1979 K5 Blazer - Passes California Smog!!

Well the time has come to part with my project rig. I just got a new '72 Jimmy so the Blazer has got to go. I've got a few pictures and can take more upon request for anyone seriously interested.

Where to begin...She may not be the pretties rig, but there is some serious power under the hood. The best part about this truck is the engine. It's a 383 Stroker custom built by Eddings Engine in San Fernando California. Dyno'd with 330HP and 395ft.lbs. at the crank. I've given some unsuspecting BMW drivers a run for their money at traffic lights.

This truck has passed full California Smog testing multiple times and is currently registered through Aug 2012. For those of you in California you know how much a truck that can pass smog is worth. Truck is located in San Jose, CA

I'm looking to get $4,000 OBO for everything listed here. May trade for street, touring, or dual-sport motorcycle

The list is long and the pictures are at the bottom.

I am not interested in parting the truck out at this time. This is a great project for someone who has the time to put everything together.

I apologize that these pictures aren't the greatest. I had to use my cell phone after my digital camera died on me.

So I've got 181 views and not a single reply. Am I way off on my price or is there just really no interest?

It's most likely the price.
Here people see anything over $4k and no D60 in the front they turn away.
You put a lot of money into your engine but no two guys agree on how to build a nice engine so you will be losing a lot on your project to get it sold.

Good Point! Price Reduced!!

I would have put the motor in my '72, but I'm getting a 6.0L fuel injected engine in the next few weeks.

I'm going to have a complete take out 350 from the '72 that I'll have to get rid of. When all is said and done I'll give away the 350 to whoever wants it.
