And all it needs is a finishing touch .
Building a project is always more satisfying than buying an already-finished project, but the problem with doing so means you're likely either getting a car that's been rotting away in a field or it's a project someone else already started and lost half the parts for. Restore A Muscle Car provides the perfect solution for project-minded classic car buyers, and this 1971 Chevrolet Blazer is just a little finishing away from being roadworthy once again.
From the images, it looks like this would be a great project for someone who isn't necessarily into body work since the body panels have already been installed and primered and the drivetrain appears to be all connected (the engine is even running but the seller says it does need to be tuned up). What it does need is the entire interior includes seats, door panels, dash pad, etc., while the exterior just needs door handles, bumpers and lights. All in all, someone already did the most labor-intensive work, and this K5 Blazer just needs the finishing touches. Check out this K5 Blazer to see what the finished product could look like.
This truck already looks cool with the stock ride height and 31-inch tires, but the sky is the limit in terms of where the completed restoration could take this truck. Under the hood is a tried-and-true 350 CID V-8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. This truck is equipped with factory air conditioning, power steering and power brakes, and if you're planning on any off-road adventures, it has the locking hubs up front. Even the removable hard top looks to be in great shape, and that's pretty impressive since these tops are getting harder to come by.
As the price of these big Blazers continues to sky rocket, this incomplete restoration is a budget-friendly project way of scoring yourself a desirable classic without dropping a lot of money. Speaking of price tag, you'll have to contact the seller to see how much this 1971 Chevrolet Blazer will set you back, but the longer you wait, the higher the price will get as the restoration continues.
