PostSubject: looking for a needle in a hay stack   Sat Apr 30, 2011 6:57 am

I am hoping someone on the forum knows of one that might be for sale. And no Crovo. I am NOT really looking for a needle in a hay stack. If I was I would have posted this on the Farmers Forum.Razz

I am looking for a 84-86 military issue K5 blazer, known as a M1009 CUCV. It has to run, turn and stop. Some rust is ok, but no rot boxes. Most of these have low miles for their age.

I drove one while in the navy for a few months, and I fell in love with them. I love the sound of the 6.2 diesel. I would consider a civilian version, or a 92-94 later version with the 6.5TD.
This is what I am looking for.

Hi everyone- govliquidation.com is where they auction them. The inventory changes regularly- though there seems to be few vehicles auctioned in the northeast. Pretty consistently you see these in nevada and cal. Hth-mark

Thanks Guys for all the leads. I have contacted a couple of them, including finally getting a reply from the one here in Dover. So with a little luck I will soon be driving an oil burner again. I am already talking to a co-worker who make his own biodiesel. cheers

I have owned three 6.2 powered trucks. An 84 M1009 that rotted faster than I could fix it, a 86 4x4 suburban, and a 88 C-30 crew cab from the Air force. I loved them, and the sound was awesome. Arrow

They aren't hard to find,it's just hard to find one cheap, because they are so desirable. My suggestion would be to save up and spend 4-5 and get a sweet one. Not get a pos for 1000.
Good luck.

Hey,

I might be the only other guy on here that LOVES these trucks, but dude... I think this would be a serious DOWNGRADE. If you go through with this, please don't buy a New England shitbox. Surprised

I don't think it is a downgrade. It is just something I have wanted for a long time. I had one, and let it go back in the day, and now I have a garage, I want to resto mod one. Banks sidewinder turbo kit, or td 6.5 upgrade. If you can call it that, 3-4" lift, 33" all terrains, winch behind factory bumper. And olive drab as far as the eye can see. If I could sell that stupid boat I no longer use, I would go get the blue one I posted, and keep the Impala, but not one call on it, and every inquiry into the impala seems to go cold. I may never sell it.

I'd do the K30/Dana 60 with the sidewinder kit all day, but the truck has to come from the south or the west. All the New England area square body trucks I've seen scare me lol. Too much rust.

Hey,

I might be the only other guy on here that LOVES these trucks, but dude... I think this would be a serious DOWNGRADE. If you go through with this, please don't buy a New England shitbox. Surprised
I don't think it is a downgrade. It is just something I have wanted for a long time. I had one, and let it go back in the day, and now I have a garage, I want to resto mod one. Banks sidewinder turbo kit, or td 6.5 upgrade. If you can call it that, 3-4" lift, 33" all terrains, winch behind factory bumper. And olive drab as far as the eye can see. If I could sell that stupid boat I no longer use, I would go get the blue one I posted, and keep the Impala, but not one call on it, and every inquiry into the impala seems to go cold. I may never sell it.

I'd do the K30/Dana 60 with the sidewinder kit all day, but the truck has to come from the south or the west. All the New England area square body trucks I've seen scare me lol. Too much rust.
The rust free shit is mega money. 6-10k in some cases. I will have the money from the impala to work with. I don't mind a little rust. repair panels are cheap, and easy to replace.

I'm with you. If it's what you want, get it.

It's a downgrade for sure from an SS, but only from a certain comfy sedan standpoint.

Sometimes rugged is more appealing.

I'd be interested in getting one of the diesel military C10 type trucks, myself.

I would keep the Impala, that thing has come such a long way from when you got it and it's obvious you've put extensive time into the vehicle, and as we all know time directly translates to money, on top of cash-munnay, but mostly because you already have a brand new truck...lol. You're going to sell that fruit of your labor now, in the fall when no one buys Impalas, to buy a truck that will need further work... Wink

Every one of my vehicles has or has had a minor rust issue here or there that is pissing me off in spite of it's small scale. I don't I'd ever consider a vehicle with rust on it again in the future, I'm just sick seeing it so I guess you could say it affects my opinions. I just went through about 6 aerosol Fluid Film cans on the black Tahoe's undercarriage, I have nightmares from the entire weekend plus it took to simply replace my rear bumper on that thing!

If you could find a rust free one with a junk engine, I would LOVE to see an optimizer 6500 in there. Now that has potential to be badass.

Man, I LOVE K5 Blazers. LOVE them.

But I just don't get it?

I have wanted to restomod a 84-86 military K5 forever. Now we have the place to do it, and it is on my bucket list of things to do. The Impala is awesome, but I have been around these cars, and owned them coming up on 20 years in December. While I am not bored of them, I just want to tackle other things I have wanted to do.
