I thought you'd have some responses by now, but since you don't, I'll give my two cents' worth.

I think any running Blazer will bring $4k to $5k. 40,000 on a rebuilt original 350 doesn't mean much as far as I'm concerned. The 1 ton axles might interest someone who is interested in off-roading, but that also means the truck has probably been driven hard. For me the biggest thing would be the cut wheel openings. So while you can probably get $5k (or even more) for your Blazer, your field of potential buyers is going to be smaller.

No offense intended; that's just my opinion.

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

Without knowing anything about rust issues or quality of previous work, or how the axle swaps and lift were done, or the condition of the interior, it is very hard to venture an educated guess. However, that being said, I would think it should bring at least 10-12K. If it didn't have the issues and need for body work/paint, it could bring a good deal more. A lot of money was put into that rig. Good luck with the sale.

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

Right now I think its a decent looking burly blazer. But I agree with Truckster on this one. Because of the mods your potential buyer list has really dwindled.

I get rsavages idea on pricing (man he has a lot of rigs) but there is no way I would personally pay that much for a blazer if I was looking for a toned down one. You could easily have ten grand putting it back to stock - ish.

Even though I am in Calif. I would be looking for a hard top also. Rag tops are temporary

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

For the same reasons as above (body work, paint, seats, axles etc) I would put it in the 6-8k range depending on rust.

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

Like has been said, around 5-7K would be about right. Cutting the wheel wells is what killed this truck.

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

I agree $5000 +, a lot depends on rust. Also as mentioned.... the cut fenders. This is just my opinion of course...

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

As a fellow MA member, I think you could get somewhere between $8-12k depending on the body and rust. I paid $10k for a rust free 72 Blazer that had a basic satin black paint job, a crap drivetrain and almost no stock interior. Every other one I looked at was almost completely rotted out. And all those rot boxes were asking $5-8k. So with all that in mind it really comes down to the condition of the body.

Let me know if you want to sell the Softopper! I'm in the market.

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

I spent $2500 for a real POS, $750 on another, and $500 for another. When I finished rebuilding a frame, rear ends, brakes, etc... I spent about a $1000.

I changed the tub, new rockers, boxes, and floor pans. I sectioned up a couple of bed floors to make a 'new' floor. Re-did some truck doors and cut them for the blazer.

383/350/205 and then final paint. I put maybe $7500 cash in the project and a million dollars worth of man hours. LOL

In the end I ended up with a $8-9K blazer.

Buying one with every thing there and running is worth a chunk.

Reading your post and seeing your pics I would think in the $8K range. The mods for the tires will hurt some, and 'trail truck' characteristics will indeed decrease the target audience.

If I were dead set on selling it I would put $10-12K on it and play the game from there.

Best of luck.

Scott

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

Unless you’re really really hurting you could keep it. They seem to keep climbing in value. I know I wouldn’t sell mine unless times got tight. Look at mine in my sig. I paid a lot less than it’s worth today.

Re: What is my 72 jimmy worth

that door dent is pretty bad as well.

Id put it around 10k and go back and forth if you need to sell.
