Vehicle Description

This 1972 K5 Blazer Resto-Mod is the product of a frame-off rotisserie restoration with every nut and bolt replaced. It has a custom engine bay that features hundreds of hours of custom sheet metal work. Everything is bead-rolled, stamped, slip-rolled, and hand-formed to create a modern engine bay with panels that cover the entire firewall, hood and engine. Powering this Blazer is a Whipple-supercharged 350ci 8-cylinder engine paired with a 4L80E automatic transmission and 205 transfer case. A separate intercooler and recovery tank were built out of aluminum and TIG-welded for the Whipple supercharger cooling system. The frame and body were both taken down to bare metal, with the frame getting epoxy primed followed by a single-stage PPG paint designed for extreme chip resistance. The body was epoxy-primed, the body worked and refinished in water-based PPG and the whole underside has a chip guard coat sprayed and finished in a gloss clear. Dual FOX shocks were installed in the front with a FOX reservoir shock used in the steering stabilizer and single FOX shocks in the rear. The axle housings were painted the same as the frame. The Blazer is equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes, new 3:73 gears, axles and hubs, 4-inch lift, and 35-inch tires on 17-inch Black Rhino wheels. The wheel wells were opened to fit a bigger tire and even out the wheelbase look, then molded back into the factory body lines. On the inside, it sports a black leather interior with a black and white houndstooth pattern, custom-made door panels and inner bed panels, and the rear interior wheel wells are wrapped in leather with a dual stitch pattern. It also features interior dome lights installed under the rearview mirror and in the rear interior bed panels triggered by door actuators. Rounding out the look of this K5 are billet hood hinges, chrome billet grille, chrome front and rear bumpers with the rear backup camera installed into the rear bumper. ** PREVIEW
