    Looks like a 73-75 blazer that someone swapped an 80's front clip on. The bed sides should work just find. Why not use the body or windshield frame and make your k5 into a full convertible? :wink1:

    Is that blazer a full convetible? If so, I might be nutts but I dont like the full convertible blazer's. My blazer just needs some odd's and in's to complete it so there are just a few parts I need off of it.

    Thats alot of work to switch tubs if im not going to be happy with it.

    Thanks for all the help guys, ill probably tow it on home today and see what happenes from there

    If the tub is rust free. Why not sell it and buy something to cut up. Full convertibles usually sell for more. That would make a nice restore due to the front clip already being swapped and a nice body.

    Because of the full removable top that only came on 73-75 k5's of that generation and the roundish dash pad instead of the squared off style of the 80's. I think it just has a 1987 front clip.

    Looks to be in too good of shape to rob parts off of. After you get it I'd check with the DMV on titles for abandoned vehicles. I wouldn't tell them you have it or anything, just ask about the procedures. Might be worth it to sell whole.

    At some point you would have to give them the VIN to see if it was reported stolen or has outstanding tickets before you could get the title but hey, if it's stolen it's the right thing to do. If it's got lots of tickets well, then ...mmmm.. might take awhile to report it's location.

    I found out whos it is, but the guy that knows the guy cant get a hold of him. He said its been sitting there for three years. I guess the guy had plans for it but never followed through. Ill just wait until he gets a hold of the guy to see if its alright if I tow it away.

    The whole interior is stripped, no winshield ( it just snowed) the carb was stolen off of it but has a manifold and motor, tran, transfer case ect... The body work that someone did on it seems ok but my magnet doesnt stick so I think they just fiber glass and bondoed it, isnt that a poor way of doing body work? The only thing I like about the older full converitibles are the front clips and this one was changed out to a newer 80's clip, so I dont know, ill probably just take the things I want off of it and try and sell or give away the rest..
