Default 1978 Blazer

Starting a new project. The goal is a very reliable vehicle for Goodguys Hall of Fame Tour.

I found a nice 2wd Blazer with good patina and little to no rust. It looked like some one found it and threw a hillbilly slam job on it and some wheels.

My plan is to raise it a bit and install a 2018 Tahoe L83 (5.3L) and 6 speed in it. I found one on EBay with 3 miles on it from a train derailment.

I purchased the following off that totaled truck: engine, trans, ecm, wiring harness, radiator, fans, induction, fuel pump and controller, under hood fuse block, wiring harnesses, exhaust and evaporation system.

It should run like a 2018 Tahoe.
