    My buddy is looking at a stock 72 blazer that is near perfect. origional motor/trans with matching serial numbers. origional interior in good condition. The owner is the son of the origional purchaser. He has repaired all of the rust, and painted it 4 years ago. the motor was rebuilt 100,000k ago (tired?). He says the hard top has never been removed. All in all a very nice truck.

    The guy is asking $7500.00. My budy is looking to lift and customize. He is not a hard corp wheeler.

    What do you think of lifting and customizing an otherwise perfect stock Blazer? Do you think the price is too high?

    thanks for the thoughts!

    I think that's pretty high for a relatively unrestored '72 with no high $$ mods. If it had no rust ever, maybe close to that.


    Thanks for the seats by the way /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif hope your trip went well. I'm looking at getting those seats in this weekend and taking her out to the desert for some muddy fun.

    I am of the opinion that since there were only roughly 40k of the 72 made over 30 years ago that heavily modifying one that is otherwise in good shape is damn near a crime against nature. If you find one thats all shitty rusty and otherwise boogered up, then by all means, cut away... otherwise you can fit a 4" lift and 33's and maybe 35's inder the stock fenders without any trimming.

    as for the price... if its truly stock and in near perfect shape its probably worth the $$. again, there werent that many made and that was over 30 years ago.

    Buy it, then make it cherry with 33s & minamal lift. Clean and scrub, toss a crate 350 in it, turn around and list it for $12,000 on ebay and now your bud has 12 grand to build whatever he wants /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sounds a bit high. I picked mine up for $5k with a hot 350, 4"lift 33's and some rust but pretty good paint..

    It would be a crime to un-stock a nice Blazer like that./forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif

    I suggest he just passes on this one.... or buy it for an investment.

    Survivors are going to be at a primium as so many have been modified or wrecked over the years.
