    I found a 73 Blazer for $300!!!! I called the # and asked all about it. Evidently, it has no motor, but everything else is still there. The lady said the fenders were cut for those "fender flare thingies" but the rest of the body and top are in "good" shape.

    I go pick it up on Tuesday.

    I am thinking 6in lift and 38's! I am going to steal the 60 and 14 bolt out of my 86 K3500 and maybe transplant a 6.2 diesel.

    Ok, so for the questions.

    Is there anything I should look for?

    I know how to look for rust and frame damage, but what else should I look for? I am not getting too picky for $300, but I dont want to get screwed either.

    Thanks!

    look for the part of the truck that is missing that makes it worth only 300$
