Autotrader Find: Crazily Modified 1983 Chevy Blazer

What you’re looking at here is a 1983 Chevy Blazer that’s undergone a few … modifications. Really, it’s just a 1983 Chevy Blazer chassis that has been extensively modified to look like a 4-door, off-road-ready Jeep, with an open-air design, a roll cage and a lot of custom work, to the point where it’s hard to tell there was ever a 1983 Chevy Blazer underneath.

But, indeed, there was, and you can see that when you look at the interior — or, what’s left of the interior. There’s a custom dashboard with gauges and switches, but a few Blazer remnants remain, including the steering column, the steering wheel, the column shifter, the seats and the seat belts. Indeed, there was a Blazer underneath this thing at some point.

But there’s no Blazer under the hood. According to the ad, this off-roader has a new 400 cu in. small-block Chevy V8 that’s been barely used, with just 500 miles since it was installed. The installation — and the rest of the conversion — was performed by Tatonka Products in Salt Lake City, and apparently this particular model is called the "Runt," while a larger version is known as the Grunt, with a Hummer H1 rival dubbed the "Bummer."

If you’re into this thing — and how can you not be? — it’s offered by Stogner Auto Sales in El Paso, Texas, for $19,995. I have no idea if that’s a lot of money for a Runt or a great deal, but it’ll certainly turn more heads than just about anything at that price point.
