'71 K5 TX Blue

  • Well, here we go. My son Tyler and I decided about 6 months ago that we wanted to do a 1st gen Blazer together. Over the holidays one of my best friends went home to Ohio for a visit and called me when he found this beast at a friends house. Money was right so I picked her up. Jacked around with the transport/broker scene for a few weeks with no luck. Finally, the weather broke on a weekend my buddy and I had free so we went for it.

    So 2700 miles in 59 hours later we had this truck back in Texas.(Houston to Vincent) 1971 1 owner, 41k original miles, 307 V8, 3spd. High level plan right now is drive first: fuel, brakes, shocks, have a 350 to drop in but plan on rebuilding the 307 with some upgrades, going to 4 spd. More pictures to come soon as we tear into it. We have been lurking here for a couple of months and have been impressed with everyone being helpful and sharing knowledge and ideas. We look forward to having a lot of fun!
