This 1970 K5 Blazer custom convertible is the product of over 1,200
hours invested in a complete frame-off build. It is powered by a
new GM LS7 427/505hp engine, mated to a GM Connect-and-Cruise 4L75E
automatic overdrive transmission, with the original NP205 transfer
case. The engine is covered by a two-year, 50,000-mile warranty.
The body was stripped, top to bottom. All metalwork was completed
and epoxy-primed. U-Pol Raptor protective coating was applied to
the floor and underside for chip and sound control. Dynamat
installation on the inside floor provides additional sound and heat
control. The body is finished with AXALTA urethane paint. The
frame, radiator support, inner fenders and axles are finished with
a powder coat. The engine is cooled by a DeWitt aluminum radiator.
The fuel tank is stainless steel from Rick's Hot Rods, and includes
a new original GM ZL1 fuel pump. The vehicle was upgraded with NOS
front and rear axles from GM, featuring disc brakes on the front
axle and GM posi-traction in the rear axle. It rides on a 4-inch
lift kit, complete with Fox shocks and all-new leaf springs. The
315/70/17-inch Goodyear tires mounted on Mickey Thompson wheels
connect the power to the ground. Upgrades include a powder-coated
custom steel rollbar, with shoulder-harness seat belts, and a
custom convertible top by SofTopper for an all-season ride. The
interior includes all-new upholstery, carpet and weatherstripping.
The comfort is handled by a Vintage Air climate control system. The
dashboard includes a Dakota Digital RTX instrument cluster and a
reproduction AM/FM stereo. For comfort, this ride includes an
Ididit tilt steering column and a repositioned driver's seat,
providing an additional 2 inches of legroom. Less than 300 actual
miles since completion in November 2021.
