The Blazer was designed and marketed to compete with International Harvester Scout and the Ford Bronco. Both of these were originally aimed at the short Jeep CJ series, which were much smaller than other trucks. The great innovation of the Blazer was to simply offer a shortened pickup truck, which both increased interior space, and lowered the cost of production with a shared platform. The Blazer quickly became popular. For the first time, it married the off-road capabilities of the Scout with the "luxury" features like air conditioning and automatic transmissions routinely available on pickup trucks. By 1970, the Blazer was already outselling both of its older rivals. Ford, Dodge, and even Jeep would counter with similar shortened pickups, with the Dodge Ramcharger and Jeep Cherokee.

The removable hardtop K5 Blazer offered here resided in the state of Wyoming up until a few months ago. This Blazer underwent a selective restoration. This rust free example was completely striped down to bare metal and properly re-sprayed it its original factory Medium Blue color. When looking at the pictures you will notice that the firewall of the truck retains the factory paint with the original chalk markings in yellow.

In June of this year the 454 engine was completely rebuilt right down to the pistons, rings, heads etc.. Bored .30 over the machining work was performed by Holland Automotive Machine out of Holland, Mi. The motor has had the proper break in procedures completed with a current oil service performed.
The flawless working Turbo 350 transmission was completely rebuilt 2 years ago.

This restoration was rounded out with a completely redone interior, new shocks, brakes, rebuilt axels and new 17 inch aluminum rims with 265 70/17 tires.

With power steering, power brakes removable hardtop this K5 is ready to go topless and cruise to the beach or your weekend car show.
