Vehicle has 43,500 original miles of which only 3,000 miles are on the current build.

Did 491 HP on dyno with mild starter tune NA.

Couple small issues.

1) Is throwing a primary coil #3 code and I do not have time to mess with it. I have swapped coils and its not that ran new wire to the coil with no success but have not went as far as to run wire to new pin on ECM.
2) Fuel pressure gauge/sender not working on the pillar gauge.
3) This vehicle from new cant sit weeks without being on battery tender. I don't know why but I keep it on tender as its a garage queen. If I drive it, then its fine.

Price is $24,000. I spent that much on mods in recent build. Comes with EFI live for tuning. Truck is setup for nitrous but has not been sprayed yet.

Build thread is here. Rich's build/resto thread

There are a hundred guys on this forum that will vouch for the quality of this truck. I have hundreds of pictures dating back to 2007 including the Texas speed invoice for current build and a PARTIAL spreadsheet showing over $25k in parts.

This is the original SS Shootout truck.

No trades, buyer provides transportation. No warranty.

Located in Des Moines, Iowa

He has helped countless TBSS owners over the years on here and through his ss-shootout website. I referred many posters to it. No doubt he knows his stuff. I would have no qualms buying this truck.

First and Foremost, I want to personally Thank Rich.

I have been in the SS Trailblazer world since 2012 and a part of this forum since 2014. I have spoke to Rich countless times, dating back to my first SS, that had 255,000 miles on it when I sold it- but the frame looked like it had 55,000.... I remember telling Rich that one day, one day I wanted a SS just as clean as his. The level of his Attention to Detail is not easily reached, so it's an honor that his SS will be coming home to me in July.

Why July? Well, unfortunately, I'll be heading to Fort Sill, Oklahoma for several months for some good ol' fashion Army Proto-Type Training. Rich is working with, and keeping our baby safe, until my training is over, and I can come get it.

I am extremely excited and grateful at the same time. Cheer's ya'll and Happy Hump's Day!!
