Note of Caution!

We had a member who was towing her 1965 Scotty and the tongue failed due to metal fatigue and came off the vehicle. The Scotty was totalled. Be sure to run a safety check of all mechanicals before you head out with your Scotty. If you're interested in buying what's left of it, it is located in Statesville, NC. Contact Lissa.

Invented and manufactured in the 50's and when they're gone, they're gone. These look really great in a vintage Scotty and so useful too!
