    I am thinking about getting a 69 Chevelle body or 68-70 Camaro Body for my blazer frame... anyone like the idea? i have seen a few Chevelles and Camaros like this, but normaly only with 35'' tires. it would be on 39.5 inch tires...
    any comments? i love the looks, and my fovorite car is a 69 chevelle. why not have both? if i decide to do it anyone looking for a 74 blazer tub in good condition?

    1974 Chevy Blazer Cheyanne. lots of plans for it....

    I am always one to be different, and I love muscle cars and Blazers, but I wouldn't do it. Why don't you just do 2 different projects and make a bada$$ Blazer and a bada$$ Chevelle? I'd hate to see you get rid of a '74 Blazer body. Just my .02

    If I were you I would find a car/Blazer already done like that so you will not be the one to destroy a K5 and have tyhat on your concious.hehehe.A guy here in Dothan,AL has a 69 Camaro w/ 427, Muncie M21 4 speed, and 35s tires on it. It looks OK I guess. it definitely turns heads!!

    Locally there is a 70s Trans AM on a custom frame and 44s. there is also a (get this) a karman ghia on a custom frame on 44s, there used to be a giant pink caddy on 44s ( i think a burb frame) and finally a Late Z28 on a Blazer frame. The ghia was built by a guy I was an accquiantance (sp) of in high school. He was an older ( 45ish at the time ) guy that worked for the guy that built The old Chi Town Hustler Nissan monster truck. they also had Blu thunder which was a 67-8 camaro monster truck. Chi Town was also called Alien earlier in its life. He was friends w/ one of the Dabneys who is still active in monster truck racing. I also remember long long ago a pinto body on a cj5 frame!! At 1 point my dad tried to convince me to put a different body on our cj5 because it was in such rough shape. I talked him outta that, and we patched it up enuff to last a few more yrs.

    There is a Mercedes Benz Body on a Blazer frame for sale in my area right now. I have also run accross a Triamph sptifire on a shorted Balzer frame areound here also.
    I'd make a custom tube rock buggy before I put a car on a 4wd frame personaly. Keep the fire wall and windsheild from the K5 so I could still register it as a blazer.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    I've never seen one of these that wasn't a redneck contraption. Some guy around here has a CHEVETTE on 38s. It looks stupid.

    Personally I'm not worried about you wasting a K5, I couldn't care less. You're wasting a classic american muscle car that I'd love to have and restore/drag race.

    Do it man Do it!!! Lastyear year while in Mcook Nebraska I saw a 51 cadillac on a k-10........SWEET! It was black with a flame job and big ole mud tires. It was in a salvage yard if anyone would have been there i would have considered a purchase on it.

    I was thinking about doing this a few months ago with an '88 Camaro when I picked up an old gutted (and I mean gutted) '79 K5. No time/space/money for it right now though... Maybe in a few years...
    It'll probably end up and a show-no-go though. Too little low-visibility from a Camaro to do anything more then streets. Never know til I try, though!!

    There's a Caddy limo around me on a Burb frame with a lift nd 3?'s. It's actually looks really cool...

    My .02, I've seen good, bad, and definately ugly! The big deal is that (most) car bodies have teenie wheel wells which mean the conversion will have to be lifted to ridiculous heights. I would hate to see some decent street iron cobbed into a four wheel drive. But maybe something worthless to begin with... 4x4 Checker Marathon anyone?
