1964 International Scout 80

Trenton McGee, an author with the Motor Trend Network, is building a 1964 International Scout 80 4x4 to take on the 2019 Ultimate Adventure. A transmission that could take the long haul and still climb all the rocks was in order! The TREMEC TR-4050 was a perfect match.

Follow along with the build:

Part 1: McGee outlines the history of his Scout, gives a quick rundown of all the updates to come, and starts off cutting out rust and making room for the larger tires and engine.
