1985 Chevrolet Blazer M1009 CUCV D10 Military

If you are looking at this auction, chances are I don’t need to tell you what a M1009 CUCV is or how Rare it is to find a rust-free and mostly correct truck with upgrades performed in good taste.

For sale to the highest bidder: My “forever” truck. This is the truck I dreamed of owning as a child into adulthood and was finally able to purchase a worthy example about 5 years ago. Since then, I have been gathering any missing parts and performing tasteful upgrades to make this vehicle a pleasure to drive and own as part of my collection.
