Inside the Build: The Gas Monkey 1979 “Hell Scout!”

Born with a desire for off-roading, this 1979 International Scout II was re-born on Fast N’ Loud as a 700+hp tire shredding Hell Scout.


The heart, soul and muscle of this build is a 2017 Hellcrate engine paired up with a Hellcat 8 speed and an Aeromotive fuel system. It was a tight squeeze with the new Chris Alston Chassis, but the Monkeys were able to get this massive power plant in. With the Hellcrate engine successfully installed the Scout was dead, and the Hell Scout born!



With a top of a line chassis and a Dutchman rear end, GMG wanted to make sure this classic was comfortable to ride in too so a coil-over 4 link suspension was also installed. Then to give it the perfect sound, a MagnaFlow custom-built exhaust was added.



To put all that power to the ground and make it look good doing it, this Scout was fitted with REVO Forged wheels (18-inch in the front and 20-inch in the rear) with Nitto NT555 tires that are ready to be shredded. Needing some extra stopping power while burning rubber a Wilwood brake kit was installed to the Hell Scout.



Moving to the front, the grill is something that you won’t see everyday! This grill is one-of-a-kind, machined right here at Gas Monkey Garage in our HAAS machine. Directly behind that grill you will see a Ron Davis Radiator keeping that Hellcrate engine running much cool.


Taking a step inside the Hell Scout, the interior kept same look and feel of a vintage Scout, but freshly redone. With new gauges from Red Line Gauge Works and a brand new AC system from Vintage Air, you are going to stay cool and look cool while cruising around town in this build!



With a complete frame off restoration and taking this Scout down a whole new path, this build turned out to be showroom quality. With a build like this you just gotta show it off! Maybe you’ll see it at a certain automotive gathering in Vegas later this year…
