Where there 2WD 1st Gen Blazers? If so, post some pics. I want to see some hotrod 1st Gens
Yes, 2wd blazers were made, but they are a lot more rare than 4wd versions. Oh, and I think they were still called a K5 and not a C5 like one would think.
Here is a good website that will have more information on them:
Here is a good link with some pictures:
70-72, small production numbers.
I was gonna say only a couple years and very low numbers, I'v only seen 2 in person that were not made.
I'm actually looking at a 2wd burb my buddy has, have to get storage emptied and move the 4x4.
Well I want one. I think I will look for another 1st Gen body... and then find a 2nd Gen blazer and do a body swap. I just want a cool summer cruiser of the 2wd persuasion. Of course if I could find a 73-75 2nd Gen 2wd I would just drive that. What I want is a full convert DD.
heres one for ya Lee....
why not stick a truck cab on the blazer frame with a flat bed and do the blazer up as a 2wd???
yeah there used to be i believe a 71 2wd runnin around my city. looked real sharp, it was up on ebay a couple times. dark blue with a black top...sexaaay
Well ironically I can go pick up a '69 2wd PU for $100 if I want it. It has no engine or trans but the body is supposed to be good.
Honestly I will have to sit in it and see how comfortable I am in a standard cab where I can not move the seat back as far as I can in a sub/blazer.
That is a pretty good idea though... I could also cut down the bed on the 2WD and have a stubby bed on a blazer frame, VERY COOL!!!
wheres this truck at? between arturo, his dad and I ,we could find a home for it.
Well I am going to get the truck no matter what... but then I have to decide if I am going to take your idea and run with it. I have been reading this thread... and I really like the idea.
The truck is here in Corvallis... But I won't tell where. With all you junk hunters out there I could loose it if I tip my hand... LOL.
But I may need to find a trailer to haul it. My trailer is loaded down with '69 Blazer parts. I am going to need to rent one this week and go pick it up.
