Hey guys I'm new here and its my 1st post. I recently picked up a 1985 Blazer from a friend of my dads for free, with a blown 305 in it. Clean body, good tires, so me and my dad figured perfect LSx canidate. Pricewise the 5.3L/4L60E seems like my best bet, shopping for them right now, still have some prepping to do in the meantime. Interior wasnt too bad rustwise considering all the foam under the carpet was soaked when I removed it. Body itself has minimal rust. When I got her: Stripped interior: rust more rust tired 305 well prepared I plan on spraying bedline in the interior and fabricating some sheetmetal doorpanels.
