    Default 1969 Scout 800 Aristocrat restoration and build up

    Piece by piece bit by bit I plan to bring this rusty old girl back to life by separating the body from the frame and using a rotisserie to do the body work. It has a running 304 backed up by a manual four speed. The engine will be rebuilt with a few bolt on's and a better cam. I will also post video's and updates on my "Fishguts" YouTube channel so follow along and please feel free to offer constructive comments and advice.

    Thanks!

    Default Body is off, engine is apart and sandblasting the frame.

    I must of been out of my mind to take this on but it's too late to turn back now. The left front got hit at some point in it's life. ( I don't know, maybe a tree jumped out in front of it) but, it looks like they put it back together with jb weld and bondo. I'll have to straighten that and replace with new metal. As you can see there are more holes in this thing than there is solid metal but it's only metal and can be replaced. The 304 engine has never been opened up and everything is within specs so the block and heads will be going to the machine shop next week. It's not going to get bored out, just decked and honed. I might port match the heads though. I got my new suspension and brakes on the way so when that's on the frame and painted I'll post a few new pics.

    Thanks for having a look!
