    In trying to expand my buying search a little, I was wondering what is the difference between a blazer and jimmy (69-72)? I searched the board, and it seems that some of the parts are not interchangeable between the blazer and jimmy. Is this true? I imagine the blazer parts are easier to find?

    I just don't want to end up with a jimmy if the parts are much more difficult to find.
    Thanks,
    Tom

    TP,

    For some other interesting trivia on the 1st Gens.....do a keyword search in this forum on the word "QUIZ".....we had a thread a while back about all the subtle changes that happened in those first 4 years of the Blazer.....good reading!
