1994 Chevrolet S10 Blazer
A custom build takes from the mind of its creator and shapes metal into various forms to create a one of a kind, unique vehicle. All builds get their inspiration from somewhere, be it movies, earlier company builds, or designs of the times you are attempting to replicate specific to an era. Final result will yield a one-off build that is truly unique and reflects the personality of the builder
For consignment, a Chevrolet S-10 Blazer in name and frame only, as now it looks more like a smaller version of a blue oval company '40 Deluxe Coupe. Only 10,000 miles since the drivetrain was rebuilt and it runs and drives great. A padded and insulated removable top, some new finishes for the dash and interior, a blueprinted and balanced V-6, and a rebuilt transmission, it's poised to go and show and I guarantee you will be the only person in town with one of these.
Upfront the Ford accoutrements from 1940 are prevalent, with the teardrop headlights and tall horizontal chrome ribbed grille that melts into a bulbous hood. Additional molded in circular vents flank the old-style grille and allow for more air to enter the engine bay. On the bottom is a red pinstriped curved bumper nice and shiny. Side fenders complete the front curve, house the headlights, and work their way upward and back to an eventual melt into the side of the car where the doors begin. Here we see a small cove then back to more flaring on the rear quarter, but not as much as the front, and a curved rear trunk deck. More teardrop taillights, dual round backup lights with Fresnel lenses and another pinstriped shiny bumper. On top is a canvas top, however it does not lower, it just is insulated and appears as a convertible top. The top is removable like a Bronco or Blazer from the old days, just need a few bolts removed. 15-inch American Racing wheels are all around and up front are wrapped with 205/70R15's and on back 275/60R15's. I guess we could say it's all over but the cryin' with all these tears.
The original S-10 dash configuration has been retained, but with some customization. Here we see some wood panels lacquered and a semicircular speedometer, and other inserts. A newer center panel has been fashioned on the dash front now with a Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio and a rear window defogger toggle. For the passenger, a wood appliqu to the glove box door, and more wood surrounding the air vent. Door panels pick up the use of this wood as well and now have power windows, power locks, and a mixture of striped broadcloth and molded plastic with just a hint of lower carpet, all in gray tones. An American flag sticker is also applied and appears to be flapping in the breeze. Broadcloth buckets with more of the striped inserts and the bolsters present in shiny charcoal vinyl. A center console runs from the rear of the compartment, where custom fiberglass molded inserts replace the back seat, and a box for the sterol sound is now present. Above is a red painted roll bar just in case you go a bit too far on the performance front and put the topside down you are covered... Light gray carpet floods the floors with rubber mats. A nice wood rimmed rally steering wheel is fronting the dash. God bless 'Merica!
With a tug forward of the front hinged hood, we see a 4.3Liter V-6 with EFI and a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission on back, both have been rebuilt. A 10-bolt rear axle pushes power to the rear wheels.
Nice and clean with a totally rust free, structurally sound frame, and nearly perfect no dirt floorpans. Inside of rockers and side panels are all buttoned up. Power disc brakes for the front end, and power drum brakes for the back end.
It fired right up, and I shoehorned myself inside where it was off to the test track. It felt like I was in an S-10 on the inside but outside it was looking a lot like the '40 Ford Deluxe. Smooth acceleration, tight steering, and straight bias free braking. All functions were working at the time of the test drive.
A one of a kind, one off original award-winning custom build with some interesting features, nice interior, and the look of a bygone era. All bathed in red, with nice chrome, American Racing wheels, and I have no idea what the builder was thinking, but it all comes together to spell U N I Q U E.
