used car of the day 1989 chevrolet blazer

Today we feature a 1989 Chevrolet Blazer off-road rig that needs some work but could be a fun rig to take to your local off-road park.

This one has a 350 mill under the hood, Dana 60 front axle, crossover steering, Eaton rear locker, Atlas springs, 4.5-inch lift, Fox shocks, and fiberglass quarter panels, hood, and front fenders. The grille and front lights are from a 2006 Silverado. There's a skid plate, fog lights, and a custom spare-tire mount. There's power steering, windows, and door locks. The heater works, and so does the A/C, though apparently, it doesn't get cold.

Caution flags include a "small" transmission leak, no tailgate, and no carpet, flooring, and headliner.

It's for sale in California for $9,800 and has a tick over 95K miles on the odometer.

    Why are you stealing your colleague Murilee Marlin's lunch, Tim???? THis kind of junk is typical of what HIS column peddles every damned day. DO we really need another one?

    Isn't that other dude, who has penned 46 (and counting!!!) very lengthy and verbose columns about those other UTTER LOSERS, the Lincolns, bad enough taste for you???

    TTAC has really gone to the DAWGS.

    Have they ruined it forever or can you still put K-5 body panels back on it? They put the ugliest possible trash on the poor thing.

  • SCE to AUX A question nobody asks is how Tesla sells so many EVs without charge-at-home incentives.Here are some options for you:[list][*]Tesla drivers don't charge at home; they just squat at Superchargers.[/*][*]Tesla drivers are rich, so they just pay for a $2000 charger installation with the loose change in their pocket.[/*][*]Tesla drivers don't actually drive their cars much; they plug into 110V and only manage about 32 miles/day.[/*][/list]
  • SCE to AUX "Despite the EV segment having enjoyed steady growth over the past several years, sales volumes have remained flatter through 2023."Not so. How can EV sales be increasing and flatter at the same time? and H/K/G are all up for EV sales, as are several other brands.
  • ToolGuy Here is an interesting graphic, if you're into that sort of thing.
  • ToolGuy Nice website you got there (even the glitches have glitches)
  • Namesakeone Actually, per the IIHS ratings, "Acceptable" is second best, not second worst. The ratings are "Good," "Acceptable," "Marginal" and "Poor."
