Spartan, Defined

Spartan, Defined

1965 International Harvester Scout

New car reviewers tend to throw around terms without regard for definition. Spartan, for example, should refer to a bare-bones, absolutely-no-frills vehicle – but we’ve seen the term used for a luxury SUV that doesn’t have heated seats.

This I-H Scout, however, is indeed Spartan. It has seats, a steering wheel, and a shifter. That’s pretty much it..and that’s all it needs. This one is basically perfect – sure, it has a little bit of surface corrosion, but it’s solid and plain as can be – and it’s basically never been modified. We love it.

It’s on eBay in California with reserve not yet met.1965 International Harvester Scout beige rear quarter 1965 International Harvester Scout interior
