72 Blazer 2wd

New to the forum and have a converted 2wd blazer with a 396sbc and Weiand blower being delivered tomorrow. Just curious if anyone has seen this blazer on here as I don't know much about the build other than its very custom.

It looks familiar, but I've looked at 2wd blazers for so long they all start looking the same! Nice blazer, have fun, Rg

Re: 72 Blazer 2wd

Nice score. I think it looks familiar as well so I skimmed the 2wd blazer thread but didn't see it. Where did you buy it from, CA?

Also looks like you are near me. Planning on cruising it around and taking it to a few shows?

Think there is one on Nov. 25th in Davidson at Ingersoll Rand.

Thanks. Yeah, I had it shipped from Utah but I am pretty sure it was build in California based on what the guy told me.

I do plan on taking it to a few shows here and there with a few cruises to beach and back. Can't make the 25th but have been looking for some others around the area.

Nice to hear that they did the trailing arm suspension on the conversion. Great truck!
