Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

Just posted by mistake in the truck forum. Lot 681 at Barrett-Jackson, a black 1971 Blazer w/LS3 conversion, just sold for $200,000.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

That was a bit shocking! Even by Barrett Jackson standards.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

OK. What makes this blazer worth $220,000 besides the buyer bid it up that high. I don't see one costing that much all parts and labor added together. But I ain't good at cyphering

The good news is that I can tell my wife I'm OK to spend another $196,000 on my Blazer.

I noticed that it had the same wheels on it as those on my Jimmy, which were undoubtedly the major value driver.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

My green blazer is for sale for the fair price of $100k to any interested party.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

For those that watched this go through was it a charity or something? I looked at the pics and description on the barrett jackson web site and it looked nice but $40k nice not $220k. If it was for a charity it would make a little more sense but still crazy. Didn't look that special at all. Just a nice resto with a 6.2 LS swap....

Nope, not a charity auction... Just a couple of people with more money than sense.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

I'm not going to say crazy. If someone has that kind of disposable income and that is what they want to spend it on. All the power to them.

They could be in this forum next week looking for advice on how to restore it back to original.

When I looked at before it went up on stage I thought maybe 50-60 k.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

Good for the seller. As far as the buyer, it's worth that much to them. Could he turn around and resell for 220K? doubtful. I look at it like this. You could probably find a blazer for 5-15K as a project depending on the condition. Take it to a restoration shop and tell them to build you a blazer just like this one that sold for 220K. It would probably cost you about 100K, give our take

I agree. If you took it to a shop to have built you'll spend 2+ years waiting, wondering and stressing about the final outcome. For some people it just makes sense to buy one done and enjoy it.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Lot 681

It's definitely a beautiful truck, but if I had $200K burning a hole in my pocket, I so could find a better investment than a 1971 Blazer. This is what happend to the classic Mopars and really all the muscle cars. These guys that have tons of money kept buying them for waaaay too much and now you can't find a really nice Challenger or Road Runner for reasonable money. Far as I'm concerned they ruined it for the rest of us. Hope that doesn't happen with these GM trucks!
