Click the above pic for the second page of pics.
this truck has had many owners and lots of paint and a few incarnations.
it started out as a 4 cylinder tbi engine with 4 speed manual transmission. it was converted to the engine in the lower picture - a 2.8 v6 multi port injection and the 4 speed from my 82. along with a set of 15x8 camaro steel rally wheels. it was a blast to drive and pretty darn quick. well after a winter with the 2wd and a near wipe out with a pole. doug decided that he needed 4wd. eventually the 85 blazer was found, which is also on this site. but with some later problems ultimately sealed the death of the blazer but deeper detail will be on that page, along with some pics. the truck was then sold to barry. he had it for little while and even changed out the 4 speed for a 5 speed. but after he hit a fellow student with it on the drivers side and then he thought that the head gaskets had gone. so he decided to get rid of it, so i bought it. well after while, my buddy steve needed a car after he wrecked the last one, so i sold it to him. well with a few problems while he had it including the death of the first v6. a junk yard engine was put in. but it was a newer one since we thought that the first was an 88 motor, well it wasn't! so with a rather bad vibration and an exhaust leak. steve drove it till the tranny bell split in two! and upon later inspection, the motor killed 4 of the 6 plugs and had at least one dead cylinder in #2. the exhaust valve had a hole in it. so with that, i got the truck back. this time for keeps. i began work on it shortly afterwards. it wasn't long after i started work on the truck that doug decided that he was getting rid of the blazer. to avoid problems with selling it and to pay off his debt to me, i got pick of some of the things that i wanted off it. so the motor in the blazer is seeing continuing life in this truck. along with some body parts and interior parts. the rebirth of this truck will include....
