SINGLE FAMILY - 2 OWNER, 141K MILES, METICULOUSLY SERVICED, STOCK, VERY CLEAN!
Full-sized 2-door SUVs are gone from the market unless you count the Jeep Wrangler, and that's really a shame. This 1987 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is practical and spacious, yet ideally sized to head out on the trails without feeling clumsy. You won't find another one this nicely finished, either, with an extensive list of new and rebuilt components that make it feel almost new.
Hailing from warm, dry Arizona, this is one clean Blazer! The subtle two-tone white and burgundy paint looks elegant on the big Chevy's squared-off bodywork, and you can see how the light color would work in the warm climate. Given the capabilities of these trucks, it wouldn't be surprising if this one lived most of its life off-road, but instead it appears that it was just a daily driver that never really saw any action. As a result, it's impressively clean and straight and with a recent repaint, it looks years younger than it is. The has an awesome shine thanks to two-stage urethane paint and the matching white top, which is technically removable, but has never been off the body, so it's tight. Factory trim and chrome appears to be original and in good condition for its age, and all the factory emblems are still in place. Interestingly, there's also a tow hitch on the front bumper because the first owner liked to push his trailers into position instead of backing them up. A neat detail.
Burgundy hi-back buckets make the Blazer feel like a tall Camaro inside and with new carpets and seat covers in the original patterns it has a very fresh look. The door panels and center console are probably original and in very good condition, and the dash has been protected from the Arizona sun since day one by a matching padded cover. The AM/FM/cassette stereo is original equipment and it is loaded with factory options including power windows and locks, power tailgate window, cruise control, a tilt column, and ice cold A/C that's been converted to R134a. Wrapped in a brushed aluminum dashboard, the factory gauges are bright and clear and with a column-shifted automatic transmission and floor-mounted 2-speed transfer case, everything is at your fingertips. The benefit of a full-sized SUV like this is cargo space, and the nicely finished rear area includes matching carpets and a full-sized spare, plus enough room for a studio apartment's worth of furniture.
Chevy's venerable 350 cubic inch V8 gives the big yet surprisingly nimble Blazer genuine enthusiasm out on the road and plenty of torque to climb through the rough stuff. The engine bay is so tidy and clean that it would be hard to imagine this truck slogging through the mud at any point in its history and there's almost nothing that deviates from stock specs. Meticulous maintenance (receipts included) suggest that this truck has been cherished since it was new and it certainly runs like a machine that was kept at the top of its game. A 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission actually makes it a very comfortable and reasonably economical highway cruiser, especially with those giant tires. The undercarriage is quite original and in good order and it sits on aluminum wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A radials that are sensibly sized to look cool and remain functional in the dirt.
The big Blazers have a special spot in off-roaders' hearts and this no-excuses 1987 example is almost too nice to go out tearing up the countryside, but given the equipment and quality, it's more than capable of doing just that. Call today!
