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 and Bronco with the "luxury" features like air conditioning and automatic transmissions routinely available on pickup trucks. By 1970, the Blazer was already outselling all of its older rivals.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this stunning 1972 K-5 Blazer for your consideration. This truck features a no expense spared restoration, with an estimated cost of over $80k. The original Blazer was a two owner truck and had less than 26k original miles on it. The truck was taken down to the bare frame and everything was replaced or rebuilt. Some of the extensive mods include a new repaint in Prowler Orange with Tuxedo Black accents and unique coachlines. The body is all steel and features a custom roll bar that mounts to the frame as well as all new glass and a custom bikini top. The interior features Mastercraft seats, Corbeau seat belts, tilt steering column, Kenwood stereo, rebuilt gauges, custom console, and a nitrogen tank. The engine is a completely rebuilt 454 cid V8 with a 4 bolt main and 500 hp. It has a 11:1 compression ratio, Holley 750 carb, MSD ignition, +150hp Nitro kit, Be-Cool aluminum radiator, headers, custom 3in exhaust with ceramic FlowMaster mufflers, and an optima battery. The transmission is a Turbo 350 with a custom shift kit and it runs through a New Process 205 transfer case with all new bearings and seals. It also has a custom drive shaft and a trans cooler. Running gear is a 14 bolt GM 1-ton rear with 4.56 posi traction Moser axles, Dana 44 front, four wheel disc brakes with Wilwood hydroboost, custom 4 link suspension, Fox remote reservoir coilover shocks, dual rate springs, 14in front and 13in rear suspension travel, HD sway bars, reinforced frame, Mickey Thompson aluminum wheels and Interco SS 37in tires.
