    Ok, here's the deal. I found a 1972 Blazer CST near me (California) and want to know what it's worth. It's got a nice 350 motor with Edelbrock cam, intake and carb., Flowmaster exhaust, Accel HEI Ingnition and runs and sounds sweet. Turbo 350 trans with an NP205 T-case, 12 bolt rearend with a Dana 44 up front. Shifts great and shifts great in the T-case (4 low and high). It's got a 4" Tough Country lift with ALCOA rims and BFG Mud Terrains 33x12.5-15 almost new, also has a $425 tach (if that helps). It needs paint and the rockers, floorboards and other little places have rust. Possibly needs a new front fender, lot's of bondo in it. The body is pretty straight besides that fender. No carpet, stereo, dash pad, heater, AC, and door panels. Has nice aftermarket seats and roll bar. Runs like a champ! Oh almost forgot, it's got a crack in the top going from the bottom lip to the bottom of the side window. I think that's it, please, I need help on this, any response is great. Thanx...

    Make an offer of $2800 to $3000 since it needs some body work. Other than that, it sounds good.

    Yes, if that is what you want. Check out how bad the rust is. I have yet to see a 72 Blazer for less than $3k in CA, and most of them don't run very well.
    Good luck.

    I agree with 45acp: I don't like rust. It's expensive to fix unless you are a good bodyman or know a good one who will trade work with you.

    check out the typical problem areas, windshield frame, rocker boxes, and floors, if the windshield frame is rusted out, i say no. if its not, maybe depending on how much of the body needs fixed, BEWARE of bondo, if someone has done crappy work in one place there is an excellent chance it is covering up more problems somewhere else. Good luck.
