    my \'69 blazer (pics)

    I found a 1969 blazer 4x4, its in decent shape for the year and this being Wisconsin, the question I am having is this. it has what looks like a truck tail gate and on the cap are hinges where glass would go. is this accurate? I thought all blazer had the back window in the tailgate?

    thanks


    I just got it home eariler today and here are some pics
    I don't think it is to bad for $500.00 this blazer was some kids project and the parents had stored it for ten years and were tired of seeing it I have yet to start the motor, supoosedly its rebuilt and the 350 turbo tranny is also

    here is the link for the pics

    thanks, now where would I find a glass top.
    this thing has been sitting in a barn for 20 years and they are
    moving so they have to get rid of it. (which is why I got it for $500.)
    thanks for the help

    ther first thing I would do is get rid of the lift blocks in the front as well as so shackles. those lift blocks could come out under impact and you will need some sronger shackles in the rear. just my opinion.
    colin

    IF its not broke dont fix it

    I planned on taking out the blocks, and put in a spring kit, 4 inches in the front and 6 in the rear. but that had to wait until next month. so if anyone has a used set let me know
    thanks

    thanks, my daughter (age 9) said she wanted a red car with a 'top down' so I plan on painting it red and when she is ready to drive I would let her use this,
