  • From all of us at Scout Motors, welcome to the Scout Community! We created this community to provide Scout owners, enthusiasts, and curiosity seekers with a place to engage in discussion, suggestions, stories, and connections. Supportive communities are sometimes hard to find, but we're determined to turn this into one.

    Additionally, Scout Motors wants to hear your feedback and speak directly to the rabid community of owners as unique as America. We'll use the Scout Community to deliver news and information on events and launch updates directly to the group. Although the start of production is anticipated in 2026, many new developments and milestones will occur in the interim. We plan to share them with you on this site and look for your feedback and suggestions.

    How will the Scout Community be run? Think of it this way: this place is your favorite local hangout. You want you enjoy the atmosphere, talk to people who share similar interests, request and receive advice, and generally have an enjoyable time. The Scout Community should be a highlight of your day. We want you to tell stories, share photos, spread your knowledge, and tell us how Scout can deliver great products and experiences. Along the way, Scout Motors will share our journey to production with you.

    Scout is all about respect. We respect our heritage. We respect the land and outdoors. We respect each other. Every person should feel safe, included, and welcomed in the Scout Community. Being kind and courteous to the other forum members is non-negotiable. Friendly debate is welcomed and often produces great outcomes, but we don't want things to get too rowdy. Please take a moment to consider what you post, especially if you think it may insult others. We'll do our best to encourage friendly discourse and to keep the discussions flowing.

    So, welcome to the Scout Community! We encourage you to check back regularly as we plan to engage our members, share teasers, and participate in discussions. The world needs Scouts. Let's get going.

    We are Scout Motors.
  • Welcome Guest to the Scout Registry!

    Our goal is to create the largest Scout Registry in the world. If you own a Scout, regardless of year or condition, we want to see it.

    Just click on the "Add Vehicle" button and you can start the process. You can add a Title (your user name, model year, etc.), Brief Description (color name, model year, model) and a "Tell Us More About Your Scout:" where you can enter in your backstory, details about your Scout, modifications, restoration history, fun ownership stories and photos of your vehicle. You can also come back and modify or add to your registry entry at any time.

    Also, please upload photos if you have them. You can also embed the photos into your story that you create so that people can see larger versions.

    We look forward to seeing and hearing more about your Scout!

Tell us about your Scout:

The Scout was originally bought in 1961 by the local vet clinic in Dodge City KS, and used until 1985 as a farm-call vehicle on farms and ranches.
Story goes that one farmer forgot that his bull was in the pasture with the cows being checked and chased the doc and gored the door of the Scout.
One of the doc's nephews bought it in '85 and moved it to deer-camp up in Colorado, where it was used sparingly and garaged.
The Scout was brought down to Kansas City, MO in 2021, where it was worked on and then sold in Feb. '22
I am the third owner and first outside of the original family/clinic.
36,000 original miles.

Upgrades include:

New suspension
Rollbar with seatbelts
Fog lights
Door lettering to give honor to the original owner/
