We work hard to preserve the vintage vibe and aesthetic of these old trucks while making them work in our modern context. In order to do so, one of the most beneficial changes to reliability, performance and fuel economy is a LS Drivability Conversion.
Having dedicated technicians, with years of experience specifically converting Scouts, has allowed us to perfect the conversion process and continue to increase efficiency and quality on these cherished vehicles.

Conversion Timeline: Typically our Drivability Conversions take 6-8 weeks for completion, with some additional time for test miles. Every truck is unique and therefore takes time and care to put it through its paces (between 200 – 300 miles) to ensure safety and quality before they are considered done.
Conversion Reservations: We have a limited number of Drivability Conversion reservations every year, but generally we book placements about 12-14 months in advance. To begin the process of reserving a spot for your Scout, please contact us to set up a consultation meeting with one of our Drivability Conversion experts. To expedite the process, please follow up with photos of your Scout.
