    Hey guys, I just found this page and its damn good to find more blazer owners. I live over here in Britain and there are very few of em over here.
    I dont actually own my own yet but as soon as I find a decent one for sale here I will be buying it. I have been offered this one and I'm thinking of buying it and doing it up. Can you guys take a look at pics and tell me what you think. I know you cant tell much from such basic pics but what the hell.

    Just looking at the front fender scars and cracks, it may have a serious rust problem.

    Ill be going to take a look at it in 2 weeks so I'll be able to check what its like then. Even if it does have a lot of rust I might just buy it anyway. I need a project vechicle and seeing as how the guy wants about 500 bucks for it I may as well get it.

    Donna, No there are next to no blazers out here...Well pretty much no chevys of any type here. I guess its to do with us being a little country that likes little cars. I doubt a blazer would even fit down some of the streets in the older towns and villages.

    $500.00 I'd say.. Heck yeah.. buy it..
    Fender's aren't hard to come by. And by the looks of the rest of the body.. it looks decent.
    The rust on the Fenders looks like it was caused by fender well mouldings... just check underneath the truck for holes in the floopans.. and rocker panels(Just beneath the doors).
    Good luck.. for 500.00 I'd buy it..

    Well, it looks like a 77-79 with an automatic and full time transfer case. Probably has a 350 cid engine and turbo hydromatic 350 transmision. It's green (lol) There are pros and cons to the full time transfer case (NP203) just like there are pros and cons to the auto tranny. Do some searches with words like NP203 and full time transfer case and part-time kit and you should find a lot of the intormation on the pros/cons. For $500, i would do it.
