    If I didn't already have the bronco project this is awesome. Whoever gets it don't you dare touch the patina. You clear coat her and let it be the beauty she is.

    To each their own, but she's earned that patina. I like it when owners let them wear it like a badge of honor.

    I would tend to agree if it was original but it looks like it has the remains of some kind of homemade camo job already.

    I just wonder how @tRidiot is going to take on a project like this when he's been putting off getting a new engine for his Tahoe for years.

    Actually I've got someone to do the Tahoe, probably going to do the rebuild over the next couple weeks.

    This project is a long term project. Learn as you go, do a bunch of research, collect parts, sand, primer, paint, restore, etc. And the motor on this will be a lot easier to deal with than the motor in my Tahoe, I'm thinking.

    <edit> And I've wanted a Scout or a Javelin to restore since I was in my teens.

    I honestly have no clue. Haven’t looked that close.

    It does not.

    I do think it’s got some crappy camo job on it already, but it does have “Rallye” on the hood, which may be original?

    Clear coat it and it would be a perfect bug out vehicle. No body would think you had anything worth stealing. :P
