1972 GMC “Baja” Jimmy (In memory of the junkman)

Recommended Posts

I built this back around 1988 the years have took its  toll on it.  I’ve lost several pieces it stayed in my mom and dad‘s house for many years before I retrieved it my Mom and Dad both smoked very heavy and it  has  bad nicotine damage to the paint and decals so I’ve decided to rebuild it. A friend of mine called the “Junkman” who came to shows in St. Louis for many years helped get the parts I needed to build it back in 1988. He long has passed away but it was always a treat to visit his house and go down to the basement and stand in all and look at those old model kits and “Junk” so this build I’m  dedicating it to him. Thanks for the  memories Charlie.

I'll be following this build. I have a pair of these kits, in the Chevy Version. I'd like to convert one to a GMC.

Love the old Jimmys & Blazers! I built the Bushwhacker as a kid. It's in terrible shape but will get rebuilt.

Looking forward to your rebuild pics!

I've got a couple of these as rebuilders myself. I'll be watching also. Can't wait to see what you do with yours.

Later-
