2wd Blazer- Buy or not?

Found a very large project vehicle relatively close. Usually these 2wd blazers are few and far between, so even though this one is rough, Iím thinking itís a good candidate, even if itís just t purchase the frame. Guy wants 600 for it. It is just a roller. There is heavy damage to the right rear quarter, but most of the k5ís in my area are rotted way worse anyway. Btw- are the 2wdís still called K5?

Iíve been wanting a cool project to build where my family can take it to cruises and things like that. Not really a car guy and my only other ideal ride would be a 64-66 Suburban. I have myself, my wife, my 4 yo daughter, 2 yo son and my soon to hatch baby.

That's a good price.
I'd find a clean 4x4 blazer and just body swap it.
But I'd have to rebuild everything on the 2wd chassis first.

That’s what I was thinking. The body of a good blazer is attainable, the 2wd frame isn’t unless I wanted to convert one.

I'd grab it, it is priced so he'll take 500.00. bring a trailer. The C5 frame alone is worth more than that
