Scouting the Future That Never Was: The 1981-85 International Scouts
Saturday, October 17th at 2pm | FREE with Museum Admission
Join us for a live presentation and Q&A session from two of the Country's leading experts on the International Scout. Jim Allen and John Glancy, co-authors of “The International Scout Encyclopedia,” have spent a life-time researching and documenting the story of of this American classic automobile, and now they want to share their knowledge with you.
The International Harvester Scout was a success and trendsetter in the growing sport utility vehicle market of the 1960s. It could be said that mainstream success was an accident because the Scout's original purpose was to supplement the International light truck line. Held back in it's first few years by a corporation more oriented towards marketing agricultural products, the Scout sales department eventually developed more mainstream plans. In this presentation, learn how the SSV, the Supplemental Scout Vehicle, was the first step in bringing a new and unique vision to the SUV market and see in person one of the last remaining prototypes.
Copies of “The International Scout Encyclopedia” will be available for sale and, Jim and John will be autographing copies during the event.
