Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
My granddad had one like that. Amazingly good in the snow. Too bad they had tons of rust built in at the factory. Just add water....
You got that built in rust right. I had 2 of them back in the late 60s and early 70s. After they were 3 years old I didn't have to open the window to spit tobacco juice out. Just lean foreword a little and just to the left of my left knee. Those old, low rpm V-8 Packard engines could really plow snow. No drift too deep.---ken
Yep the old one we had to plow the drive way was definitely a rust bucket. One spring dad went to the local newspaper and got rolls of thin sheet metal newsprint and we spent many days riveting it on to the solid parts to cover the holes and custom fit plywood floor boards
Mine was the Sport Top version. Two convertible latches over the windshield and 2 bolts either side along the bed, pull out the side windows, put it on your back and walk it off the tailgate. I used to leave the top off all summer long.
How handy, with the Body Shop just out of frame to the left!Do love me some Scouts though.
Back in the 60's a roommate had one of those. Seems the exhaust pipe was bolted to the frame and was constantly breaking. It was the noisiest thing I've ever been in at highway speeds, well, maybe the 3/4 ton my reserve unit had was worse, if it could have done highway speeds. He traded it on a '67 Impala.

Danville, VA I presume. Last capital of the Confederacy on the shores of the Dan River in southern VA.
Those were the days.
