International Scout 2 and 80/800 VS3 Chassis and Powertrain

Velocity International Scout 2 and 80/800 Chassis and Powertrain

What is the one thing that is lacking with any International Scout restoration project, until now? A quality chassis and suspension package. Our Velocity VS3 Chassis was designed to serve as the perfect foundation for any Scout restoration project.

Take your build to the next level with a VS3 Chassis package, featuring our VS2 Chassis with powertrain included. The VS3 has been professionally engineered and custom-crafted to meet every challenge your Scout will face, with a powertrain that can tackle anything you put in front of it.

We’ve equipped our VS2 rolling chassis with a 430-hp LS3 V8 and 4L65E automatic transmission, plus a two-speed Atlas II transfer case to deliver all that power to the axles. It’s fitted with custom Velocity driveshafts, and a custom-designed aluminum oil pan ensures perfect clearance. From the Hydroboost braking system, transmission cooler, and Wilwood master cylinder, your Scout chassis and powertrain needs have been completely addressed in one Velocity package.
