Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

FWIW - is the build decal (SPID) on the inside of the glove box door and if so can you post a photo of it?

In for this one, the door caps alone makes it very interesting, could be the one...

I'm friends with two guys who worked for hickey enterprises in "the day." I will send pics to him. He's a wealth of knowledge and has debunked some trucks I found but this might be legit. Matt

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

You should be able to do a VIN search through your DMV. I purchased a 67 Dart convertible back in 93 because it was most likely the car featured in an Elvis movie, and even though I'm in Canada, I was able to get a list of previous owners from the DMV in the last state it was registered in. Unfortunately, it only showed previous owners from the continental US, and my car was originally from Hawaii, so I was never able to authenticate it. It's worth a try IMHO.

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

Thanks for the info. I have the truck stored at my parents ranch in northern Cal which is a few hours away. I only took a couple of pics to show a friend.
I will be going up later next week and will take additional pics. If this is not a Hickey I would be shocked. This is not just a 'bolt on' Hickey. Here's a pic that was on my phone of front shocks mount factory riveted and roll bar welded to it. i will try to do a dmv search but it has not been registered and sat for about 15-20 years so it is likely out of system. What is an approximate value for this if in fact it is genuine?

This is the only post I've done and not sure if I'm responding proper. What is the quote option?

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

If its not one of Hickey's trucks, it was definitely ordered to be a race prepped truck for someone. Hickey wasn't the only one messing around with Chevy trucks back in the day. Could be another factory effort.

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

A friend is trying to talk me into doing a thing on you tube documenting the details of this truck and my restoration efforts. Not too many old ladies out there doing this sort of thing. Could be an interesting project....Spent a bit of time in front of cameras in my late teens but that was 40 years and 60 pounds ago. I get to wear coveralls this time!! Will start a new thread when I get things going. Thanks for the comments and info.

Does anyone know where I can acquire a copy of the 1972 January/February Issue of Off Road Magazine?

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

My personal opinion sure looks like it to me. Its been modified since the magazine pictures were taken though. The tank is in the same spot and the cage is the same but modified.

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

Hmm missed that part very strange though very similar to the one in the pictures. Still worth something as a vintage racer. Hopefully there is info on it somewhere out there.

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

Hey guys... check out this hood latch.

I got this hood latch off of the same truck, as I mentioned before, Unfortunately I didn't know anything about Hickey parts to want to cut off the spare gas tanks mounted to the inside of the bed!!! ������. It may have had more parts, unbeknownst to me.. I hadn't noticed how different this hood latch was to the other ones on my 68 50th Annv, or 71 Suburban..

Anyhow, this hood latch has an "H" stamped on it, and it doesn't look like any other hood latch I have on any of my other trucks.

Let me know your thoughts... the truck was already missing the hood..so I don't know if the Hickey hoods came with their own latch...

The plot thickens...

Was there a SPID in the glovebox? I know this was asked, but didn't see an update. I could have missed it though.

Can't see the average Joe wanting to cut and remove the windshield frame either...

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

I cut the windshield frame, and if I had the room, I would have taken the whole truck.. lol
But he got rid of it right away- went to the crusher... The shame is that the entire tub was straight. Typical rust in typical areas, but otherwise it was in very good shape. I still have the windshield frame...it has all those riveted buttons, the kind installed for a soft top.

Re: ....such a thing as a Vic Hickey edition Blazer??

from what I have seen they had more than one of those 69 blazers,seeing that 69 made my week,i have knowledge or know nothing and can be skeptical of things involving blazers,but that 69 is one of the baja blazers, it looks correct,all the pics I have seen look like this blazer, gotta be the real deal hickey blazer raced in 69!I have two magazines with detailed pictures of that blazer,the pop hot rodding one and a four wheeler from 1969.It just looks right,i have no doubt!

The "H" is for Hancock (not Hickey) and the stamp is visible to varying degrees on my hood latches (example pic from my 72 Blazer).

Nothing special about that hood latch as Deadhead pointed out. I have an Eagle Ventures hood on my Blazer (the one that people mistakenly refer to as a Hickey hood), and it uses the stock hood latch.
