Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
This Blazer was restored by a shop called Classic Ford Broncos in Columbus, Ohio, and comes with a host of upgrades to make it livable for daily-driving. Along with the bigger, fuel-injected engine, it's equipped with a Vintage Air A/C system, new upholstery, and an upgraded stereo system with a modern Pioneer head unit. Power is sent to all four wheels via a four-speed manual transmission and shiftable transfer case.
From the outside, the car looks fantastic, with deep black paint and a perfectly matched set of chrome wheels. The chrome grille and bumpers look to be in great condition too, as does the roof panel. Underbody shots show a red-painted floorpan and no signs of rust. Inside, the dash and gauge clusters look to be in good, working condition. The two-spoke steering wheel and chrome glove box cover stand out nicely. The two back seats are finished in the same white upholstery as the front, flanked on either side by a set of subwoofers.
Of course, all of this restoration craftsmanship comes at a price. The seller has this Blazer . That's a lot of money, yes, but considering how much Bronco restorations go for, it seems pretty reasonable.
