This first-generation K5 Blazer has plenty of potential.

When it comes to large, iconic and rugged trucks from the 1970s, the Chevrolet’s K5 Blazer is one of the first vehicles that come to mind. With distinctive styling and a long list of capabilities, it is a well-established favorite in the hearts of both collectors and enthusiasts. This 1972 Chevrolet Blazer is a running and driving example that is ready for its next set of adventures.

The exterior of this Blazer sports a bright Orange paint color with an unrestored appearance. It also features chrome bumpers in the front and rear, a white-colored hard top, and camper mirrors. On an important note, Restore A Muscle Car LLC plans to powdercoat the wheels that are currently on the vehicle, and the wheels will also receive brand new tires upon their refinish.

While there are no photos of the interior or engine, the ad mentions that this vehicle has a saddle brown vinyl upholstery theme with front bucket seats. It also has options for a rear seat, gauge package, tinted windows, and an AM/FM radio. The 5-digit odometer shows 77,683 miles on this Blazer.

This example uses a 350 cu.-in. V8 engine, which is the largest possible engine that the 1st-generation K5 left the factory with. It pairs to a column-shifted 4-speed manual transmission. As stated before, this is a running and driving Blazer, and it also includes features such as power steering and locking front hubs.

Restore A Muscle Car LLC is asking $17,900 for this Blazer. What direction would you go with this K5? Would you restore it, or would you clean it up as is to use as an off-road rig?
