    Looks nice. Must have some kind of lift? How well did that plow?

    I had to sell it and the house due to wife being laid off from her Snap On Tools job. It was my third Scout because it was the body from my #1 1967 Scout 800 transplanted to the frame of my #2 1978 Scout II chassis. The swap required a body lift to even out the differences in the frame configurations. It also had a moderate shackle lift (bad idea on a Scout). The plow frame was home made, it actually did not hang below frame level when the plow was in the fully raised position, for off road ground clearance. When finances finally imnproved I bought my fourth Scout that I just installed a used plow on. We have recovered financially but I am still a bit on edge when it comes to money. We have a smaller house then previously and are going to keep it that way for peace of mind.

    It plowed well enough, I didn't have much to compare it to, just plowed my own driveway and the cul de sac that the city would save for last. It had plenty of pushing power, with an International Harvester 304 V8 and Dana 300 T Case, and Dana 44 front and rear.
