Re: My new 1970 factory 2wd blazer

Truck was painted in a fleet colour, so you'll have to find out which company originally ordered it to find out which green it is. It's a long shot, but I remember Bell Canada using vehicles in a dark green.
I worked at the Oshawa plant for 30 years, and I remember certain fleet colours coming down the line. Depending on the size of the order, they would paint those vehicles all in one large batch. One colour that I remember was an orange that I believe was for CN Rail, but was not available for purchase to the consumer.

Yeah the guy I bought it from has heard it may have been a fleet vehicle for BC Tel.

Would it be best to keep it the original color you think ?

Very nice. So it shipped with just a driver's utility bucket, then someone added a passenger's utility bucket and a home brewed jump seat ? looks a bit lowered too.

No they are utility buckets. And they have the turquoise colored backs on them to match the door panels and visors , etc...

The thing in the middle is home made. I will be removing it and maybe put a console just for the convenience of cup holders

Sweet truck. Looks to be in good overall shape. I'd keep it stock. Color looks good as is.

Here is another pic of the blazer. Pulled it into the shop to replace the clutch. *** The black dots in the photo are on my camera, not on the truck. **
