Chevrolet Blazer Orange Crush
About my car
My fiancé purchased this 1985 s10 blazer for me in October 2015. She knew I always regretted selling my first car which was a 1987 s10 blazer. There wasn't much to work with in the beginning so she asked me if I could build it anyway I wanted what would I do.
I started giving her a few ideas and next thing you know together we came up with building it like an original 1950's truck/suburban. Together we started tearing apart the truck inside and out. We sanded it down and primed and painted in our garage at our house. Next we started looking for an original dash, steering column and steering wheel, front bumper, tail lights, grille etc. As we were able to find parts no matter the drive 30 mins to 6 hrs away we started collecting parts. We were able to mimic the split window look and made the mirrors and spot lights flow as well as the amazing windshield visor. We decided to go with a vintage crushed velvet for the headliner and visors which my fiancé was nice enough to upholster for me.
We are currently working on doing a complete raised floor with a white pine wood floor in the back, we are currently looking for a 1947-1953 gmc four row grille for a fair price considering the modifications that will need to be done. Finishing the paint and metal work. As well as ordering custom fit OEM artillery wheels with 3 inch white wall tires. We are hoping it will be ready for next car show season. We started this build to show people that with the right motivation and drive you can create and build anything even from your own garage.This has definitely brought our family closer and has been the most amazing thing we have done.
