Description:

1972 Chevrolet Blazer Cheyenne CST 4x4 Half-Cab Pickup fully restored!

My only regret is I don't know how to post an HTML ad with 100 pictures, which I have taken. Every stage of this build is documented; the truck is as close to showroom new as you could possibly find; no necessary expense spared. Beautiful, loaded, unique. Please bid to win, but only bid if you can afford to pay within 3 days of auction's end. I own a restoration shop, and this would literally have been a $100k+ build at my conservative shop rate. For reference, the darker orange color you see is the truck indoors, out of direct light. The outdoor color is the pearl showing through; it appears slightly lighter in direct light. Gorgeous.
1972 Chevrolet Blazer CST Cheyenne fully restored to as-new showroom condition in, out, and under. This is a high-end custom build to replicate the super-rare "half-cab" pickup version of the Blazer. It hit the mark in spades, and has to be one of the most beautiful and unique early Blazer's in existence. Full details as follows below:
Body, Paint, and Glass
-Complete and full disassembly including all trim, body panels, interior, electrical, glass, door mechanisms, engine, transmission, accessories, axles, suspension, etc. prior toworkcommencement.-Complete professionalbodyworkincluding stud gun and hammer-and dolly metal-finish to achieve as close to perfect fit and finish before any body filler was applied.-Body panels taken to metal, worked individually, then fitted to the body tub and massaged into one another. Panel fitment is fantastic, as good or better than new. Zero rustanywhere, ofcourse.-Door hinges and latches rebuilt and in as-new working order.-Hood hinges, striker, latch, and catch restored. The hood literally opens and closes better than new!-High end spray-in bed liner installed on the bed floor prior to bed paint.

The paint inside the bed is as nice as the rest of the truck, and the wheelhouses are fully restored as well.-Tailgate hinges, latch, and catches restored, works effortlessly.-High end three-stage contemporary take on the original Hugger Orange finish in premium RM Diamont urethane enamel... over $900.00 per gallon for the multiple base color coats, micro pearl mid-coats, and Glamour Clear final coats. This is a $20k+ paint job at my cost, and would be over $30k out the door. Gorgeous; looks like the original Hugger Orangein indirect light, and pops with gold, green, and tangerine micro pearl in the light.

You may call me directly at 360-936-9257 with any questions you may have.

While every effort has been made to describe the vehicle and associated restoration work as accurately as possible, it is in fact a 44-year-old classic truck, and therefore being sold as-is, without warranty or guarantee expressed, written, or implied.

Please be ready to make payment in full within 3 days of auction’s end via deposit into my Bank of America account, or bank wire transfer. Shipping is the full responsibility of the buyer; I own a classic car restoration shop and can recommend a reliable and affordable broker who I have used many times... ultimately the choice must be yours alone.
The truck is currently having the A/C system cleaned, charged, and certified in proper working order after having the new compressor installed; it will ship fully functional. FYI the engine bay paint and inside glove box looks lighter in the images; it's a camera/photographic anomaly.


Again, feel free to call me directly at 360-936-9257 with any questions you may have.
