Classic Car Overview

First generation Blazers may have been built in a short run, from 1969-1972, but they have become perhaps the most classic Blazer of all! With a following comparable to that of the original Ford Bronco, the Blazer is a topless SUV essential. Before going into the details, youre probably wondering why this Jimmy is being referred to as a Blazer! Thats because this truck is sort of both. The front sheet metal and rear tailgate are Jimmy components, but the body and VIN are Blazer. The GMC sheet metal gives it a unique look, and this 2WD beauty is a street machine ready to burn some rubber and turn some heads! Originally a 350 V8, 4-speed manual, 3.73 rear gear truck when new, this Blazer was already set up to be the perfect start to a high-powered custom build. The exterior is finished in a gorgeous light blue, which appears to be GMs Arctic Blue. The blue with white hard top combination is absolutely killer, and provides a classic look without detracting from the mean stance. The had top is the double-wall version, which could be considered more desirable due to increased rigidity and sound deadening properties. The bed side markers have been removed and shaved, as well as the gas tank filler which has been relocated to the bed interior. This provides a cleaner exterior look, without noticeably altering the original look. Additionally, the tailgate handle has also been shaved and relocated to the inside of the tailgate to complete the shaved look. Lastly, a custom half-top was made from a 1967 C10 single cab roof. This allows you to configure the Blazer as a regular pickup, should you so desire, by simply changing the top. The interior has some custom touches, but unless youre a Blazer/Jimmy expert, you may not initially notice them. The most desirable interior upgrade is the addition of a buddy bucket seat from a 1967 C10. This setup allows driver and passenger to retain bucket seats, while adding a middle seat the fold into an arm rest, similar to a bench seat setup. While this option was never available for Blazers or Jimmys, it is an excellent upgrade. The interior has been finished in a blue similar to the exterior color, which is a nice touch and gives the truck a wonderful feeling of continuity. Aside from an add-on tachometer, the interior retains a largely original feel. The drivetrain is where this Blazer really shines! Under the hood is a 468 cubic inch Chevrolet big block V8 with 10.7:1 compression. Upgrades include JE forged pistons, Edlebrock Performer RPM Aluminum Heads, Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake manifold, Howards Roller Cam and Roller Rockers, Comp Cams Valve Springs, ARP fasteners, Fel-Pro gaskets, as well as a distributor, Blaster SS coil, 6A ignition control, and plug wires all from MSD. Lastly, the icing on the cake that is this engine is the F.A.S.T EZ EFI self-tuning fuel injection system and a set of Sanderson headers. Thats right, this puppy is fuel injected! It fires right up every time; no pumping the pedal to prime the carburetor. Hooked up to the 468 engine is a New Process A833 4-speed transmission (a 3-speed with an overdrive gear). Other transmission-related upgrades include a Ram PowerGrip clutch, Ram billet steel flywheel, and a Dennys aluminum driveshaft. The rear end is a Ford 9 with 3.50 rear gears, which is coveted combination amongst hotrodders and custom builders everywhere. Additionally, a Yukon Dura Grip positraction unit has been installed in the rear. With four-wheel disc brakes, not only does this Blazer move like a bat out of hell, it also stops on a dime! But wait, the list goes on! There are almost too many upgrades to list, but were going to anyway. Additional upgrades include: Early Classic Drop Spindles Early Classic Super Track Bar Early Classic Shock Relocator Kit Early Classic Front Sway Bar Tubular Upper Control Arms Porterbuilt Trailing Arm X-member US Mags Rambler wheels Continental Extreme Contact tires Griffin Aluminum Radiator Flex-A-Lite electric fans Jackrabbit Retractable Tonneau cover (for use with half cab) Flowmaster 50 Series Mufflers Porterbuilt Hood Hinges In-tank electric fuel pump Vintage Cal Customs Valve covers This Blazer is one serious build! It was stripped to bare metal before being painted, all of the weatherstripping has been replaced, and you would have an extremely hard time finding an item on this truck that hasnt been either replaced or refinished. The only exception is the glovebox door inside, which has been left untouched to show the original color plus the original options list. If youre looking for an absolute show-stopped of unbelievable quality, this Jimmy-cloned Blazer may just be your final stop.
