Thinking about selling my rig.

You guys know a bit about my rig. It still has the knock, and the interior is decent, not pretty, but decent. How much do you think I could get for it?

Well,... been thinkin' about it for a while. Then when I came across this for $2600,...well that got me thinkin' even more.
It's a gasser, and I doubt the laws would allow me to drop my 6.2 into it. But it would be good for my work. Carry more tools and look more professional.

sanded them.... seriously.. took about an hr/rim. started about 180/280/600 grit. and used a buff pad where wheel weights ate into them. then i used a mothers powerball with mothers to polish them. the last couple i used jewlers rouge on a buffer before the polish and they came up brighter. i know your supposed to go upto about 800 grit, but i didn't have any

that other one is a nice truck too

Straight, not a scratch, and the interior looked brand new.

what year is that other truck? Laws about what engine you can or can't have in your truck. I thought the US was some sort of a do as you please paradise. That sounds like the kind of stuff that happens up here (although it doesn't). Don't you have another Blazer that you're building?
I know that that truck would be worth some good money here with a body like that but in the west coast Utopia they're all pretty well rust free that I've seen. Knock in a non hot rod type engine, good body, decent interior I vote for between $13-1800

The burb is a '93 1500.
My rig aint rust free. Unless you are referring to how much I paid for the rust.
It's not falling apart or nothin'. Typical Oregon rust.
Ive heard that if you are going to change out an engine, it has to be the same year or newer. Going from a gasser to a smoker requires paperwork for the emissions c$%^#. I don't know if they require the block ID (Both of my blocks have '81 stamped into them), or if they are looking at the setup of components.

Just got back from taking a second look at the burb. 213k on the clock. A 350 is good for about 300k ???
Thanks Zed for your opinion.
Any others?

Around here you can do as you please (Oregon sounds like a real fascist state) and if you have significant modifications (Different manufacture or years of engine or chassis or body) you can get the vehicle designated as a "hot rod" and you are even exempt from emissions test. There must be a way to do as you like. You just need to look for the loopholes.
