This 1985 Chevrolet Blazer K5 has V8 power, an overdrive
transmission, an A/C interior, and a great color combo. So that
makes for a nice package when looking for one of the coolest
vintage 4x4 hardtop convertibles around.
The two-tone on this one makes it an instant standout. After all,
these K5 Blazers have an all-American attitude, and this red and
white combo seems to bring it out with all the appeal of a
Coca-Cola bottle. There are nice brightwork pieces like the
bumpers, newer grille, and Silverado full-length trim that add to
the classic look. But the best details might just be how the white
roof section in front coordinates nicely with the removable
fiberglass rear roof section. It gives this one a nice look of
completeness with the top on or off. There was an update later in
life to keep this looking glossy, but it's also not so refined that
you'll feel nervous about taking this 4x4 on anything more than a
manicured lawn. After all, there's still plenty of function in a
classic like this. That's why you have a tall stance, luggage rack,
and a proper tow hitch.
Inside is more of the tasteful red. The hardtop has not been off in
at least a decade, and you can see the quality by the good seals
and even the dome light still works. But if you do open this one up
to the world, it's nice to see the rear seat one in durable vinyl.
The front buckets not only have high-back comfort and comfy velour
but also there's a cup holder center console in-between. This was
built in the era where Chevy loaded some of its pickups and SUVs
with the best features. So you have cruise control, power windows,
power locks, and a tilt steering column on the driver-oriented
dash. And you'll find the right upgrades, like an AM/FM/CD stereo
with aux input, and the factory air conditioning has even been
converted to R134a refrigerant.
Under the hood is a 305 cubic-inch V8. Topped with a four-barrel
carburetor, this is believed to be original to the Blazer. It has
the clean look of a well-respected setup, and the way it fires up
and runs with gusto reaffirms its strong status. In fact, this one
is all about fitting into any/every day. The four-speed automatic
transmission has overdrive for easy highway cruising, and the
two-speed 4x4 transfer case is nice for when the pavement ends.
Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are great for
all trips near or far.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the distinct two-tone K5
Blazer that's already done just the way you want it. So don't miss
this deal. Call now!
