1991 GMC Jimmy
Let me start out by letting you know I am not a dealer. Not one of the guys on here who buys these K5's off craigslist, tries to hide all the blems and then puts it on ebay with "worldwide auction" blah blah blah. I am the third owner.
I wanted a really nice blazer for the back country as I had a couple back in the day when they were new. The one I have here is simply too nice to go scratch up and use in the back country. It even had original shocks on it when I got it. It is truly a survivor that is in better shape than most restored blazers of this vintage. I am an originality buff so everything I have done has been with GMC dealer parts counter parts, no Chinese crap from the local auto parts store. Having owned several of these I know what happens around the 100,000 mile mark so I done some serious preventative maintenance 10,000 miles early;
-new belt, new battery, new ignition control module, new map sensor, new o2 sensor, new cap, new rotor, new plug, new wires, new radiator cap.
-Big ticket items is new ring and pinion in rear end with Timken bearings and seals throughout and Richmond gears.
-Red Head steering box.
-Changed out auto hubs for warn and did complete new Timken bearings and seals in front.
-The steering joints and ball joints are all original and tight.
-New oem size 31x10.5.x15 BFG at ta's on original rims with original center caps.
-The only thing modified from original is the exhaust as the previous owner put an exhaust system that didn't sound factory. So I took an original brochure to a custom exhaust shop so they would get the style right and had them put on a Magnaflow muffler and resonator to bring back the factory quiet sound and look. The new exhaust patterned exactly off of original including using all original brackets and routing complete with back cut tailpipe.
-Everything works as it should
-Seats, carpet pretty much everything is in excellent condition.
-No oxidizing on dash or door panels.
-Original dash is not cracked.
-There are some small door dings at the edge of driver and passenger door. They are not big enough to show up in photos, part of being a survivor.
-There is a rub type small ding next to tailgate handle once again not really able to see it in a picture as it is too small.
-Yes that shinny paint is original and not peeling and the clear coat is not pealing either.
-The only reason the paint is so nice is because it had full length running boards, bug deflector and rear mudflaps that went almost to the ground and it was always garaged in a non salt state. I removed all of the running boards and mudflaps. There were 4 -5/16 bolt holes in pinch weld under the door on each side that the running boards were mounted to. Drove me nuts so had them filled in and the pinch weld only was painted to match to cover the newly patched holes.
In other words I do not know if there is a nicer restored let alone survivor kimmy or blazer such as this out there with all original or oem parts, beautiful original paint and already preventative maintained so you can get in and drive with zero worries and zero apologies from me.
Any questions or if you want to have somebody look at or drive it then let me know. Almost impossible to find one nicer.
