    Ah, the smell of woodgrain (decals). We know you are out there, hiding, staying out of the public eye.

    Take us back to the days of Brady Bunch where woodgrain two tone was an option on Blazers and Suburbans. Let's see some pics of those rare family trucksters.

    Post 'em if you got 'em.

    I think you're confusing our junk with Jeep Wagoneers. ;) Those are the only SUV's that I can ever remember seeing with woodgrain sides. :shocked:

    Ah, not true. Blazers and Suburbans had it as an option in the '70s. I've only actually seen 3 or 4 Suburbans with the decal and have never seen a Blazer in person.

    Here's a pic of one off of eBay a couple of years ago.

    That's why I was wondering if anyone had one.

    Just curiosity. I find it an oddity in Blazer history.

    Hmm, does that option show up in the factory literature? I've been a Blazerhead most of my life and don't recall ever seeing that listed as an option anywhere. Perhaps dremu knows... :confused:

    Yeah, they do show up in Dremu's brochures. Check out the Blazers and Suburbans from '73 to around '76.

    The woodgrain applique has a part number(s) in the parts books.

    In our Hunting Log,is a picture one of my dad's buddies '74 with the woodgrain.

    Well you could just take a roll of woodgrain decal and cut the gas cap shape out of it and stick it on! Yeah!

    Mine has the woodgrain door panels but they're partially painted black from the PO. However, because of nostalgia I'm going to replace them and probably add the woodgrain instrument bezel as well :D !!

    This will be a good thread for reference purposes too :bow: :bow: !

    That's what I was thinking about 3 years ago when I saw one on eBay for about $4. I had to get it. Maybe someday I'll do a woodgrain Blazer myself.

    Great minds think alike...

    Kind of off the subject of woodgrain, but I oftentimes buy parts on eBay I don't need just because they're THERE. I came across these '73-'74 Blazer fender emblems yesterday and bought them just because I NEVER see them for sale ANYWHERE. $10 plus shipping. :D

    Did you guys know that the Blazers from '73-'76 used two different styles of woodgrain on their door panels? '73-'74s used a dark walnut, and '75-'76s used a lighter burlwood-style design.

    Here's an ad for a '74 Blazer (dark walnut)...

    and here are two photos of the '75-'76 burlwood style interiors...

    Any way to bring that stuff back to life? My '74 Cheyenne has the woodgrain interior, but it's way faded. Replace? Ditch?
