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 its 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.
