VZ, nice score !  I think we all dream of finding the unmolested '73-'75 Blazer/Jimmy, and now you're livin' the dream for us!  You made reference to the body work.  The floor looked pretty decent.  Are the bedsides and other exterior panels in similar condition or rust in the typical locations?  I think I am one or two more flips away from beginning to look for a '73-'75 project of my own.  Your photos just added fuel to the fire!  Keep us posted!

There's one spot in the passenger rear near the tailgate that's blown out. The tailpan is shot, the exterior rear quarters are toast. The floor supports are toast, body mounts are shot, some front floor areas are crisp and blown out. The door bottoms are shot, the fenders are shot, the front valance is toast and the front fenders are done. I'll post more pix once I start the repairs.

Geeez! Everything is either toast or shot!! How’s the ash tray?
Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.  Zechariah 14:1
