1979 Chevrolet Blazer Custom Deluxe 305 5.0 from North America
Built like a rock
Interior was shot.
Engine needed major help.
Needed body work and paint.
Rust in the floor pan and some on the body.
New shocks and springs.
Engine belts and hoses were shredded/torn.
A couple of more small details.
What can I say? The truck is a tank on wheels. Bought the car maybe 7 years ago, just to have, and recently started a full restoration.
Practically rebuilt the engine with a new blower, spark plugs, fuel lines, oil and brake lines, plus belts and hoses
Tore out all carpet in the interior, and went ahead and did a roll on bed liner on the floor and painted the inside, top and sides, rebuilt the steering column and painted the dashboard.
Has 18" cherry bomb glass packs with 21" tips with a 4 1/2 outlet. The truck sounds great.
Fresh paint that's charcoal grey with metal flake, plus body work and a small 3" body lift.
Hoping to swap the factory manifolds with hooker long tube headers, and run true dual 18 glass packs or maybe header mufflers.
Has a 3" body lift, which was ordered off LMC Truck, but hoping for a 6" rough country suspension lift.
Have to say it's a great first car for a 16 year old.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
