Description for GMC Jimmy 1973

OVERVIEW. Up for sale is a completely restored 1973 GMC Jimmy Blazer multi Port feel injection. The theme of this build was to keep it as original as possible with the addition of modern day technology for horsepower and reliability.

This car is truly a work of art. The pictures do not show justice whatsoever. I am not a photographer and the pictures are from my phone. I do not know how to demonstrate how beautiful this Jimmy is. My hope is that the pictures and description will show a fraction of what it is.

I have spent over a year restoring it as my full time job. I purchased the vehicle from Arizona so that the starting platform would have the least amount of rust as possible. I disassembled the truck to the bare frame so that it could be sand blasted properly. Frame axles hood hinges radiator support and seat brackets and everything else black that was Sand blasted was primer and painted with industrial tractor trailer hi quality paint so that the beauty will last for years and does not chip easy and is very durable . There were only 2 rust spots on the floor board that needed repair, which I did.with new same gauge metal and then fiberglass the floor board so it will never rust again. The entire under body is coated with high quality bed liner so that rust will never be an issue. I approached each vehicle category as if it were it’s own project. Each section will tell you which parts are still original (OEM), which parts are new with a general description.

Please call me if you need additional information. Jake (970) 529-6791.

As you can see, this car put together very professionally. There were no short cuts taken whatsoever. I have been OCD about attention to details. Seat belts have also been redone with new material still oem brackets and buckles even the GM buttons to release .I tried my best to color coordinate everything to match. This is a just completed fresh build it is not being driven and has only been test drive to make sure no leaks and everything is working properly so it does not have anything else like rock chips it is fresh and is not being driven what you see in pictures is what you will get. There was a lot of work done and a lot of new parts so I am sure I have forgot something for any questions please call. There are a lot of OEM parts from this truck that were used again as in the emblems and other things which were all cleaned somewhere hand painted back to original colors each emblem has an hour to two hours worth of work all the air conditioning and heating ducking was also for completely apart cleaned and refurbished. The 454 emblem is from the early 70's but not from this truck I added it because of the motor I thought it was a good addition. This jimmy is very beautiful the little bit that I have driven it people love to paint and say it isn't Immaculate beautiful Jimmy the color in person is beautiful pictures really do not show the beauty of it .I have taken several pictures to try to capture the beauty and picked out the ones I thought showed the best it really is a rare color it is the VIN number match 97 percent. I will consider any reasonable offer if you consider what you were getting it is a fresh build very few miles on the build the fender Wells are the original ones this jimmy was not rusted at all only two spots had to be fixed on the floor boards. I do still have the actual original taillights they were sun cracked so I could not make them look good. I am trying to add more pictures I'm having a problem with it for any additional pictures I can text them to your phone
