Found out I inherited a 1971 Blazer

I found out I inherited a 1971 Blazer,a great step great uncle of mine had it since 1982 whom passed away 3 weeks ago.He was the 2nd owner.My step dad called me this morning saying it is mine.Was a surprise being told it's mine.I know the history of it a little bit,this great step uncle bought it from a new car dealership as a trade in.It was not treated very well,he was pulling small trees,rocks out with it a lot.I have always liked it and have been looking for a 1969 to 1972 Blazer anyway.Have a few things to do to it,one is the engine.Has a bottom end noise,rods pounding having the 307 which is not the original engine.I have a 350 laying around I rebuilt last year that still runs good with 2,000 miles on it which is going to replace the 307.Some body work needs to be done,two small dents in the right side quarter panel.Not a spot of rust on it.I do know the front and rear differentials have been rebuilt with a new ring and pinion and bearings replaced.Went over to check it out this afternoon finding the receipt for it.Happy with it so far.

Re: Found out I inherited a 1971 Blazer

It is still in the garage,my step cousin Gary inherited the house and knows I will be picking it up on Tuesday.I am using my truck and trailer to haul it.Not taking chances of driving it home with the bad bottom end.I am not going with the original distributor too,going with the HEI in the 350 and simple to wire using the HEI.

Congrats - Sounds like a great way to remember a family member! A first gen blazer with no rust in MI! Sounds like he took good care of it!
