This 1988 Chevrolet Blazer K5 4x4 is a loaded Silverado-level SUV
that comes from the era of fuel injection and overdrive. And good
investments over the years mean this remains the ideal mix of
vintage fun and an everyday useful vehicle.
This SUV gives an impression of a machine that has been treated
with respect throughout its whole life. The body panels remain
straight, the fit is excellent, and the glass is clean/clear. And
since this is an upper-level Silverado you get the desirable piece,
like the chrome bumpers, hood ornament, and full-length trim. It's
part of a premium style that fits well with the white paint. It was
an upgrade that happened around 2007, and it continues to have a
quality gloss today. The color-matched hardtop is a nice detail to
go with the premium presentation. There are more useful upgrades,
like the side steps, a tall stance from newer off-road tires, and
there's a proper trailer hitch on the rear. All of this reminds you
that a Blazer like this is perfect for everything from the boat
ramp to sitting on the tailgate at ballgames.
The gray and dark interior has a tasteful look, and the condition
reminds you how much this has been a well-respected classic. It's
loaded with all the best features, including power windows, power
locks, cruise control, a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing
R134a air conditioning. This is built to be long-haul comfortable
for the driver, and so you have a high-back bucket seat, center
console, a tilt steering column, and a wraparound gauge panel. The
rear seats have adult-sized legroom, and there's plenty of room for
cargo behind the rear seat.
Under the hood is Chevy's 5.7-liter V8. It has a high stock and
well-preserved presentation. That's a good thing because this later
generation also comes with fuel injection. The motor was given a
tune-up about 8k miles ago to keep it running strong. The
transmission was rebuilt around the same time. It's a four-speed
automatic unit that shifts smoothly all the way into the highway
overdrive. There's also power steering, power brakes, and front
discs. And the two-speed 4x4 transfer case and Back Country
All-Terrain tires (newer with only 1300 miles) mean this one knows
how to keep going when the pavement ends.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. When you want a
full-size classic SUV that's respected, capable, and premium, you
know to look no further. Call now!
