For Sale: 1973 Chevrolet Blazer in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1973 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Cheyenne 4x4 represents a rare vintage done right. With proper V8 power, distinctive green paint, 4x4 prowess, and plenty of features wrapped around the full convertible appeal, it's the best of everything in one cool vintage package.

For many full-size Blazer fans, this is the one. 1973 was the debut of the new second-gen Blazer design, and while they would go onto have a legendary look, only the first few years gave you a full hardtop convertible like this one. So it gives this one an instant respect and demand even before you check out the total vintage package. This has the badging for the upper-level Cheyenne trim, and it's not hard to see why. The big chrome bumpers and full-length trim sweeps around on the tailgate to create a bright streak across the whole body. And the same premium trim helps to highlight the straightness of the panels. The glossy green paint was an upgrade later in life, but it retains the appearance of a classic application. We like this color because it makes this off-road Blazer look like the pine trees, and the white hardtop represents their snowy caps. So it carries the looks of a 4x4 that's both very vintage and absolutely appealing.

While we like the look of the white hardtop, you really want to take it off to show the rare and desirable full open air experience. Plus, the nice tan interior with wood-like trim looks as in-harmony with nature as the exterior paint. No matter if you choose top on or off, the feeling behind the wheel is a commanding one. You have a comfy bucket seat with a center console in-between. There's a tilt steering column and the dash wraps around you, so it's a short reach to features like the upgraded AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette. There are even provisions R134a air conditioning (likely needs a recharge) in case you feel like keeping cool with the top off.

Under the hood is Chevy's famous 350 cubic-inch V8. This is believed to be the original motor, and it even has correct details, right down to the decals. But you can also see that there has been plenty invested under the hood to keep this presentation well-maintained and looking sharp. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it fires up readily, makes proper V8 power, and gives the right rumble for the dual exhaust. A stout V8 like this is great in a go-anywhere 4x4. Especially with the two-speed transfer case, lifted stance, and BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As. But more than just an off-roader, this is also an easy cruiser thanks to a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.

The few years of this full-sized, full-convertible 4x4 will always have appeal. And when you can get a premium and turn-key example, you know this is a deal that will be going quickly. Call now!
