Default 1985 M1009 military blazer - needs work - $450 this week (until Thursday)

I have a 1985 military blazer that was my cottage vehicle for the past few years. It is rusty. Always started no matter how cold it was. Went everywhere we pointed it. In the past four years I had put a master cylinder, rebuilt radiator, some brake line, tie rod end and connector link for steering gear, aligned truck, drained and refilled front and rear axles with syn fluid, put new filter and fluid for trans, one oil cooler line from gm, new dual exhaust from engine back, new belts (worn again) etc etc.

Long story short, gas tank started leaking. replaced tank and now it will only start and run for a second and then die when you can get it started. I looked underneath after running a rubber fuel line in case it was sucking air - it looks like the new tank is leaking. I love this truck and it used to run and drive great, but have a shitload of other things to drive so I am going to try selling this as-is.

The tailgate and rear part of tub are bad. inside of the rockers on both sides is trashed. Someone before me had duct taped aluminum in these spots as an awesome fix. I cut out the rear floor above the tank very quickly the other night to run a rubber fuel line to do a final attempt at fixing it (which failed) Most of the body sucks.

I took off the tires and rings I wanted to save last weekend. $450.00

I'll put up pictures later tonight - I can't remember where they are. I have an old pic in my album I'll put here as a placeholder. It looks like that but rustier. Located in Luzerne, MI
