Project straight 6 driver

Recently picked up this 1972 factory straight 6 4x4 3ott blazer. My plans are to get it running and driving well. And slowly over time fixing up the body. At one time someone replaced all the floor and hacked the front and rear frame rails off for off road bumpers I can guess. Really only the doors and fenders are rotted, and a small hole above the driver rear wheel, also needs tq boxes replaced. Other than that the truck is decently solid. Once it’s running and driving my plans are to get the new doors, fenders and just get everything taken down to bare metal and seal it in with a cheap paint job. As far as bumpers I will prob throw some roll pans on it until I can source fixing the frame rails. My whole objective with this truck is just to fix it up slowly and have fun with it. Don’t really plan on doing a full restoration on it. But who knows once my stepside 70 is done that may change. Sorry if the photos are large my phone won’t let me shrink them.

Re: Project straight 6 driver

Looking forward to seeing another k5 running around the Saginaw area! If you need any parts let me know! I'm finally done with my Jimmy and will be parting out the blazer behind the barn and letting go of the rest of my stuff. Good luck on the build and let me know if you need any help or advice

Thanks guys! And I am sure I will be out to see if there is anything I can scrounge off of the parts truck you have. Sadly my blazer is in pretty rough shape but I just couldn’t let it die just yet!
