    I would really be skeptical of the "actual mileage". Unless this person is a family member or friend, I would say that you should leave that aspect of the truck out of the equation.
    -what does the engine look like?
    -Does it look like it only has 56k on it? oil all over it, etc,
    -305....yikes.

    as fuji said, since he has to get it off the street, press him for a lower price....$1200(?) to help him out /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    i'd offer a grand maybe he'll bite since it has to be off the street and if you want it i wouldn't give more than 1,200 b/c your gonna have to tweak that 305 to get any good power out of it or drop a crate 350 in it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you like the Blazer I say get it ! I paid $1,200 for mine and was not concerned about the factory running gear because I knew I was changing it all out. I wanted a Blazer that had a descent body and this one was good enough.
    Sounds like a real good price if it is what you want .
    Good luck , Tom
