Chevy ushered in their first class of K5 Blazers the year this 1969 example came out. These vehicles are a sturdy-looking brunch with broad tracks and brawny forms. The generously sized wheel wells and substantial wheel clearance really come in handy when taking on some tough terrain. Still in thoroughly stock condition, this Blazer sports a well-maintained appearance, looking sharp in its magnetic green paint that sits under a clear coat for added luster. The bumpers all appear to be very clean and the side mirrors look fresh. The glass around the cabin is blemish-free and all of the window seals are good. The removable white hardtop that’s perched on the cabin is a great feature; its clean condition and contrasting color really grab your gaze. The hardtop easily removed to convert this Blazer K5 into an open-air, all-terrain cruiser for added enjoyment.
The cabin is also a looker with all of the components solidly in place and ready for action. The seating is comfortable; it feels nice and firm for good support on the road. The rear bench, center console, and remaining arm rests all appear to be really clean. The dashboard up front houses an array of factory gauges that function properly behind their clear lenses. The carpet is in nice condition as well. This Blazer’s substantial cabin size allows for comfortable seating for all of your passengers. There’s plenty of space separating the two rows of seating and also quite a bit of storage space on hand behind the rear bench seat.
The heart and soul of this ’69 Blazer K5 4x4 is a period-correct 307 cubic-inch V8. It’s likely the original engine and still wears its original intake, exhaust manifolds, and two-barrel carburetor. This Blazer fires right up, and runs strong and smooth as it pairs with a three-speed manual transmission that is navigated by a "3 on a tree" shifter inside the cabin. The engine compartment is clean and tidy, and surrounded by fresh hoses. What’s more, this Blazer's four-wheel-drive feature is in good working order and is easily activated by the lever mounted on the transmission tunnel. This green beauty rides on a set of 15x5.5 steel wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich Rugged All-Terrain tires. It’s equipped with both power steering and power breaks for a great ride overall.
