Re: How Many 4 Wheel Drive Blazers Do We Have?

I guess I introduced myself on the wrong thread. I'm 32, my dad special ordered this 71 Jimmy 350/350/205/3.73. The mud pic was taken when it was nearly new. Dad bought it specifically for trail running and racing in the PNW4WDA (Pacific North West 4 Wheel Drive Assoc). Its been converted to a 2wd once so that the Jimmy frame could have a super shortened box put on a pickup body for racing and even was rolled once. Then it was put back to a 4wd so that the racetruck could be converted to become the motorhome seen in a 2002 revision as a car hauler. I was given the truck as my Eagle Scout present from my parents in 1995 when I was nearly done (early present FTW) and daily drove it all through my senior year. Once I graduated HS and started college, I couldnt afford the fuel working part time at a grocery store, so the Jimmy got parked. That was late 98 I think. So its been sitting ever since, in the back of the barn, pretty much as seen in the pic with the windshield banner "71 Jimmy" with the exception of 15X8 baby moons/smoothies and new 33/12.5 mud tires I got for a graduation present.

Less than a year old I think:


As seen summer of 1996 just after HS grad:


As Dad daily drove it summer of 85, note the factory soft top was still in decent shape.


The old racetruck (68 GMC half ton converted to 72 Chev clip 3/4 ton running an Olds 455, 4spd, divorced T-case, 4X4 with a rear tag axle):



When the Jimmy was barely 2 years old, Dad slid through an icey intersection and was T-boned. No more first gen trucks were left on the lots, so the insurance company paid him off and called it a total (yet the title stayed clear since that was before the dawn of time), and since he worked at a body shop, he paid himself to rebuild it. I'll have to dig up a real scanner and locate the old racing pics and more from my HS days. I sure miss the truck, I'm going to be in need of a truck by springtime, and I'd like to not have to deal with emissions, have a gnarly V8 again, and have an old car for cruises. ...I wonder if Dad will let me dig it out of the back of his barn and restore the brakes/fluids/tire pressures to driveable duty again?

Heres what $2000 bucks gets you from a 90 year old german. he said with an accent "I use it to pull stump on my property". and i thought stump puller was just a saying. all original 350, 4 gear, 373s, np205. BONE STOCK! I added a malory hei, electric fan and replace the fabbed bumpers with reproduction ones.

Talking Re: How Many 4 Wheel Drive Blazers Do We Have?

Here is my 4x4 72' I just got it a couple months ago. The family I bought it from worked on it for 3 years, they did a great job.

I added a softtopper, a tuffy security console, a Procomp distributor/ignition, converted the breather to a PCV valve, fixed the gas gauge, and installed a heavy duty radiator, new battery, regulator on alternator, etc.)

Re: How Many 4 Wheel Drive Blazers Do We Have?

Just picked this '72 Blazer 4x4 up last week. So far, just cleaned it up a little, but I'll be doing a quick resto on it. 2-4" lift, 33-35s, clean and detail the suspension, interior, fix any rust and then re-paint the original Hugger Orange on it.

Im on the opposite side of town (35 & Judson) ... if you do any work on your blazer send me a message. I am not a mechanical person, but now that I have my beast, I have been trying to watch and learn more often.
