    I have been looking for something like this for some time. Something small and quick,powerful enough to pull the trailer if needed, but small enough to get some decent mpg. Here is what it came in.

    1992 Chevy Blazer 2 door.
    4.3 V6
    Auto trans
    Came with ac and all the bells and whistles.

    This makes the 3rd red Chevy in a row i have owned. And 5 total. :dizzy:

    This will be my "beater" drive around do whatever, to save wear on the 4x4.

    The best part, I have about $700 in it. :cool:

    My ex-g/f's folks just sold one like that about 2 months ago. Almost identical just it was gray. Think they got the same thing for it too. You done good. :cool:

    That's a good looking truck. I'm going to buy a beater truck like that too when I'm old enough to drive, hopefully it will look just as good.

    I am well aware of that, in fact, I have a bare 350 on a stand in the shop right now. :D

    It is going in next week for some exhaust work. :cool:

    Find yourself a 454 and turbo 400 to drop in that beast. Could be a fun toy!

    Can you say OVERKILL!!!!!!!

    I am more of a small block dude, if i was to do a conversion it would get a rebuild 350, with a small cam headers and an Edelbrock intake setup. 350 turbo with shift kit. Then it would need to be lowered about 1'' in the front and 2'' in the back with a sway-bar package and stiff shocks, some new wheels and wider tires..........................Now it 'starting to sound like fun. :alien:
