International Harvester Scout concept, 1979

The International Scout had been a nice plain-box utility vehicle, though the Scout II was an improved and modernized development. The concept shown here was to become the next model. Nice enough sport utility vehicle appearance for the time, but to my mind, more Jeep influences showing than on previous models. 
There were apparently a couple of variations being tested but International Harvester decided in 1980 to get out of the business, concentrating instead on medium and large size trucks. 
This car is on display at the Auburn Cord Duesenber Museum in Auburn In.
