5k: Jesse’s Girl: 1974 International Scout Baja Truck

Preparing a truck for the Baja 500 race will cost tens of thousands of dollars in safety equipment without starting to budget for performance or the original vehicle.   The International Scout won’t win any of the unlimited class races ruled by the big sponsored teams, but it should be good for a classic class or maybe just some mudding around a local swamp.  Find this 1974 International Scout Baja Truck for sale in Plaster City, CA for $5,000 via craigslist.

This Baja truck is setup for racing with a 345 cubic inch V8 mated to a 3-spd auto, a full roll cage and a 14 gallon fuel cell (seems small for anything other than sprint races) and the seller claims that it easily passes tech and has raced in a few races.  The only question we have is…who is Jesse?
