The final bid on this plaid-clad '79 Scout was ludicrous | Hagerty Media

We knew this truck was special. We knew it would likely sell over our #1 condition value of $48,800, based on the interior alone. But $67,200 after fees? That's a surprise, to say the least. This is the third-highest International Scout sale we've ever seen at auction, and holds the record for a "stock" example.

The 1982 F250 that sold on BaT last week for $97K tops that. Parked the day it was purchased 39 years ago, sold with 76 miles on the odometer. Original tires too.

Thanks for the tid-bit Bill. Just another BaT shaz crazy price! Amazing times!

“Rough undercarriage”. Truck is 42 years old and looks damn good.

So many cars are over restored - a bit of wear and tear shows the truck was used the way it was supposed to. Give me that any day over something that could’ve been wrecked, straightened and put back together as “showroom quality”.

You can NEVER over restore a vehicle!

Original... but not THAT original. Body mount bushings, lift kit (as mentioned), wheels, tires, and front bumper all look to be later.

Glad to see the interest in the pre '90 4X
