    New to the forum.
    I just traded for a 72 Blazer. The truck has an excellent running gear in it. It has an aluminum head 350 with a mild cam and the transmission is new rebuild. Even frontend and rearend have new seals and bearings.
    The body is rusted beyond repair. The rear floor is almost gone. No rocker panels left, quarter panels rusted, fenders rusted, even door hinges are rusted of of body on drivers side.
    I was looking for a fiberglass body, but cannot find one. I am in Florida, but will drive and pick up the right body. My 13 year old son and I want to do a frame of rebuild over the next few years, and this will end up his truck.
    Anyone have info.

    Thanks,
    Rusty

    There was a 2wd 1st gen blazer at a junkyard close by. Body was in pretty good shape quarters had minor rust. Odd for being a mid atlantic truck. I can Check If you want or you can call Petrys at 410 848 8590 Located in Maryland wait till after 9:00 in the morning Ask for Dave. It may not be there any more. It was sitting by the crusher last time I saw it. Green with white top. Six cylinder.
