for a paint job. Now, what color should I paint this thing. I think it will be a green and primer color for a while. I'll use it to pick up dates in;)

Oh I know all about that. Mine's not roadworthy at the moment - front driver-side mount is gone. Major floorpan/rocker surgery is scheduled for this winter.

I posted some pics over in the 4x4 thread - the big orange one is mine.
