    Look what was dropped off here today. A 1973 Blazer /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif. I've wanted one for SO long, but this one is well.... just look for yourselves.

    looks- well, like a 73 Blazer... that has lived its entire life in the rust belt. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif look at it this way, you've got more 73 Blazer than you started with.

    Time to cut off the windshield frame, take the door and bed cut/cap pieces, and *make* a full top from a later more complete body... No way would I try to fix that...

    A little bondo and a spray bomb could turn that into a cruiser! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Naw, that one's pretty much just an organ donor. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I used to see GM trucks that looked like that quite frequently when I lived in Massachusetts. They were typically sentenced to snow plow duty once they got that bad. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I see a blazer just like that near my sisters house in lunenburg--been sitting forever,its even the same color.It has a plow frame,but I havrnt seen it move for at least 15 years--every time I go buy I think"I'll offer them 50 bucks for it"--but it would probably break into several peices if you went to move it!Probably has a 205 transfer case in it though.Too bad every old truck here in mass has the same fate in a short time--especially if its been used to plow. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I wish I could say I haven't seen one like that before /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
    And diesel4me,
    Small world! I'm in Townsend, think I've seen that truck somewhere.
    Have you seen the green full-topper at the Citgo station near Sky Cycle? Same thing /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Went to pick up my sister today,noticed that Dufour's junkyard in lancaster is GONE! /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif--I guess its an auto auction now,he had a lot of good vintage stuff there,cant beleive its all gone,and that huge flea market next door,wow--!.I'm originally from fitchburg ma,not far from willard brook in your town!. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifMy hometown sure has changed alot,as has raynham,and not for the better either,I'm afraid! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]yeah, almost as bad as my bed floor. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif as long as i keep the bedmat in there, its plenty solid to use though, the floor supports are fine, its just that the floor panel itself looks like swiss cheese in places. the frame alone is worth what i paid for it, so i cant complain too much.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    That's pretty much what I want to do. The only thing that holds me back is concern over getting the windshield frame grafted in exactly right. I have a windshield frame & top from a 1975 already. Depending on how long I'm stuck here at the computer, I might just go see if that 307 runs. I'm told it may just need a starter. Curious, anyhow... and I want to find out what gears, etc, in the axles. I got it in exchange for website work, so I'm not out anything either way! If nothing else, it's a good conversation piece /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
