Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

Behold this perfectly restored 1979 Chevy K5 Blazer. Back when trucks were still manly and made entirely out of steel, this K5 Blazer is a mini tank, and a beautiful one at that. Originally from California, this complete body off frame restoration is the closest thing you’ll find to factory new right off the showroom floor (minus the sleazy car salesman!) This Blazer has been rebuild using 100% genuine GM parts.

This second generation Blazer, also known as the Jimmy, had an absurdly long production run of 18 years (1973-1991). During that time, the K5 Blazer was offered in a number of variations, including military applications, and is slowly becoming a pop culture icon of its era. We joked earlier about its all-steel construction, but it’s this feature which lends to the K5’s durability and utilitarian quality.

This particular K5 features GM’s 350 cu in V8 and 4-Speed automatic with 4WD and low range gearing. Mechanically, this blazer is overall excellent. Our inspection report noted some very minor axle “play” and the passenger door does require a strong arm to close it properly. Beyond these minor issues, this K5 is excellent.

Likewise for the paint and interior, everything looks factory new. We did note a small paint imperfection on the driver’s side door, but its not very noticeable at all. Other than that, this K5 looks great from afar and up close!

This K5 Blazer is built unlike any truck on the market today, eliciting a sense of nostalgia modern vehicles just don’t offer. And in this condition, this particular K5 is perfect for anyone looking to drive a piece of automotive history, or add to their collection.

This vehicle may be viewed in our Phoenix Showroom. For more information, please contact Daniel at +1.917.890.4239 or at daniel@classicpromenade.com

Interesting Fact: The Chevy K5 Blazer was produced from 1969 to 1994 by General Motors and is a full-size sport-utility vehicle. Until 1975, the K5 Blazer had a removable top that would turn the vehicle into a fully functioning convertible.   Originally, the K5 Blazer started out as a truck that only offered four-wheel drive. A 250 V6, 292 straight 6, 207 V8, or 350 V8 were the only engine options available at the time. When the second generation came out, Chevy moved away from the truck design slightly and replaced the removable top with a half-cab design instead.   There were rumors of liability issues with the second generation of the K5 Blazer that had to do with the weight of large glass panels used, but nothing every came of it. As the model continued to develop, it eventually became more similar to an SUV than a truck. The model was renamed to the Chevy Yukon from 1992 until the end of production in 1994, when it was replaced by the Chevy Tahoe. This vehicle is still popular out on the road due to its reliability and boxy frame, which make it a perfect car for many families!
