1985 Chevrolet Blazer K5 Silverado
This is a really cool 1985 K5 that was built by a diesel mechanic at the local Kenworth dealer.
The original 6.2 non turbo diesel has been replaced by a rebuilt (20k)military version 6.5 TD with ARP head studs and Holset HX35W turbo off a 2nd gen Cummins 12 valve.
The weak 700r4 was replaced by a rebuilt (10k) 4l80e heavy duty overdrive automatic from a 1 ton truck.
Mechanically this truck is in excellent shape, starts, runs, drives, stops perfectly!
The body in very solid with only a very small amount of rust I the rocker at the rear corner of the door, behind drivers rear tire and bottom of the tail gate but I have a clean black gate that comes with the truck.
The paint is peeling and ugly.
The interior is dirty, windshield is broken, dash is cracked.
The tires don't have a lot of tread and are old but drive fine.
Big exhaust, sounds mean.
Everything works on the truck except the AC and cruise, its all there just doesn't work.
3.73 gears with factory locking rear differential.
The conversion looks like factory.
The truck hauls ass, doesn't smoke or leak.
Always starts easily.
