This Blazer is hot!
Today's philosophical conundrum: Did the popularity of early SUVs lay the groundwork for the proliferation of modern SUVs, or did the popularity of modern SUVs make classics like this 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer more popular? It's a chicken/egg scenario for sure, but either way, classic SUVs like the Ford Bronco and Chevy Blazer are red hot in the collector car market right now.
The first generation of K5 Blazers shared their styling with the beloved "Action Line" pickups of 1967-1972. Unlike later Blazers, these first-generation K5 Blazers were all full convertibles. Partway into the second generation, the Blazer would switch to a "half-cab" design with a removable cap over the rear seats. it was certainly safer and more watertight, but a whole lot less fun.
Powered by a 350 cubic inch V8 engine engine, which is backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission, this 1972 Chevy Blazer was the subject of a frame-off restoration. During the restoration, it also received some upgrades like an Edelbrock intake and carb, HEI distributor, and aftermarket stereo and speakers. It gets stopping power from front disc brakes. Finished in a Medium Olive Green base coat, with clear coat PPG paint, see more of this 1972 Chevy Blazer here.
