Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Thanks everyone for coming by and saying hi!! All my old pals and new ones in the making!!! Should be fun, slow moving right now while I figure out how to completely ruin this little Blazer!! Pulled the interior.....or lack of, out and unbolted the roll bar, the paint removal has been my focus the past couple of days. Front end is gone and currently looking for a 67 clip....these pics are a week or two old so there really isn't any paint left on the rest of the body now.

I'm subscribed, I saw your going porterbuilt too, you definitely won't regret it. Sorry to hear what happened to your 67, it was a beautiful truck.

Yep, placing my order in about 30 minutes!! My 67 is missed terribly and it sucks to see the bed sitting just a few feet away from this build.

You are right lolife, it's a 73. It's a cool custom from back in the day, someone had good taste on that build.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

I was able to get a little done to my topless tub this weekend!!! Pulled the top off, extracted the roll bar and made the engine and trans dissapear!! Moved on to the custom side of things after that. I laid the windsheild back a few inches and cut the top of the passenger door off to see what all needs to be done to get it flush with the rest of the body. PORTERBUILT EXTREME DROPMEMBER FRONT AND REAR ORDERED ALONG WITH ACCUAIR E-LEVEL KIT!!! YAAAAY!!!!!!

Pretty good progress and I like that you're laying the windshield back.

Not bad for a weekend! The windsheild being laid back actually made it lower too. Not to mention all the gas I'll save with the better aerodynamics!!!!

Is the SPID intact? I'm sure DeadheadNM and some of us would like to see what it "used to be".....There is a thread for it: "Blazer SPID thread?". Thanks

The SPID is intact, but painted over. I will try to clean it since I am curious as well. I do know it is a CST, but that's about it. It has been customized, not very good I might add, probably twice from what I can tell. Nothing original is left but guages, glove box door and heat ducting/switches. The column is out of a late model from the looks of it. I'll see if the SPID stays legible and try my best to clean it.

Hahahha, the 73 Cheyenne will see no hackin', just a good clean up, a few new parts and MAYBE some new paint....same color. Definitely some new carpet, seat covers and dash......

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

So did you buy the 73 too Dave? I would love to find one of those. My first truck was a 73. I hated that truck at times but it taught me so much.
Keep the updates coming.

My buddy bought it from the same guy that I bought mine from. It was sunk into the ground in a barn, literally a barn find. We installed an HEI distributor this past weekend and got it running, it sounds good and the AC even works in it!!!
