    I am totally biased, but yes, the first gen's are the best. I'm jealous that you found one for $600. It's great to have another 1st gen. owner in our midst.

    today was my first full day to work on it, man im so happy with it. the only real rust i found on it was the floor next to the rockers. as is right now it has 35 inch muds, 4 inch lift with a 2 inch body lift. the old owner told me that he just put the lift on about a year ago, along with a rebuilt trans and motor. after he finshed all of that he just let it sit. so im thinking a tune up, rebuild the carb, and drain the tank and im good to go :D

    cant wait to drive it, thanks for the comments. and welcomeing me to the 1st gen club :bow:

    I guess I shouldn't say too much since I hacked my fenders, permanantly removed the top, filled all the holes, cut the tangs off, and tubbed my fenders. :doah:

    Looks like a great K5. I got my 70 K5 for $600 or 650, don't remember, but unfortunately it has yet to be driven. You got a good deal :bow:

    Nice score !!!! I sure do miss my first K5. Was a 72 with a 454, sm465/NP-205 and many different axles till it ended up with 1 tons. Biggest mistake I ever made was selling it. I don't miss the 76, but I do miss the 72. I will get another one someday.

    Great score!!! There's 5 or 6 in my area that I know of. There's a pretty nice 1st gen Jimmy sitting behind the Chevy dealer. Its been parked with expired tags for about 6 months. I'm keeping my eye on it.

    Score!

    Welcome to the family!

    Now you can experience the joy of shooing off 2 or 3 people every month asking you "Are you selling the Blazer?", notes left on your doorstep, "You wanna trade for my '82. It has a bigger lift!", etc., etc.

    As much as I enjoy turning a wrench, HEI is the easy way to go. Dropping in a distributorless GenIII small block is probably better, but $$$.

    I put a inexpensive Mallory HEI into my Blazer years ago. She starts when I want her to and stubborn plug-fouling issues went away.
