    more input, more input. i've bought 3 gen blazers, heres a summary of price and condition

    1) 1000.00 - 72 CST model, body molding, single wall top, a/c(NotWorkingButAllThere), p/s, p/b, 350cid, th350, np205, not running, but made it run with a new distributor, carb, and gastank, rust on rocker pannels, foot cowl area, and lower front and rear pilars. dented bumpers, rear passanger wheel well.

    2) - 750.00 71 4x4 CST. completely disasebled NO RUST, missing a lot of parts.

    3) - 3500.00 72 VERY CLEAN basic model, slight surface rust on rocker panels, working A/C and everything else. NO DENTS OR DINGS.

    gotta see how much and where is the rust, dents, is it a CST model, auto or manual, skidplates, tranny, 4x4 working, single or double wall top, how many miles, has it been converted oer to disk brakes. etc etc...

    ARQ.

    I think it also depends on where you live. If there is a shortage of them, expect to pay quite a bit more. Especially if it's in real good condition. Rust will also be a consideration.

    Good luck,

    CST = "Custom Sport Truck"?? It was basically a higher trim level on the Blazers...more mouldings, a more complete list of options, etc.

    Remember, what's weird about the 1st Gen Blazers is that EVERYTHING was an option. You want a hardtop (optional)...you want a seat for the passenger (optional)....you want a spare tire (optional)

    Kinda funny, but I guess the idea was to keep the base price low, and let people option them for what they intended to use them for. There are links on the web to the original Sales Brochures for these trucks and those can be really fun to look at....

    Ok, I get it /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif . I wish that GM still offered options and not "Option Packages"... packages are so lame...

    Just from what you described I'd say good find. Just look at the rocker boxes and windshield frame for rust. If there isn't any bad rust I'd say great find and congratulations. You'll know it's a single wall if the top is held on by bolts that bolt down. If you can see the heads of the bolts then you've got a single wall top (Prefered top).
