    Re: \'71 Blazer/Jimmy FS

    why in the freak would someone part out a rig like one of these ?? i guess some ppl dont know how rare these things are, you dont ever see a single one ever, its crazy.

    and this one doesnt even have any real bad rust, just a little on pass side very fixable.

    id love to snag hold of it, i can dream for right now,

    good luck

    Well... I suppose that some of us that currently drive a first gen like it when others part them out... so we can turn OUR rigs into "nice" rigs with OEM parts. I know... call me crazy... Also, if you move to a state that doesnt salt the roads (like Oregon or Washington) you will see them semi-often... There are 4 that "live" within a 1/4 mile radius of me.

    Re: \'71 Blazer/Jimmy FS

    You still don't part something that nice out. Like I always say, these are getting rarer by the day and parting or scrapping one will only decrease the number remaining. That would just be ridiculous to bring a Blazer in that shape to its death. Hell, my K5 is a huge POS, but I still don't go around begging people to part out their nice trucks just so mine can be nicer. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif So Lance, here's to hoping you can buy it! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Most of the ones I see parted out are either rusted into the ground or wrecked with bent frames. This one will probably take a little more work than the pictures let on but still a good one to fix. No comments on the '70 GMC!!??? Check it out! $5500

    I would gladly swap him a chevy tailgate for his GMC one. The one I have is even about the same blue in color from a 72 Cheyenne /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Tailgate is pretty straight on the outside but can't remember what it's like on the inside. I seriously might end up with it and I might be interested in swapping you. I'll let you know or pm me if you don't hear for a while. Thanks.

    1st Gens are not THAT rare.... (though maybe in IL) Spend a few minutes with AutoTrader.com or CollectorCarTrader.com and you can find plenty of them at any given moment.

    I know of a local 1969 K5 (I'll grant you 69s are a LOT more rare than 72s!) for $1800, and at least two more '72s....

    Seriously, buy a one-way ticket to CA, AZ, NV or wherever and drive a NICE one back with you. Knowing what I know now about the vehicles out here (I'm originally from New England) I'd never buy a local rust-belt vehicle again....there are just too many nice clean examples still around at good prices.

    I would agree they are not particularly "rare", you just have to pony up the dollars. There are about 4 or so in the Trader right now in Colorado ranging from $3K to $12K.

    No arguement from me.....1st Gens are worth the money! Heck, I just spent $2000 for a bare 1969 K5 tub and front clip (no frame, no running gear, etc) and I'm HAPPY about it.

    ....then again, I'm one of those "big-headed 1st Gen guys"!! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
