    I went to look at a 74 Blazer this weekend. It had a Perkins Diesel 6cyl/turbo400/NP203 Dana44/12b... The lady was asking $1500 and told me it was in "pretty good" shape. I drove for 2 hours to look, boy was I disappointed. Drivers door sagged badly, the passenger door didnt open (hung up on the fender), the tailgate glass wouldnt roll down and it was lifted with 2" square tubing (front and rear). Both front fenders were heavily bondo'd. However the top was in perfect shape. I offered her $700, and she just walked away like I slapped her. I would have felt comfortable with $700 and could have gone higher. Does this sound like something I should persue? I'm not looking for a resto, just a truck to build.

    Welcome! Please fill out your profile so we will know where you are located. If you are already disappointed with the truck, I would say pass on it and look some more. There are a lot of them out there, and with fewer problems.
