For sale in our Indianapolis Show Room is a 1978 International Harvester Scout Terra Diesel. nternational Harvester began building trucks and pickups in 1907. In 1953 it added a truck-based people carrier, the Travelall. In the late 1950s it began to design a competitor for the two-door Jeep CJ 4x4. The 1961 model year Scout 80 made its debut in late 1960. This Terra Diesel is in great condition with only 36,000 actual miles. This Terra Diesel is rare and is a perfect example of the brand.The SD33 inline 6 cylinder motor is immaculte as is the body of this beast. The interior is excellent shape as well. This 4x4 is an automatic and runs and drives great. The paint is a great color the tires are almost new.

For much of its history in agriculture and commercial truck manufacturing, International Harvester had diesel options. The first was a gas-start diesel developed for tractors in 1932, with commercial diesel trucks following five years later. IH got into the light truck business in 1907, but as with other American manufacturers, diesels were not high on the "things-to-develop" list—at least not until the gas crises of the 1970s, when everyone found themselves scrambling to develop diesel-powered cars and trucks.

In 1975 IH announced two new additions to the Scout line (this right on the heels of an announcement that the rest of the light truck line was to be discontinued). The Scout Terra and Scout Traveler were mechanically identical to the Scout II, with the wheelbase stretched a foot and a half to 118 inches. The Terra had a short cab and a bulkhead that made it into a half-ton pickup, while the Traveler had a full-length fiberglass roof to make it a two-door full-size SUV. Both rigs could be ordered with or without tops, and the tops and bulkheads could be removed or exchanged by the owners.
