Vehicle Original VIN : CKL186F166744
This 1976 Chevrolet K5 Blazer has been restored with a stroker V8 and beefy suspension components. But you can also see this has a sleekness that looks good rolling through town, too. So as you dig into the full package, you’re going to discover a 4×4 with the right investment in power, size, and details to make for a vintage 4×4 that’s both capable and cool. The tall stance, Mickey Thompson Baja wheels, tow hitch, and steel bumper with integrated Warn winch tell you this Blazer can blaze its own trails… and look good doing it. Rosedale Red is the factory color, and this one has the kind of shine that gives this classic hue plenty of modern appeal. In fact, we’re told this Blazer was given a full frame-off restoration about 10 years ago. The investment is said to include new body components, like the floor pans, rockers, door shells, and tailgate. The aim of that work was to create quite a capable machine. So this one isn’t one of those concours 4×4. It has seen some action, because after all, your plans don’t include the pavement either. But the gloss of the finish and the fit of the well-creased body panels tell the story of proper respect. We love this generation Blazer because you can still remove the hardtop for a convertible-like experience. And the red interior continues a similar rugged yet stylish theme we see on the exterior. The front seats are finished in a comfy red velour, so you don’t have to worry about hopping in on sunny days when you’re wearing shorts. And the rear bench is durable vinyl that can be out in the elements. The full liner paint floor is another durable feature when this one is open to the world. The clean dash, center console, bright gauge panel, updated steering wheel, and tilt column are all part of good investments that make this one especially nice from the driver’s seat. Under the hood is what makes this Blazer so great. The motor is a professionally-built 383 cubic-inch stroker V8. It includes upgrades like a JET Streetmaster enhanced 750 Quadrajet carb, an Edelbrock intake, Stage 8 fasteners, and Dynatech ceramic-coated headers. This enhanced V8 feeds a rebuilt three-speed automatic transmission, and the transfer case feeds new driveshafts. The axles are built for good low-end power to get you moving from a standstill, even in the muck. The front diff is a PowerTrax Lock Right locker, the rear is an Eaton limited-slip unit, and they both are running 4.56 gears. There’s also a Rough Country 4″ lift, Off-Road Design 1″ Zero Rate springs, Warn front locking hubs, and Bilstein shocks. It’s a total package that delivers added power and 4×4 prowess. But even if you just feel like taking up a grassy spot at cars & coffee, this Blazer has power steering, steering stabilizers, power brakes, and front discs to make getting through town easier. The right investments to lead the charge up a hill. But the way it looks also means it doesn’t even have to leave your driveway to gain admiration. Call today!
