1975 Chevrolet Blazer

Up for auction is a beautifulmoss gold 1975 Chevrolet Blazer Cheyenne4WDconvertible with the desired option 400 V8. This rarely seen factorycolor was offered for two years, ndcombined with the honey brown interior compliment this vehicle well, aking it an absolute head turner. The vinyl woodgrain was a factory option in the early to mid 70's, nd although this particular model rolled off the line in moss gold/frost white, felt the woodgrain would work well with this color. The vehicle starts, dles,and runs out nicely, ith smooth gear changes and brakes straight and true. Itruns at optimal temperature with no signs of overheating, eeps strong and steady oil pressure,and zero exhaust smoke upon startup or while operating. Early year '75 non-cat Flowmaster dual exhaust system. New matching BFGoodrich tire set. The steering has some play, ut I will attempt to diagnose and ask for assistance to repair this prior to the auction closing (if successful, will include an update to the listing). All exterior lights, ash gauges, arning lights and dials function properly.Uponcompletion ofan engine rebuild,the previous ownerwascontemplating converting theA/C system to R134, o the compressor was set aside until a decision was made. Inspecting the compressor, t spins freely but I have done nothing with it since purchase. While this is a Cheyenne model, chose to eliminate the exterior nameplates and majority of the interior vinyl woodgrain in lieu of the exterior panels. Ichose alsoto switch to the cleaner "K5 Blazer" nameplates used earlier in the decade.It has new paint,3M exterior vinyl woodgrainand carpet. 1975 was the final year for the full convertible, nd I had the shell covered in vinyl material and painted the interior of the shell to match the dyed custom honey brown factory original upholstery. Spending its vehicle life in New Mexico, he body and frame are solid without rot. The previous owner installed a searchlight, hich I removed and had a custom side mirror adaptor created by Micon R&D toutilize the existing slot. Overall, imply a beautiful and honest example of aChevyK5 Blazermaintained nicely throughout the years. With charm and period good looks, tiscertain tobring the new owner further years of proud ownership. You will find very fewBlazers still enjoying the road, nd while not a rare vehicle in production numbers, ou will find fewer still in this condition. I am not a dealer, nd certainly not aBlazerexpert -- just a guy who likes iconic and eclectic classic vehicles. And while not 100% perfect, t is dependable enough to be used as a daily driver if called upon, nd certainly a vehicle which belies its40 years of existence. If you desire anK5 Blazerwhich will stand out from the rest, hen you just may be looking at it below. Its a durable. powerfuland simple vehicle which can go through (or over) anything. Cool to drive and unquestionably commands attention -- often inducing strangers to approach inquisitively. Essentially it's a life size Tonka!
