This 1989 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is serious. It has received a solid restoration, with great stuff on the inside, and slick two-tone paint on the outside. Most of the chrome, trim, and brightwork is newer and really pops, including the KC lights on the front bumper, and the mirrors. Blacked-out step bars match the Mickey Thompson wheels, and the lift gives the whole truck an even more aggressive look, as if it needed any help in that department.
The updated gray vinyl interior is also in great condition, comfortable bucket seats, plush carpets, original door panels, and a dash pad with a matching fabric cover on it, because like almost all of these, the original pad has a couple cracks. The original gauges in the dash were swapped out for white-face aftermarket units that look crisp and clean, and they're surrounded by a restored bezel. Because this truck hasn't been extensively altered from original spec inside, still sporting the original steering wheel, and a long list of factory options like power windows and locks, a tilt wheel, a center console, and R134a A/C make this Blazer as much luxury vehicle as trail-runner, or daily driver! The removable cab cap makes for an especially enjoyable cruise in the summer months. An updated Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX/Bluetooth stereo has been installed, and it powers a booming system that's wired throughout the K5, highlighted by the big MTX subwoofer in the rear cargo area. Full-sized Blazers also give you a massive cargo area that's fully upholstered and offers enough room for all your gear on a weekend getaway.
There's still a small block Chevy under the hood, but this one is a replacement 350 V8 that was built and installed in 2017 and has approximately 8k miles on it now. It looks quite stock and as many OEM parts as possible were retained, including the serpentine accessory drive, TBI system, and stock-style valve covers. The A/C system has been converted to R134a refrigerant and it fills the cab with cold, fresh air, and a new radiator keeps the engine cool. The rear differential was rebuilt and has less than 1k miles on it now. Additionally, the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission has been fully serviced, driving a two-speed transfer case, so it's equally at home on the highway or in the dirt, and a hearty rumble bellows from the long tube header-fed dual exhaust system with bullet-style mufflers. The suspension has been set up to accommodate the large lift, and the Blazer sits on massive 33-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires wrapped around 15-inch Mickey Thompson faux bead-lock wheels.
Seriously powerful, capable, and good looking.
