Cummins Powered Scout 800-New Vintage
The story starts with the engine.
Bryon Dorr

This 1967 Scout 800 is fitted with beta engine #1 of the new Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel crate motor. New Legend 4x4 connected with Cummins at Overland Expo East 2016, where the two companies hatched a plan to put an R2.8 into one of New Legend’s Scout 800 builds. Needless to say, it wasn’t hard for New Legend to find a customer for such an impressive unique vehicle, even at around $100K for the build.

NEW LEGEND 4X4

New Legend 4x4 is passionate about preserving and elevating the functionality of classic 4x4’s, and the company’s roots started with the parts, service and restoration company, Anything Scout. As customers demanded higher levels of refinement, performance and ability over the years the company started integrating modern parts and systems, while retaining the classic vehicle’s looks and style. The company uses OEM and top aftermarket engineering to breathe new life and performance into classic 4x4 legends. In the end, the vehicles New Legend 4x4 creates provide a modern driving feel while providing a driving experience that just can’t be had in modern vehicles.
