STOCK AND ORIGINAL K5 BLAZER, REMOVABLE HARDTOP, VERY CLEAN & UNMODIFIED

We sell a lot of C- and K-series Chevy pickups, but not so many K5 Blazers like this 1987 example. Why? Perhaps it's because they made a fraction as many of these as they did pickup trucks. Maybe a lot of them were just used as intended and just got used up along the way. Or maybe it's just because their owners love them so much they're unwilling to let them go.

Whatever the reason, it's easy to see why these trucks remain perennial favorites for off-road fans. The chiseled good looks are obviously based on the pickup trucks, but there's so much more to a Blazer than just a pickup with a cap. The proportions are exactly right and when rendered in white, it's a big, high-visibility piece of 4x4 hardware that looks tough enough to climb a mountain. It appears that this one is still wearing original paint, which will give you a very good indication of how well-maintained it really is. The contrasting dark blue lower rocker panel areas make it look a lot sleeker and the white painted top gives it a unified look, unlike the usual black top that can be jarring to look at. Nice chrome and stainless trim give the Blazer an upscale look and this later example has the desirable stacked headlights up front.

The blue interior looks straight out of the 1980s, and that's not a bad thing. New seat covers match the original velour material and patterns and work well with things like the original door panels and carpet. It's got a few signs of use, but overall this truck continues to impress us with its preservation. The gauges still offer bright markings, the back seat looks almost completely unused, and even the cargo area shows well. Features include factory A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt wheel, and the original AM/FM/cassette stereo system with big speakers in the cargo bay. The top is indeed removable and there's something special about a topless blazer on a sunny day, making it easy to imagine taking this truck to the beach or to your favorite remote spot. There's a full-sized spare on board, so you never have to worry about getting stranded with a flat.

The engine is GM's tried-and-true 350 cubic inch V8 with throttle body fuel injection (TBI). It's easy to spot with that unique air cleaner and the engine bay is shockingly clean for a 30-year-old truck. Despite being a 350 Chevy, it's completely stock, so it starts easily and runs smoothly with good torque that moves the big truck without ever feeling like it's working hard. Backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, this big 4x4 actually does pretty well on the highway and with a 2-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles, it also has the hardware to crawl through some pretty rough terrain. The exhaust has a pleasant V8 sound that's muted enough to make this a favorite long-distance cruiser and it sits right on factory wheels with big 31x10.50-15 white-letter off-road radials that fill the wheel wells perfectly.

Look for these trucks to become a lot more popular in coming years as values on early Broncos skyrocket. And that's not even taking into account just how much fun these are to drive. Call today!
