That is a very nice Blazer for sure. You are in good company here. Most of the members on the site are very knowledgeable and are very passionate about these trucks, blazers and suburbans and it is a way of life for many.

There is always inspiration to be found here

Take care,
Tom

Re: thank you 67-72 forum members

Very nice! It looks like my 2wd Blazer's big brother. Is yours a 70? I wonder why mine has the "8-350" emblem under the "K5 Blazer" emblem and yours is under the marker light? I guess there was no rhyme or reason to where the engine emblems went?

Re: thank you 67-72 forum members

Ive never seen the emblem under the k5 blazer emblem. Always under the marker light, is yours original or has the fender been replaced?

Re: thank you 67-72 forum members

Mine has all original paint and sheetmetal. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...=626978&page=3

Schwinn's Blazer that he just sold is the same way, but has obviously been repainted. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=614517

Sorry for messing up your thread bl705k, yours really is a nice one.

Love it! What paint color is it? The three blues that year were so similar I can't tell.
