    Looking @ a 1990 chevy blazer, with a new 6.2 engine/tranny 30,000 miles ago, fully loaded, mint shape body/interior wise(with the exception of a rocker panel), bone stock right down to the am/fm stereo. The truck has 217,000 on it. Is around $4,000 to much to pay for this? KBB has it's value @ around $2300-2500, but the ones I've seen go on ebay for that price don't compare @ all.

    S'pose it depends on if it's US$ or CDN$, but that seems high.

    I paid $2300US for my CUCV Blazer, only a coupla rust spots around the windshield, 30k on the clock so we assume 130k. Granted I've dumped a bunch of $$ into it since then, but unless you can get receipts for the motor and tranny, it's a 217k truck.

    Just remember that with that many miles you will be fighting door hinges, seat belt retractors, door window regulators etc.

    K5s are hard to find in our area period, forget a diesel powered one... If it has no major rust less the rocker / rocker boxes, its just that much more of a rare find. $3000 sounds pretty much right on for what it sounds like.

    Where abouts in Alberta are you from? If you are in the Edmonton area, I could come with ya and take a look at the rig, I know the trouble spots of these trucks :)
