In 1953 International Harvester added a proto-SUV to their lineup: the Travelall. Several years later, someone at IH decided it was time for something different. Without any production definition to use as a guide, head designer Ted Ornas was told “design something to replace the horse”. The result was the famous Scout 80. Making its debut in late 1960, the Scout set the stage for 4-wheel drive utility vehicles of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, and today enjoys cult-status among automotive and truck enthusiasts. Michael Banks documents the success story from the 1950s Travelall to the Scout 80, 800, 810, and Scout II versions, also covers variations like the Terra and Spirit.
