76 Blazer, engine, trans and axles all rebuilt about 10 yrs ago and then parked in a storage building.

He got it free. Free. With title.

Body's shot, and the tires are dry rotted, but....... FREE.

Gives him something to do.

If you were expecting something else, well then you're a sick fukc....

I thought something else from the title.

But I didn't think you actually would do that. But I had to make sure.

I'm looking at almost $3000 in receipts for work done on this truck in 97-98....
Nearly everything mechanical has been replaced, tie rods, links, brakes, lines...

It's got HEI, and the engine isn't locked up.
Should be able to hear it run tomorrow.

That's what me and my dad did with my first truck. Mine wasn't a blazer (his was, nice '77, still wishes he would have never sold it), but we bought a fixer upper when I was 15 and got it road worthy. Made me respect having a truck much more when I had to do the work on it myself.

He preferred this over a running Geo Tracker...

My attitude is never turn down a free car. Somebody will give you money for it even if it's crap.

Can't wait to see how he likes 5 MPG :teehee:

It runs........

Needs a fuel pump, but it does run, no smoke, and has 40-45psi oil pressure...
Sounds good too!

Does need tires before he can drive it, they are(get this) Q78-15LT's on the truck, extra set are 14/36.5-15LT
Only two of the extra set are anything I'd consider road worthy, and that's just for a day maybe. These are 'vintage' tires. Soon as my son figures out how much he has to spend on tires, I'll post in the wanted section.
