1969 Blazer 4x4 project

Been fighting with my android that doesn't want to upload to the forum and mac that seems to hate me since i don't have a iphone but here goes nothing... again

1969 Blazer supposedly a Texas truck i will guess it was a at one time but it sure saw some salt from the body rust after blasting. Was a 350 350 205 now to be a Ramjet 350 700r4 205

On to the pictures



I'll add more tomorrow if this works , That was December 10 th if i recall.

Re: 1969 Blazer 4x4 project

Looks like you made it to the best forums around and welcome. Good start, and what I wouldn't give for a lift, but for now a creeper works with a 4" lift on the truck

Mike careful with that trouble light, I have read of them causing fires

Re: 1969 Blazer 4x4 project

Yeah they are junk thanks for thr concern, burnt forearms to prove it. I use it when the batteries die on my snap on light. It at least has a led bulb in it now.

More progress pics tonight. It's actually coming back together fairly well.

Re: 1969 Blazer 4x4 project

Thanks to some ideas from 29od1's guide on the 08 up SUV seats I decided to take it a little farther 6 way power drivers seat using power tracks from a 2007 Grand Prix took some work but results were good. Interior all coated in Lizard skin sound and heat coatings.

Re: 1969 Blazer 4x4 project

The frame was next... What a nightmare... previous accident damage and BRUTAL repair welidng the steering box to the frame and about 20 lbs of random metal in the drivers rail to supposedly reinforce it. Found a donor 6cyl clip ( well actually came with the truck i wont take too much credit here ) Used some of it to repair both front rails and Diamond plated inside the rail to reinforce.

Re: 1969 Blazer 4x4 project

Sure i'd take a gander if you don't mind. I had a set laying around but they got into the front driveshaft which is another challenge with the 700r4 and not using the spacer.


Thanks Mike

Wow another great build. Welcome from another Canuck. I'm about 5 hours west of Ottawa in Waterloo region. You aren't wasting any time there. Great progress.

Re: 1969 Blazer 4x4 project

Here's what I have the blazer had a 350-205 setup. I don't know if they will work with the 700r4 setup.

Just need a spacer to bolt up the 700r4 in place of the TH350.
