Description for Chevrolet K5 1971

With its aggressive stance, period correct paint scheme and overall well-turned out appearance, this 1971 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is simply an awesome, rugged-looking classic, whether it's in covered or open-air configuration. It underwent a very thorough frame off restoration a while back and the results are absolutely stare-worthy - it's exceptional in all respects. Such a great looking classic SUV! Its exterior has been left almost entirely in stock configuration, save for the addition of a... steel bowl hood and it's in impressively clean condition - this vintage Chevy would definitely make its presence felt on the local car show circuit. The Sky Blue paint it wears shows no perceptible flaws and has a glossy shine and the contrasting removable white hardtop is in great shape as well and seals nicely. The bumpers both fore and aft sport a factory-correct off-white color that's been properly applied with no nicks or chips in sight. Up front, the Chevy front grille is straight and unblemished and as you circle this rugged SUV, you can't help but notice just how strong its body alignment is - the panels and doors really line up well. Its 6" lift gives it a stance you can't help but admire, as well as plenty of wheel clearance that comes in handy over less forgiving terrain. On all sides, the array of badging and chrome exterior fittings is looking its best. The interior also retains its factory appearance and has received a thorough going over, so it's in outstanding condition. The plush white buckets up front sit over an expanse of new black carpeting and, judging from their unstained, wrinkle-free appearance, haven't seen much use, while the center console between them has been replaced entirely. The rear bench seat is in matching condition, with hand rails to each side painted to match the exterior - a nice finishing touch. Up front, the dash area is glossy and smooth, featuring a collection of clear gauges in its instrument cluster and an AM/FM stereo with iPod compatibility to fill the cabin with sound. Peer a little lower and you'll notice that even the kick panels, often an area to show wear from restless feet, are in top notch shape. Lower the liftgate in back and you'll find some welcome storage space behind the rear bench seat. Ample dependable power comes via the 350 cubic inch V8 in place between a pair of ultra-clean inner wheelhouses, with a radiator shroud in matching condition up front. The engine wears a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb with a spacer for a little extra muscle and sounds great as it exhales into a pair of headers leading out to the dual exhaust. An HEI ignition has also been added to heat up the available spark. Sitting behind the powerplant pairs is a 4-speed manual transmission that's shifting with slip free precision and, should the call of less traveled terrain beckon, this Chevy's 4-wheel drive surefootedness also functions in top form. The aggressive lift this classic proudly wears comes at no cost to its ride quality - for a truck with a modified stance, it rides unusually smoothly on its set of 15" wheels wearing beefy 35x12.5R15 Maxxis Buckshot Mudder tires. Smooth power steering makes this rugged customer easy to navigate, while power brakes that feature discs up front bring it to prompt, fade-resistant stops on asphalt and dirt alike. You'll seldom see a representative of early '70s Chevy awesomeness anywhere near on a par with this 1971 Chevrolet K5 Blazer. Call today!
