For Sale at Auction: 1971 Chevrolet Blazer in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This factory black 1971 K5 CST Blazer has been completely sandblasted, with metalwork and bodywork that shows the result of a concours-worthy refinish. After all this body spa treatment, it was slathered in a PPG Chevrolet Black and Ice White two-tone paint job. Hand-laid pinstriped moldings can be found on the emblems and tailgate to accent its interior. A set of 17-inch KMC Machete wheels come wrapped with 35-inch BFG All-Terrain rubber. The fiberglass top has been completely redone, gel-coated, retextured and then refinished in factory satin. The top rear hatch has been upgraded with rear gas shocks, all precision weatherstripping and new glass. The inside of the top has been trimmed for the floating star headliner with backlighting. This K5 sits on a Roadster Shop RS4 spec chassis, in gloss graphite powder coat and features Currie high pinion axles, Fox 2.5 coilover shocks with hydraulic bump stops, dual sway bars and a 4-linked front and rear suspension. The chassis is finished off with a fully polished 3-inch TIG-welded polished stainless-steel exhaust completed with MagnaFlow mufflers. Stopping power is provided by 4-wheel disc brakes that come backed by Wilwood Hydro-Boost. Powering this beast is a Whipple-charged 6.2-liter V8 LS3 engine backed by a Hughes 4L80E automatic transmission and equipped with an advanced adapter to support the NP205 transfer case. The LS3 aluminum block is refinished in Inferno Orange, featuring a 2.9-liter Whipple blower and custom DeWitt's aluminum radiator completed with stainless-steel lines and hoses. A custom air intake forces cool air into the engine, and it features vintage Chevrolet valve covers with hidden coil pack adapter plates. Keeping the quench for thirst fulfilled is a Roadster Shop fuel cell with dual Walbro fuel pumps. The body also features a hidden side marker gas filler. The interior features factory front bucket seats and a bench spanning the rear using Snowden foam covered in black leather, white stitching and "cloud" inserts. Additional features include white Classic Instruments gauges, a 15-inch original-style steering wheel, and a new tilt steering column, as well as a TIG-welded roll cage color-matched to the frame. The interior is cooled by a new Vintage Air climate-control system. The stereo is powered by a Retrosound head unit with custom-made speaker panels that hold four Infinity Cappa 6.5-inch speakers, two Infinity Cappa subwoofers, and Alpine 600x4 and 1000x1 amplifiers. To tie this all together, the body, chassis and engine are wired with American Auto Wire harnesses. A true nut-and-bolt body off concours restoration.
