no trades unless they really swing to my favor(and I like whatever it is!), now taking $2,300 cash...come with a deposit!
The good: undercarriage is much cleaner than a Northern blazer, as it lived in Florida most of it’s life. And frame is straight, to my knowledge no accidents and it is straight. Been in my family since 1994 or 1995. 350 w/ Edelbrock high rise intake/ w/ Holley 4 barrell carb. Dual exhaust with headers, block lift in springs to get 35’s on her. Newer 4:10 gears around 2000 that replace the factory 4:11 gears. 1997 had a competition rv cam put in it. Had a newer battery put in 1.5 yrs ago(but hasn’t been fired in awhile, so will need charged). New spark plugs last spring, oil change/flush, new air filter, new pcv valve, also new fuel filter, newer front floor pans put in 10 years ago?

Extra parts: perfect hood, hood springs, and cowl from a 69 truck(no rust, hood has bowtie on front, kinda rare only made in '69. You could take the front bowtie off and make it look original per the year), have a master cylinder, have multiple side lenses covers in good shape, have seats/ brackets that could replace front seats as those are weathered(also the seats I have could be covered with black leather or vinyl to match the nice door panel skins I have). Have a replacement tailgate with no rust. Brand new black leather door skins(very nice). Heater core(as it was taken out because it was leaking & was in Florida and no heat needed...) Black/blue Genuine Chevrolet license plate

The bad: my dad gave this to my uncle and it has sat for a long time. Carb needs rebuilt or replaced . Gas needs drained and probably tank cleaned or just put on a bigger tank(this is only like a 10 gallon tank), rear floor(in middle under back seat rusted through, but could easily patch in a new panel or even just a truck bed piece and you would never know). The tranny was very rough and leaking from front seal when I got it, and just needs a rebuild or replace with a 700R4 or something, tires were newer from my uncle but he let them dryrot(so only sandworthy). Rear hatch was severely broken when we got this and my dad threw it out(however I have a lead on a nice one for only $250), headers and exhaust have leaks and the bad gas…so this thing backfires some once started so it is kinda hard right now to appreciate the beauty of what she was and what she could be again. This was a sweet engine, and I don't think she is tired yet! Radiator needs recored or a new radiator. I would recommend draining all fluids. Drive train is solid once you get the tranny & carb rolling again. Owner that sold it to us had bondoed a couple spots on bottom of quarter panels that are now needing small patch panels but really not bad per the year. My uncle lost the clamps to secure the topper and it will need a weatherstrip between topper and sidewalls. Topper needs a little fiberglass repair in front corner and hairline crack near rear hatch. Rockers were replaced once before(around 2000?) but either need tlc or replaced again. Definitely needs a paint job. Really needs new shocks all the way around. May need new rubber: hoses, belts, bushings? I said it sat for quite awhile. If I would have had the time/$, I was going to buy a used 80's or 90's Blazer and get the nicer interior, tranny, etc and make the Blazer top notch.
