Up for auction here is my 1972 GMC Jimmy in beautifully frame-off resto modcondition.It is NOT a Blazer converted to a Jimmy it is an original GMCJimmy.I am a professional mechanic specializingin high performance modern builds and classic restorations.This truck has been my personal daily driver for the past couple years.Between the previous owner and myself there have beentens ofthousands of dollars put into this truck in parts & labor.

Anti corrosion coating on axles frame radiatorcore support ( Many people use Por 15 but it looks terrible to me. I went instead with a more labor intensemulti stage system for the glossy look you see in the pics and tough as nails protection)
Axlesframe steering column refinished ingloss blackurethane
Bedliner interior for easy cleaning or can have a carpet kit installed (kit usually runs around $300) bedliner also serves as a sound deadening material.

Paint is Gloss Black single stagefor a DEEP shiny black that only single stage can produce!
Thereare so many parts and countless hours of fabrication bodywork mechanical work and so on that it would take far too long to list. I spent a few hundred dollars on nuts bolts and fasteners alone! The build is nearly 100% complete for me. What is left is basically personal options in my opinion. As for the paint it is beautiful but not perfect yet you have to be right up on the truck to see any of the small imperfections. The truck is an original A/C truck but I have not bothered to restore the system although the heater works great. Personally I never had a need for A/C being that I always drove the truck topless. Anew A/C system runs around $1200 or you can purchase the missing parts and finish the existing stock system. Suffice it to saythis build isvery clean very costly and it is highly unlikelythat you'llsee another frame off like it on ebay for a long time.Actual frame off Blazers/Jimmys are EXTREMELY rare most just say"fully restored" orsomething obscurelike that. Of course that is not atall comparable to a frame-off restoration.The last Blazer/Jimmy that was comparable sold through Mecum Auctions for $40000last year and wasn't as clean as this one.I know I have just given a brief description here so if you would like more information please feel free to contact me Dave at 775-338-3300. At this price I cannot include anything more than what is listed however if you want something done like the seats refinished carpet installedA/C or fuel injection installed please contact me for pricing and more details!
The truck is for sale both locally and nationally and therefore I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. The description is for informational purposes and does not replace personal inspections. The truck is sold as-is and no concessions will be made at time of pick up ordelivery so pleaseperform your due diligence prior to bidding.
