Here is one that you don’t see everyday – A International D-Series pickup from what I’m guessing is 1965. I tend to see the International Scouts much more often, but this is a first for me. The contrast between the paint job and the paint on the wheels is startling. Enjoy some pics of this now defunct light American truck company (they make big trucks now).

We spotted another Scout 2! There are a surprising amount of International Scout’s in Los Angeles and I love spotting these. They are a vehicle ought not recognized by a casual passerby. An enthusiast, on the other hand, can pick out a Scout among a sea of vehicles. The enthusiast observes and deciphers various automotive forms in front of him/her, often times on the front line of a Car Spotting party. The enthusiast could be considered…. dare I say… a Scout.

We’re sticking with the theme of Toyota pickups. This one comes to us in a blazing orange glory from 1976. Is it coincidental that all the small pickups of this time such as the Datsun 620 and the Ford Courier, were similar looking and offered this amazing orange paint option? In matter of fact, all the colors they offered on these trucks were pretty rad. Bring back more cool colors!
Here we have the venerable 1978 International Scout II in ragtag condition. I’ve concluded that despite it’s dilapidated appearance, this Scout hits the road and chomps up speed bumps and potholes with rigidity (maybe) and gusto.
Learn about the International Scout II:
Scout II’s were manufactured from April 1971 to 1980. The design was frozen much earlier, with a nearly identical version shown to management in December 1967.
The Scout II is most identifiable by its different front grilles. The 1971–1972 Scout II shared the same grille, three horizontal bars between the headlights and chrome rings around the headlights. 1973 Scout II’s had 14 vertical bars between the headlights, a split in the middle, seven bars on each side surrounded by chrome trim pieces and an “International” model plate low on the left side. 1974–75 Scout II grilles were the same as 1973, with the addition of a vertical bar trim overlay. The 1975 had chrome and black square trim rings around the headlights. 1976 had the same headlight trim rings as 1975, a chrome center grille of 15 horizontal bars split into three sections was used in this year only. 1977–79 Scout II’s used the same grille between the same headlight bezels the new chrome grille had two large horizontal bars with three vertical support lines and the “International” nameplate moved up to the center of the grille on the left side.
