@the_blaze found this blazer at a junkyard and it was just too nice to let it get parted out, so I bought it and brought her home today.
I'll post details when I've got more time.
That's how it begins.
Soon you'll have so many and no time to touch anything
Im so glad to see this going to a good home!
Dang someone sent that to a junkyard? Glad you were able to save it.
Looks like a good start!
What he said. That’s a nice onion
So i'll check back in 10 years when its almost done...First gen problems
lol, so much truth right there.
I could store it for you for those ten years and then you can have it back. My wife would really love a first gen blazer for herself.
Did it come with a title? Not that it matters much.
looks pretty damn complete too.
Here in California if you get it from a junkyard you get a salvage title
I don't think that is going to be the case with this one. The junkyard actually got a dealers license to sell it to me, and there is no indication on the paperwork that it is a salvage title.
That said, on a vehicle this old, I can't imagine it would make a difference to anyone. It's not in good enough shape to be a stock survivor, so anyone that is going to have it is going to rebuild the thing anyway.
Brace the doors....
Wait, am I too early for that line?
It's never too early for that reminder!
That said, the doors on this thing close better than any 1st gen doors I've ever seen. The rocker boxes are solid. Rockers are solid. Top is on and fits well, so maybe never ( or rarely) been off. I was sold on buying this thing the first time I opened and closed a door.
I can't believe you got that at a junkyard... Iv'e seen worse on ebay.
Is that a two door or 4 dr Chevette behind it in the yard pics
Pretty sure it was a 2dr.
First repair that needs to be done, is getting a key for it. I can replace the lock cylinder, but I can't get it out without drilling it. I ran across this post:
I'm going to try pulling the lock if I have time tomorrow and see if there are numbers. It would be nice if I can just get a key made.
