Since it looks like we're still in for a bit of a wait until Chevy fully unveils the new Blazer, I figured I'd start a thread where we could share pictures of some of our favourite models. Here's a pristine 1976 Blazer Cheyenne that's all original. It has a rebuilt transmission and only 130k miles. Asking price is a bit steep ($20k) but that's to be expected from a truck in this condition. Its being advertised as "unmolested" lol.

Im also a pretty big fan of the classic models, and I came across this mint 1972. It may keep the original looks, but its got all new components lurking underneath. They include:

Engine: Chevy 350 stroked to 383 with flattop pistons, Edelbrock heads, Roller cam, and so on.
Transmission: GM 4L60E
Transfer Case: Twin-sticked NP205
Front Axle: Factory Dana 44 with 3.73:1 gears and an ARB Air Locker, G2 locking hubs
Rear Axle: Factory GM 12-bolt with 3.73:1 gears and an ARB Air Locker
Springs & Such: Hodgepodge of springs from Pro Comp and 4Wheel Parts with leaves added and removed to yield about 2 inches of lift over stock, and Pro Comp shocks
Tires & Wheels: 33x10.5R15 BFGoodrich KM2s on 15x8 Wheelsmith wheels
Steering: Crossover steering conversion
Other: Period-correct Pro Comp driving lights, custom tow points piercing factory bumpers, hidden Smittybilt XRC 10 winch, custom 40-gallon tank, modified factory tire carrier, color-matched bedliner sprayed interior, Vintage Air A/C, soft top from Softtopper

You know it's a well loved Bronco deigned to handle whatever you can throw at it when the owner lists the suspension as a "hodgepodge of springs". May not be fully stock, but someone out there will appreciate a well loved classic.

Value of these will sky rocket much like others from its era just for being the purest form of an SUV. Its one advantage that classic American SUV's have over non-American makers.

I do think there is going to be an influx of interest in older generation models, if Chevy has gone too overboard with modernizing the design. Even though most of the spy shots are heavily camouflaged, its pretty obvious how many styling cues it seems to borrow from the Traverse.

Well it looks like your early predictions we're true, as the the newly redesigned Blazer, couldn't be further away from the design language of its predecessors. Though it looks like its borrowed far more styling cues from the Camaro than anyone was anticipating.

I always liked the Bronco spec OJ had which doesn't get any better. Few colors scheme's represent that era well and white was one of them:

I really hate the association between the Blazer and OJ, but I do like the looks of that generation. I wonder if Ford is going to go the same route with the Bronco, and completely modernize the look.
