The Ford Bronco is always credited as the first four-wheel-drive SUV. But in reality, it was the International Harvester Scout that actually was the first which was introduced in 1960 to compete with the Jeep. The Scout 80 (1960–1965) was followed by Scout 800 (1966-1971) and 810 (1971). Today the International Scout is in high demand for project car restoration enthusiasts and collectors.
The second generation Scout II (1971–1980) was introduced in 1971 and was most popular as a great off road vehicle and came with a removable soft or hard top. Compact and nimble, the International Scout is a full foot shorter than a Chevy Blazer and has a two-foot tighter turning radius than a CJ-7 Jeep from this era. Scout II Terra (1976–1980) is the light pickup truck version and the Scout II Traveler (1976–1980) had a removable fiberglass hardtop, and optional third row of seats. We love the international Harvester Scout because it’s a true gem alongside the big names, that’s why we are always on the lookout for them.
The owner of 406 Garage, Ben Palmer, in Bend, Oregon has taken his passion and his deep knowledge of International Harvester trucks to offer spectacular finds for restoration enthusiasts and collectors.

406 Garage Reviews
"We (Reiselt's Machine Works) have bought several International Harvester trucks from Ben at The 406 Garage. He loves finding just the right old truck, especially International. The experience is very personable & he has great contacts for shipping. In Ohio there's nothing like these high desert & western trucks. Highly recommended!"
"I was looking for a square body Travelette that was a short bed, 4x4, manual, with power steering. 406 Garage was vital in finding the truck that I was looking for. Ben made sure to find me the exact options that I was looking for in a rig. His knowledge and expertise were so helpful before and after the sale. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied. 406 Garage is the place for vintage IH vehicles International Harvester trucks and expert knowledge in resurrecting the old beasts back to life. I highly recommend Ben and 406 Garage. Thanks, Ben!"
"I have been building IH International Harvester trucks for a little over 15 years now. I came across Ben with 406 Garage a couple of years ago on Instagram. I was impressed with the quality of trucks he had to offer, and the fact that he was offering project vehicles that are priced for someone who wanted a good starting point but may not want to spend a large amount of money for a complete frame off restoration. I contacted him in the winter of 2019 about sourcing a 70's model service truck for my son and me as a project for him. Within weeks he had found the truck, in the exact quality that I was looking to build off of. Ben handled the transaction, title transfer, and coordinated logistics even through the holiday season. It's good to know that I have a source for future project needs. For anyone who is in the market for a quality classic International Harvester vehicle, I would highly recommend 406 Garage."
"406 Garage is the go-to for honest solid body rigs for your next build. Full disclosure, 406 Garage is the best when buying something from across the country (or local in Oregon). They also do some pretty dang good mechanical work too in case you're wanting something updated."
