1972 Chevrolet Blazer K5
1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer CST
Up for auction is this all stock 1972 Blazer in its original livery of orange and white. This is a very solid truck that presents itself well in every regard. As an original loaded out CST model, this Blazer still retains its original protectoplate and options sticker. This is a great vehicle that could be used for weekend cruises with friends and family or an even better truck to take to your next tailgate! Below are some more details and I also have a link to several more photos at the bottom.
The truck is believed to have spent most of its life in the dry southern climate, and definitely looks the part. There is no known rust on the truck. Underneath, the floors are solid in the front cab area as well as the bed. Door sills and inner fenders are all in good shape. Panels are straight and fitment is top notch. It has been restored, however, the age of the restoration is unknown.
The paint is excellent and the chrome on the truck is in very nice condition. All the trim is intact and accounted for. There are a few pieces that have a couple dings, which I have shown this in the photos. All of the lights on the truck work and the lenses are not cracked or broken. Hardtop is in wonderful shape inside and out. Tailgate and upper lift gate latch firmly as they should. The rear plastic window has a few scratches on it but nothing major.
The seats are a nice and firm vinyl with solid stitching around and no sunk areas. The rear seat in the truck is solid. You will see a small black scuff on the backside of the seat. Carpets are not stained and the dash not cracked or faded. All of the gauges work along with the radio, interior lights and the heat. It is optioned with the rare factory tilt steering wheel. The truck is a true air-conditioned optioned truck. Much of the system is new, however, it is currently not charged. The truck also includes factory spare, jack, owner's manual, sales brochure, and original protectoplate. Ultimately, this Blazer stands out very confidently. Both the interior and exterior are more than well presented, the next owner will not be disappointed.
The Blazer is powered by a 350 small block Chevrolet. It appears to be a factory replacement motor, there is no number stamped. It is an all stock motor down to the Quadrajet carburetor. It pulls very strong and has no problems powering all four wheels. The four-wheel drive works well and is powered through front locking hubs and a rear factory limited-slip differential. The automatic transmission shifts well up and down, no slipping at all. The power steering and power brakes both work very well and have been well maintained. This blazer has no trouble starting up or idling once warmed up. It is as reliable as you would expect out of any bulletproof small block Chevy. While driving, the trucks goes straight down the road and handles extremely well for a vehicle of its age and size. I would not shy away from driving this truck on a long distance trip. It has had all of its basic services completed within the last 100 miles and is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
The K5 Blazer fits into a special club of classics. The same club as Land Cruisers, Land Rovers, Scouts, Jeeps and Broncos. They are classic cars that also offer a sense of adventure to its driver and passengers. From the road, to the beach, to the mountains, and back to your hometown car show, there is much enjoyment to be had!
