So I recently picked up a 1992 S10 Blazer up to flip. My initial thought was to sell it quickly for cheap ($1000 ish). But after fiddling with it for a bit I realized that it is actually a nice little truck. The truck has zero rust, nice paint and it runs great. If I was going to ask top dollar I would need to spend about $300 on paint and a front bumper to make it "perfect".

The question for the board is do these have a following? Its a 2WD, 2 door, manual with a 4.3 V6. It has 160k miles. If I got it close to perfect could I get $2500 or more? Am I crazy? Should I just sell it quick for $1300?

The truck is unwashed in these pictures, with a wax and a thorough cleaning it will look great.

We had a 1994 4x4 4 door. I feel if it's cleaned up its worth $2500.

Aren't all the "drop in an LS1" guys looking for this version?

Following? Yes! And with good reason. Camaro wheels, suspension goodies from the G-Bodies.

Drop in a small block and have fun. I bet you could get $2,000 depending on the region.

around here a rust free 2wd stick would bring an easy 2k. most of the square bodies in ohio are rotted.

Thats kind of what I was thinking... My car dealer friends think I am out of my mind but I thought it was a 2000- 2500 car easy.

I always wanted to make a RWD typhoon clone with a LT1 and a stick.

That's exactly like the one I just got rid of, except mine was 4x4, didn't run, full of rust, and.... Never mind, mine was opposite, and I was happy to get 400 for it :). Good luck!

I got $800 for a well running, not desireable, Oldsmobile with a wonky rear suspension. I don't think $2k for that is unreasonable. I've been thinking of a LSx swapped S-10 Blazer for CAM class and hillclimbs.

Straight clean trucks like that are getting tougher to find, a 2wd 4.3 stick is very close to unicorn. Replace the front bumper and get some center caps. It's worth it.

I've never seen a 2wd blazer in real life, it looks like it is in great shape. Nice find
