Here's the situation: I have a very straight, 98% rust free 70 K5. Some of you have seen it. I have taken it out on the trails 4 times. Stock it is not capable enough for me. I hate to tear it up, or do serious mods to it. So far, it is the only 250, 3 speed Blazer anyone here has heard of. I also have a 70 T Bird, 49K miles, but it has sat outside for 15+ years, so the exterior is in bad shape. The motor is in excellent shape (360 hp 429). I have located a 78 Ford F250 4x4 crewcab shortbed. The body is already beat up on it. My thoughts are flatbed it, put the 429 in it, lift, bigger tires, and make this my trail rig. Go ahead and flame, but I have no real loyalty to any one brand, just want to make use of some of the junk I have laying around. Should I just sell boththe 70s and use the cash to get something else to wheel with????
