For Sale: 1979 Chevrolet Blazer in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1979 Chevrolet Blazer K5 Cheyenne - 4x4 - Yellow over Tan - 350 V8 (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1979 Chevrolet Blazer K5 on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the SUV due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 135 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) The K5 Chevy Blazer is the new hot classic SUV - Hagerty, January 2019 Motor Trend told the Blazer story this way: Ford had the Bronco. Jeep had the CJ. Even International Harvester-the tractor company-had the Scout. And General Motors had...nothing? Into that sport-utility vacuum, the Chevrolet K5 Blazer was born. With it, GM created a 4�-4 that was both a direct response to the existing spectrum of SUVs and yet also apart from it. The key difference was size: Unlike its would-be rivals, the Blazer was based on the automaker's successful full-size pickup truck. That cost-saving measure allowed it both to come to market quickly and to deliver greater capability than its competition. The market reaction? The Chevrolet K5 Blazer was an instant success, and it wasn't long before the vehicle dominated SUV sales. Offered here is a highly optioned, survivor 1979 Chevrolet Blazer SUV (with optional Cheyenne Trim, Code RPO Z84) in its original colors, Colonial Yellow (Code 53) over Camel Tan (Code XCC4) vinyl. The truck's odometer reads just 23,700 miles, an extremely low 564 miles per-year on average since new. The Blazer's condition is outstanding overall, a testimony to its low mileage and the fastidious care it has received from prior owners across more than four decades. The condition of the truck's exterior paint is excellent: even, smooth finish with excellent gloss across all body panels. (To best assess paint condition, be sure to view the close-up photos in the gallery.) Body panels are free of damage: no dings or dents anywhere including on the white fiberglass-reinforced plastic roof. Even the brushed-metal tailgate trim piece is free of dings. The Blazer's look is entirely original. Chrome bumpers front and rear, and Cheyenne-specific chrome body-side trim pieces are free of dents. The front, single-headlight, egg crate-style grille is similarly undamaged. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and free of cracks. All factory badging-including the gold bowtie grille emblem, K5 Blazer front-fender badges, Cheyenne rear-fender badges, and Chevrolet emblem on the tailgate's brushed-metal trim piece-is in place and very well-maintained. Factory steel wheels with chrome trim rings are mounted with SXT Radial All Terrain blackwall tires. The spare is mounted on a swing-out rear carrier. The truck's interior shows many nice touches and upgrades that were part of the optional Cheyenne trim package, the highest option-level then available. In particular, the vertically pleated Camel Tan upholstery on all seating surfaces is particularly attractive, and in this beautifully kept original condition, rare indeed. There are no rips or tears in the vinyl, and even indications of use are absent. Likewise, the textured-metal-trimmed door panels, storage pockets, and matching brown molded plastic are free of wear. Dark-brown carpeting covers the cabin floors continuing throughout the cargo area. Elsewhere, brown, molded trim pieces-including the front storage box (with cupholders) between the seats-are largely free of wear or any indication of careless use. Chrome-accented vinyl trim continues through the cargo area walls; the interior surface of the tailgate is painted in the body color and it, too, is undamaged. The Chevrolet-branded, two-spoke steering wheel frames the stock instrument cluster's brushed-metal surround on the brown-vinyl padded dash (lower portions of the dash are painted Colonial Yellow). To the right are the slide-level controls for t
