Default 1988 Blazer - Corgi Hauler II

My wife did not like how low the 1978 2WD Blazer sat. I sold the Ď78 to pay for the paint job on the 1969 Camaro project Apex. I missed my Blazer for I found this 1988 Blazer in Las Vegas. It is a clean 88k miles rust free starting point. It is loaded for 1988. 350 with a the trailer towing package. PS, PB, Air, Cruise and power windows.

I spent last summer getting everything to work. It runs and drives great.

So last summer I got everything to work and it was a great cruiser. AC blows cold, cruise worked even the 1988 cassette worked (kind of).

The winters are long and cold in MI so I blew it all apart.

LS3 with a 4L70E is going in. Mainly because the 1988 350 leaked oil.






Iím using the Holley front accessory drive, the mid mount. Makes a very clean and tidy package.

The Holley cast iron exhaust manifolds that I will connect to a 2021 Chevy High-county exhaust system I was able to buy off Facebook marketplace

Love the license plate frame, though they misspelled "Charley" lol. Of course he'll answer to nearly anything.

Great project especially for those of you that see snow.
