    I have had my Blazer for 1 year now. I'm not to sure on the history of it. I know it's had 2 owners before me. Well the first guy had alot of interior mods done. New dash, carpet, headliner, seats, purplish Black paint. So my question is how do I find out what model of Blazer it is? Like Custom Deluxe, Cheyanne, Silverado? And are those the only ones?
    I'm pretty sure it's not a Silverado. Is there a way I can find out? Plus the dash cover said Sierra Classis MC on it so I'm guessing he took that from a Jimmy

    Thanks

    The only way to really tell is to have seen it in its original state. Custom Deluxe (Chevrolet), Scottsdale will be base line packages. Crank windows, rubber floor mats, hub caps, usually single headlights with a markerlamp below nothing fancy all base line stuff. Cheyanne will be base line with like power locks, still crank windows, still rubber mats etc. Silverado (Chevrolet), Sierra Classic (GMC) will have everything double headlights, carpet interior, power windows power locks, cruise, rally rims...etc.

    he has some of the best history stuff on these trucks!

    Overall its really not a big deal I am in the process of making my custom deluxe a silverado package. Just for comfort issues many people make theirs a custom deluxe for muddin issues. By the way what I said only applies like 82 and up, 82 was the first year of the dual headlights.

    well, thats not totally true. yes silverado was the top of the line trim package..but that dont mean they were louded. i have a 85 silverado k5, and it has only cruise. everything else is standerd, no power windows or lock, no ac, no clock. but it does have the carpet and fancier trip panals.

    Not all blazers are K5's, my 1989 blazer is a V10 model. I am not sure when GM changed the designation but I think it was somewhere in the mid eighties.

    When the truck body style changed along with EFI in 87 they took on the V10 name to denote blazers. Naturally the blazers, and burbans stayed the same body style til 92.

    Actually 81 was the first year for the quad lights up front...my 81 Jimmy was a full load, A/C, pw, pl, ps, pb, tilt wheel, cloth seats, grey carpet, quad lights, intemitant wipers and probably the premium sound for that era...

    Maybe someone stripped all the luxury crap off of yours(that's what I did to my Silverado) because all Silverados are fully loaded......

    what..you mean would have taken a AC out, and power windows, and locks out of it? AND a manual rear window, no i think that some were not louded, as mine is not its an 85 and a silverado.

    Yep I replaced the power windows with manual b/c the power ones sucked! removed power locks, removed all the a/c crap since I don't have the top on it year-round, removed all carpet & insulation, broke off most of the emblems by accident /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif, removed all the exterior trim, no interior trim except door panels and dash. Pretty much the only thing I retained from the Silverado package are the high-back bucket seats! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Oh, and I'm either going to convert the rear window to manual or just get a pickup 'gate.....
