    what are the differences between a 1970 blazer and a 1971/1972 blazer? because a 50" rear seat will fit a 1971 but i don't know if it will fit in a 1970... why is getting a rear seat so hard? ahhhhhh

    One difference between a 71 and 72 is the rearview mirror. The 72 mounts to the windshield and the 71 mounts to the window frame.

    '72 also has the extra screw in the doors below the wind wing.

    There are no differences in the '69 - '72s that would affect how the rear seat fits. They are all the same.

    The bolt holes are in a different place on '70s. Not off by much but enough that a '72 rear seat's mounts don't line up. Ask me how I know since I have a '70.
