The Scout II proved to be a fierce competitor both on the street and the highly popular off-road racing circuit. Jerry Boone drove a Scout II specially modified for the rigors of competition in the legendary and grueling Baja 1000 in 1977. Finishing the run in under 20 hours and nearly two hours ahead of his competitors, Mr. Boone finished 1st in the production 4 × 4 class and cemented the Scout II as an off-road icon.
The Scout II offered here is the spiritual descendent of Mr. Boone’s legendary ride. This Traveler has been fully restored and heavily, though tastefully, customized for maximum off-road performance. It is powered by a GM 6.0-liter engine that runs through a 4L60E transmission and Dana 300 transfer case. It also features a roof rack, front bumper rocker guards, winch, and a swing out tire carrier.
This is a fine custom interpretation of a legendary off-road racer that is ready to meet any challenge whether on the dunes, rocks, or snowy mountain passes.
