    OK i've had this for sale here before and i do hate to part with her, but she's just got too much for me and i want a daily driver 72 blazer (show).

    Here are specs. Also if you send me email or call me, because sometimes i don't get notified on responses to the thread. Larry 406-599-7742 or larry_edwards@luvshack.org Can view all pics at:
    http://www.luvshack.org/newBlazer.shtm


    SORRY - the price is $12,500 OBO

    Well it's sad, but I have to get rid of the beast! I am using as a daily driver and its just killing me, gets about 6 MPG. I bought about a year ago and it's everything I always wanted AND more! Probably a little too much for me, as the axels are 1.25 ton and have detroit locker, which is not good for driving high speeds (I did drive from Idaho fine at around 70MPH). This guy definitely turns heads. I have all the receipts which total more than $30,000 in parts. The engine alone is worth around $9,000 and has been Dyno'd at 500HP. Guy told me with blower could get over 1000 HP out of her. I truely love this vehicle but just too old for it I guess. Would consider trades looking for nice pickup like 2001 Ford 250 Lariat (or even prestine 72 blazer that I could use as a daily driver), or other??, but needs to be "NICE" ride (preferably with heated seats!) Here are all the specs, please call or email me with any questions email: mailto:larry_edwards@luvshack.org cell: 406.579.2666

    …The Bad News

    · Rust underneath on both doors (see picture)

    · Dent in Driver’s Side Rear Quarter panel (see picture)

    · Rust on top of bed rail (see picture)

    · Paint fair, but for “show” needs to be repainted
    Also, if i was going to keep her, i would get hydrolic assist steering as well.

    Yes, i really do love her, but i'm over 40 now and just too tough getting in and out of it. I would hate to lower it and remove the axels (detroit locker) etc...but i really want a nice "show" truck and this is a rock crawler beast as it is now. Thanks again and let me know if you win the lotto! :)

    I guess I could say she's low mileage. Has an annoying whine coming from the intake though..
