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

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 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.
