Seller Note

You wont see too many Terras anymore. The Terra has a 118 inch wheelbase (18 inches longer than the Scout II), and a fiberglass Terra top (half top). The additional 18 inches are between the doors and rear wheels.
The powertrain on this truck (345 V8 engine, T19 wide ratio 4-speed manual transmission, Dana 20 transfer case, driveshafts, Dana 44 axles, hubs) is stock. The original 345 engine was recently replaced with a working 345 with good oil pressure. When purchased in 2008, the speedometer was broken and had to be replaced, so the mileage shown in any pictures or videos is not accurate. The mileage on the truck is unknown a this point but likely not more than a few thousand since it was restored.
The Scout was professionally repainted the original IH Lexington Blue. The truck originally had the 1979 custom stripe (3-stripe) vinyl decals running along the sides. The truck is very straight and solid. All body panels, doors, hood, and tailgate are factory sheet metal.
Features/upgrades:
Champion 3 row aluminum radiator (drop-in replacement for factory radiator, reuses factory mounting holes and fan shroud)
Replaced original International 345 V8 engine with used running 345 (factory spread bore intake with new Edelbrock 1406 carburetor). All seals on the 345 were replaced, and a remanufactured oil pump was installed. The engine compartment was cleaned up and repainted. The mileage on the 345 is unknown, but it runs well with good oil pressure.
Low-profile air filter, since the Edelbrock requires an adapter plate on the intake manifold. Carburetor options are available that can use the stock air filter.
Lokar throttle linkage (no modifications to mount - easily reverted to stock linkage)
Factory power steering (stock Saginaw gearbox and pump), except the factory rag joint was upgraded to a Borgeson joint
Hi-torque starter motor
RPT motor mounts and manual transmission mount (all drop-in replacements for the stock parts)
Straight steer brace
Factory brake system: disks in front, drums in rear, stock parking brake
Factory dash with factory gauges. The speedometer has been replaced and does not show the actual mileage, which is unknown. A mechanical oil pressure gauge was added(which shows PSI) to supplement the stock electrical one (which does not). It is mounted under the dash using the factory dash mounting screws, and is easily removed.
