It is a $400 1991 Blazer Sport 4 door bought for the princely sum of $400 off Craigslist and driven home on 2 cylinders. Turned out to be a super easy fix and I've been driving it off and on ever since. It's never left me stranded and never really broke down on me until recently when the speedometer wires got pinched in the transfer case shifter and shorted out. It's also 99.9% rust free.
I had specifically wanted a 4.3 TBI truck with a floor shifted transfer case. I wasn't looking for a 4 door but this one was too nice to pass up and now I actually prefer the 4 door.
Since buying it, I've made the following modifications using parts from corresponding car/truck/van:
Exterior: Third brake light: 1994 S10 Blazer Hood strut: 1994 Olds Cutlass Wheels/tires: 1993 GMC Jimmy 2WD Rear window: 1993 GMC Typhoon Spare tire carrier modified to hold HiLift Jack: 1994 GMC Jimmy Reel Out Underhood light: 1992 Olds Cutlass
Interior: Steering wheel: 1986 Chevy Corvette Steering column from the pivot pins up: 1989 Cadillac Deville Gauge cluster: 1993 S10 Blazer - I did have a modified tach cluster from a 1988 Blazer in, but took it out. Express Down front windows: 1995 Pontiac Bonneville All-Window-Down - I tap the back two window switches and all 4 windows roll down by themselves: 1994 Olds Cutlass Updated chime module with automatic locks that lock at 9MPH, turn signal chime if I leave my signal on too long: 1996 Olds Cutlass (my chime is a less annoying "ding, ding, ding" instead of the original "doooooooooooooooooot" Overhead console: 1994 S10 Blazer Homelink for above: 2000 Olds Bravada Compass/Outside Temp for OHC: 1996 Jimmy Auto-dimming rear view mirror with inside temp: 1999 Cadillac Escalade Remote Keyless Entry with illuminated entry and factory alarm: 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix Leather power seats with power lumbar: 1993 S10 Blazer Retained Accessory Power: 1995 Chevy Camaro CD player modified for iPod AUX input: 1995 Buick Riviera 2 piece sunvisors with vanity mirrors: 1994 S10 Blazer Cargo mat: 1993 Olds Bravada Dome override switch: 1995 Pontiac TransSport Window lockout switch: 1992 Olds 98 Glove box lock delete: 1999 GMC Jimmy
Under the hood: Steering shaft: 1988 Jeep Cherokee Horns: 1999 Cadillac DeVille
I have some more plans for it, but I'll need some rare parts to complete them.
