    Jim (Makovai) & I went and looked at this rig today. I came VERY close to buying it - then realized my current rig is in numerous pieces - and how could I justify another Blazer with the lack of time I have right now?

    Jim is still on the fence about getting it.

    69 Blazer
    Two double wall tops (neither in great condition)
    one back hatch
    two hoods for a '69 (one with a baseball sized dent in the front face)
    two sets of front fenders (a pair of which are okay)
    good tailgate
    no windshield
    bondo-city around windshield frame
    the door gap on the driver door starts at the bottom of the vent window around 3/8" and goes flush at the top of the door & windshield top post
    3/4 ton running gear with 4.10s (Dana 44 & 14 bolt)
    4" lift front
    6" blocks rear
    greasable ORD bolts in all leaf spring mounts
    71K mile 350 that supposedly runs good
    new Edelbrock carb
    new Heddman headers - but no other exhaust (other than headers)
    T350 tranny
    203 transfer case that doesn't quite fit with 77 pickup transfer case crossmember
    34x9.50x16.5 swampers on white steelies
    home-made roll bar
    no front seats at all
    back seat from 73+ rig
    no other interior to speak of
    no exhaust

    no title

    $600

    Good deal or not? I wanted it for a beater wheeler rig. Jim wants it to part it out. What would you do?

    Oh - here are some pics...

    The guy basically transplanted a 77 3/4 ton into the Blazer - you can see the sway bar not attached from the 77 truck in this pic.

    You can almost see the rot in the windshield frame here - at top right of window frame - that is total bondo

    thats a great deal.....you should buy it.




    I'm still thinking about it.
    Good buy for a parts car.
    I wouldn't even consider trying to restore it. way too many issues and no title. But as Ben mentioned it does have the 3/4 ton running gear with the spring perches and shock mounts all completed.

    I'd buy it in a heartbeat for a off road only rig, no need to get a title. plus it's a 69 the start of it all.

    Justify? I can't justify what I have now. The word you are looking for is afford. If you can, buy it. Looks cool.

    Id buy it. You could go either way depending on what you wanted to do. But like mentioned you should be able to part it for more then that.
