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
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
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
applique 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
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.
