Is it a IH Scout? If it is, is IH or only International Scout?

As I remember, we used to just say International but some people insist on calling them International Harvester

Here's an ad - http://www.adclassix.com/images/64ihscout.jpg -- Notice at the bottom - Scout by International

rjluna2 is right. Even when we say "International" and the ads say "International," It's still an International Harvester. Note the "IH" logo on the lower right-hand corner of the same ad big dave showed us.

My personal take on this based on the ad's wording, is that the vehicle (despite being manufactured by 'International Harvester Co.') is branded as 'International' making it an International Scout.

References are made to both "Scout by International" and "International Dealer or Branch" plus the fact that International is registered as a trade-mark on its own. This leads me to the conclusion they are trying to brand the vehicles separately rather than associate it with Internal Harvester despite the 'IH' logo.

Since the "Harvester" part was never dropped until IHC was bought by Navistar in 1987, I'll have to go with International Harvester on all Scouts, all light-duty trucks, and all vehicles made before then.

This is an older '61-65 Scout 80. The '66-70 Scout 800's had an IH emblem on the hood instead. & the wipers were on the bottom of the windhield.

And, yes, it is an "International Scout". Harvester was never used in their marketing of the vehicle itself, only in reference to the company.
