I’m selling my beautiful and rare Safari Edition, Chevy Cheyenne Blazer. It is a full-convertible (1969-1975 were the only years of the full-convertible). It is also an unmolested survivor with all the original parts (besides spark plugs, battery, wheels). 67K factory original miles!!!
The Safari Edition Blazer edition was a small niche market that was targeted for the surfer demographic and only produced in 1975, which was also the final year of the full convertible Blazer (comparable to the Free Wheelin Fords in the late 70’s or the Feather Blazers). This was a factory option available in California. I will include the documentation that came with this special optioned Blazer.
I bought this Blazer in California over 15 years ago (and flew in to see it before I purchased it). This is the last year of the full convertible Blazer and is highly sought after.
This Blazer is rust free (it never had any rust or body work), the engine fires up on the first turn, no blue smoke, drives straight (no pull), all the gauges work, no electrical issues, all lights work, windshield wipers work, all windows roll up and down smooth, the fiberglass top is in immaculate condition, the interior is in amazing condition 9.9 out of 10. It even has the original foam around the factory original roll bar!!!
The paint is ORIGINAL (I was told that the very bottom panels were repainted, but you can’t tell…I just wanted to fully disclose). It has an immaculate undercarriage.
My Blazer has the original running panels (very rare), working A-track player/AM/FM radio, working CB radio, no cracks in the dash, no cracks in the windshield, AC blows cold, the 4X4 engages, all the factory lines/chrome are straight, the doors hang correctly (no sag) and the transmission shifts smoothly.
The Blazer has a clean/clear title in my name and needs absolutely no work.
The Blazer has been stored in a climate-controlled garage every day since I owned it. It has never seen a drop of rain. I only detail it twice a year with DRI Wash. It is my favorite of all the vehicles I have ever owned.
I can’t fully articulate how immaculate this Blazer is. I drive it less than 70 miles a year to keep the fluids moving during the summer (I start it for 15 minutes every 2 weeks during the winter).
Please take the time to review the high definition pictures and ask for any additional you may need.
The Blazer is sold as is and I highly suggest you fly in to Des Moines to see it in person. If you are flying in, please schedule a time with me so I have an opportunity to plan.
I will not accept anything besides a wire transfer or cash in person.
I encourage you to do your market research and see what other Blazers are being sold for. Similar year Blazers are going for $65K now and none of them are as rare, have lower miles and are not original. I personally won’t buy a vehicle if it doesn’t have the original, numbers matching engine, the original interior, the original radio and original parts.
This may be the only Chevy Safari Edition in existence (I have seen two “Feathers” for sale in the last 15 years). I have never seen another Safari edition besides on a brochure.
I have seen the new 2020 Bronco and Blazer, they will only fuel the desire for the original, square body, full convertible SUVs. It will follow the historical, upward pricing.
Here is your opportunity. Please let me know if you have any questions or need any additional pictures. My number is 515-661-7277 ask for Mike.
I am also selling it locally. Don’t let this rare vehicle slip away.
