21. International Harvester Scout
The Scout is an SUV that has begun to receive a lot of recognition in the last decade. Offered initially as a comparable model to the Trailduster and the Blazer. International marketed the Scout under the Travelall, although the SUV was based on the same platform. The SUV had many of the same features that the Trailduster and other SUVs offered, such as a removable top. The ground clearance of the Scout was also extremely high, making the SUV perform for off-roading. A good deal of Scout models were used by government agencies at the time, such as the Forestry Service. These big SUVs were a breeze to work on and very reliable, which made them great fleet vehicles.
There has been talking that after the success of the Wrangler the company might attempt to revive the Scout model. The aftermarket community for these SUVs has shot the value up tremendously and the amount of aftermarket accessories is ridiculous. Another thing about the unique Scout is that a lot of fabricators have figured out how to fit a GM 350 into it. This means that a good portion of the customized Scouts you are looking at is powered by a modern motor. Nevertheless, the Scout is a surefire way to get respect off-road or just about anywhere you take this behemoth classic.
