    Really wanting to keep this but money is tight so if I get an offer I will sell if not I will keep it. I know this is worthless without pics but I am working in LA and the truck is in TX. If someone is serious I can get the wife to snap some pics in a couple of days. I have been after this blazer for about 5 years finally got buddy to sell it to me but I have been working in LA so I haven't gotten to mess with it alot.

    This is not a parts truck just needs the right attention.

    80 K5
    4X4

    350 Engine (rebuilt about 2 years ago with cam upgrade less than 10K on it. I have added an edelbrock performer Air Gap Intake manifold). This engine will run!!! I took off the manifolds to put on headers headers did not fit I put the manifold back on just to test the engine but didn't hook up the exhaust.

    TH350- Tranny worked had a leak at the rear seal that needs to be replaced has leaked most of the fluid out so that is why the tranny doesn't work.

    12-Bolt rear end
    Front not sure (doesn't look like a 10 bolt but I haven't looked to close)
    Gears not sure


    It has some 30/9.5 wild countries actually in pretty good shape white wagon wheels.

    Rear glass is busted out I do have a replacement at my house comes with vehicle.

    Interior is real rough but all the guages work.

    Rust - there are only 2 spots of surface rust one on roof one on door jam. This is easily repaired with some sanding it is not the deep down rust that causes problems just needs to be cleaned up.

    Needs new hood, my buddy has had it sitting and the hinges got real stiff and he bent the hood trying to close it.

    This is an awsome begining to a build up because the engine and tranny are still good and the truck is solid. Many times you find a decent shape truck but everything is horrible on it this one looks bad but has a solid foundation.

    Price: $700 have title you have to pick it up.

    The floors are good, rockers are good solid but ugly type truck...and really not that bad just faded white. Please understand my wife has her hands real full with 2 kids, all she has to do and the truck is at a buddies but I will try and get her to go by tomorrow or monday. I know you need pics and this thread is kind of useless without them but I thought of it today and had the time.

    thanks

    i understand...my wife sometimes seems like a circus monkey trainer with our 3 kids. :D

    when she can get some pics have her send them to sikZ28@cableone.net

    will the tranny work if there is fluid put in it?

    Will do she said she would go by today. It is my understanding that the tranny is fine. He was using to drive to the deer lease. He lost the lease so he parked it said the tranny leaked most of the fluid so he hasn't driven it since. When he parked it there were no problems with the tranny but you can see it leaked out the rear seal.

    I have only had this vehicle a couple of months and I have been in LA the whole time. Ain't trying to screw no one I really like the blazer has a lot of potential because all the guts are there and it is solid.

    I will tell you what I know.

    the rims and tires in the pics don't come with it I have an extra set for it. You can see the new valve covers (at least 5 HP:laugh: ) and the new intake.

    No it is not lifted at all. Needs a set of Zero rates in the rear or a lift. Gotta good used lift maybe lined up.

    Also yes the pass side looks just like the drivers. Wasn't trying to hide it that is just the only pics the wife took.

    If I don't sell it in a couple of weeks I am gonna park it behind a friends house and get to it when I get to it. Been pricing some things for it and I could make it a decent off road rig pretty cheap. Anyway just let me know what you are thinking.
