I would agree, 15" rallye rims would look better, but then it's not my truck[cheers]

Okay so is mike the owner of this rig?? As I said I think I know the builder of this truck. His name was Mike and he used to live in Maple Ridge....on 252nd st. Him and another guy shared a property with 2 houses and a big shop where they used to resto 67-72 trucks. I seen some cherry trucks roll out of that shop.

Sweet shop! And like the Blazer too. :D

I have a chance to buy a project '72, been putting it off for a while now but every time I see one finished I think I should just go pick it up. Most of the bodywork is done and no motor so if the price is right I'm going to grab it. Got a 454 sitting in my shop that's waiting a rebuild for the right truck. :D

Are the front sway bar frame brackets a kit or custom fabbed. Sway bars never came on the pre 73 gm 4X4 s.

They never came with front or rear sway bars. I have never had the need for one on any of my 72's, but you never know, the day may come that I would want one.
