I have had this truck for 10 years and slowly been restoring it over the years. Overall the truck is very nice but of course does have minor flaws. Any International Scout Midas enthusiast knows how rare these are to find and in restored condition. Comes with the original line setting ticket. This Scout Midas is truly a collector's dream.
From 1977 to 1980 IH contracted with Midas Van Conversion Co. of Elkhart, Indiana, to build special luxury models to be offered through its dealers. Some of these vehicles had swivel bucket seats, shag carpet, color keyed interiors, door panels, headliner, grille guards, dual sunroofs, overhead clocks, 3rd seat, reading lights, tinted windows, fender flares, and special side appliques and paint designs. Models included the Family Cruiser (or just Cruiser), the Street Machine, and Off-Road Vehicle. Another company called Van American (Goshen, Indiana) offered similar options to compete with Midas; however these vehicles were only offered for a short time, making them very rare today.
This listing is being sold as-is and includes no warranty. Buyer is responsible for any/all shipping costs if needed.
