1980 Hurst Prototype
|Before the demise of the Scout occurred there was much effort and prototyping being done for the 1981 production model and variations. In 1980 one of the IH projects involved working closely with the Hurst Performance Reasearch group to design what was to become known as the Hurst Shawnee Scout. The prototype was based on a 1980 Scout II chassis with a Terra bulkhead, 345 V-8 4 barrel, automatic transmission and a 3.54 gear ratio. This was then sent to Hurst for further development. Hurst built 3 of these special vehicles and placed a dash plaque on each indicating "Hurst Special Vechicle Limited Editon #____".
