Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Yes your buddy's Blazer Highlander should have the woodgrained lower body molding set including the tailamps, tailgate band and moldings.

The Blazer has the molding set because its a CST! The Highlander package has nothing to do with it having molding or chromed bumper like it does on Promo Package Pickups.

Apparently Blazers used both the upper and lower tailgate moldings in addition to the band. This is not something I have researched (yet) but there is a thread IIRC about it.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Thanks Tim, that's what I thought but I want to be sure. He is doing a very faithful resto on this one. Not his normal paint it resale red or "robyn's egg blue" (in his words).

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

I can add the following from my trip to the salvage yard today. Was after a cup holder insert for my 1999 Suburban. Sadly, I didn't get the insert I was after.

But on the way out I'm walking past this old van, which has the rear doors open. I spy a familiar shape inside the van. At this moment I'm skeptical that it is what I think it is but I go have a look...

I get closer and am still in disbelief. It can't be true...

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Well, I was lucky. First gen K5 blue plaid seats with nice brackets and cupholder blue bowtie console! The console is a little rough and the ash tray is missing but I decided to take it anyway

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Guys, Thanks for getting this link up. While not quite "original" as it could be it still looks great and will only get better with work.

516 Orange with 586 Orange plaid seats is a great combination and one of my top choices. YG7 Promo Package (No A/C) adds its share of options including DF2 stainless camper mirrors.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

That's the one from New York that was on ebay less than a month ago. There was a thread about the aftermarket sunroof installed in the hardtop. I bet the auction can still be found on eBay. Matt

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

A lot less than the current $11k asking!

You have to at least try to find it! :-)

Those are the best looking seats I've seen in a long time. I just bought 6 yards of orange red gm plaid material to build mine.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Do not have SPID for confirmation but I suspect this is a Highlander. Was posted by a member here: http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=546857

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Actually I have that listed as "not" being a Highlander. Since I don't have a picture of the SPID with the pictures and links I saved, it may have been from a phone conversation with one of the two sellers!

Long sorted mess started over 2-1/2 years ago.
Was for sale locally, then bought to be parted creating a feeding frenzy but instead resold. Not sure who has it now.
Anyway if you like pages of reading....

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Almost speechless that you have those details on this K5. Can you help me out with a winning lottery number?

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Blazer/Jimmy?

Can't begin to tell you how much I wanted that Blazer. So I followed it closer than many...

Lottery numbers if I could do those I'd have a number of heavy pickups to enjoy.
