    In the end , if someone will buy it , someone will sell it. If no one will pay the price , then the seller is forced to reconsider his selling strategy. However , no matter how irritating it is to see a complete vintage kit broken down into parts and sold piece by piece , someone will buy parts and the seller will keep selling. Places like Ebay are wonderful in that they get stuff onto the market that we would otherwise never see , but a bigger audience also allows for more people who are willing to pay more.

    Try searching this forum there is a thread. I found it by googling the subject. The Scout II was produced in different variants from 1971 to 1980

    Anytime I see a kit or a builtup at a flea market or an antique shop they are way overpriced. especially here in CT. Matchbox cars too. Its frustrating because a junk shop or flea market should be where you can find a deal. Many of these people are self appointed antique experts who try to tell you why the piece of junk you are holding is so valuable. Ebay aint so bad after all.

    Awesome. I bought one of these at a flea market for $2.50 once. Now I watch as they as escalate beyond my reach on EBay . I wish I had thought of Shortening the bed.

    OH the parts are somewhere! i chipped the paint on the tailgate,sanded it off, and put it somewhere with the FIRST photetched grille i made! I think the tailights are with it too. Fortunately i had a second kit so if i cant find those parts ill just cannibalize that one . Murphys law says as soon as i modify the new tailgate the old one will magically appear !This whole kit survived being packed away and stored while we demolished our house and built a new one, amazingly with no damage!

    Well I finally finished this one. Started it around 1999 or so. It's got a few flaws that got me discouraged. Right now I can't find the tailgate or the tailights bezels but it's as done as it ever will be otherwise.
