Two months after his near-fatal crash, the comedian is driving again.
Mud-bogging ’69 Camaro/K5 Blazer may be the off-roader of your dreams
The Camaro is currently in the process of being painted and looks like a stalled project that the seller has given up on, which on the bright side means that now is a good time to take a look at the body before all the sins are covered up and hidden away. It’s powered by a Chevy 350 V-8, naturally, and has a three-speed auto—likely a Turbo 350, but the eBay ad didn’t specify.
It also didn’t specify what axles are under the Blazer frame that’s bolted to the Camaro’s body. We’d guess it’s either Dana 44s or a Corporate 10-bolt that’s churning those Super Swamper tires through the slop. The wheel openings on the Camaro have been opened up a bit, but considering that the K5 Blazer’s wheelbase is only about an inch and a half shorter than the Camaro’s factory 108 measurement, once the larger tires were installed it sort of looks, well, like it was meant to be.
The interior of the Camaro is stripped and aluminum panels replace the door skins, while a bolt-in cage has not yet been totally installed. In short, there’s a lot of work to be done to make this project ready for prime-time mud-bogging, but as far as truck/car hybrids go, this… trar has potential. Even better—it should still be up for grabs, as nobody opted for the buy-it-now price of $12,800.
