Worldwide Vintage Autos is pleased to present this 1971 Chevrolet Blazer. We do a lot of these first generation blazers and this one is ONE OF THE NICEST WE HAVE SEEN! Top to bottom restoration. “The forward looking collector will note that classic trucks are just getting started - and there are plenty of underpublicized specimens out there” Autoweek Magazine February 2016. We scour the country for vintage cars and trucks like this and we rarely come across one like this! You must see and drive this rare Blazer!
The original K5 was a short wheelbase truck. It was available in 1969 as 4-wheel drive only; in 1970, a two-wheel-drive model was offered. There were four choices for power plants: the 250 in straight-6, the 292 straight-6, the 307 V8, and the 350 V8.
The Blazer was designed and marketed to compete with International Harvester Scout and the Ford Bronco. Both of these were originally aimed at the short Jeep CJ series, which were much smaller than other trucks. The great innovation of the Blazer was to simply offer a shortened pickup truck, which both increased interior space, and lowered the cost of production with a shared platform. The Blazer quickly became popular. For the first time, it married the off-road capabilities of the Scout with the “luxury” features like air conditioning and automatic transmissions routinely available on pickup trucks. By 1970, the Blazer was already outselling both of its older rivals. Ford, Dodge, and even Jeep would counter with similar shortened pickups, with the Dodge Ramcharger and Jeep Cherokee. It also came as a convertible. SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
