Description for Chevrolet Blazer 1977

A lot of early Chevrolet Blazers get lifted sky-high for off-roading, but you don't see many like this sinister 1977 restomod example that go the other direction. Slammed and raked, it's a dazzling street-truck in every sense of the word, from the burly fuel injected 5.7L V8 motor under the hood, to the miles-deep slick silver paint, and the luxurious custom Houndstooth interior. This restomod Blazer is chock-full of performance upgrades and aesthetic improvements that take it up to another level that's just downright impressive. And for the price of a used Honda, this bespoke street brawler could be headed home with you today.

Among the relatively rare rear-wheel-drive Blazers (meaning 2WD not 4WD), this one obviously stands out. Clearly built to be a no-compromises driver that's car-show ready, the original bodywork was straightened, smoothed and finessed to a very high level, and then a decision was made to swap-out the rather dated '77 front end in favor of the new-look 'Square-Body' line of Chevy trucks and SUVs, with a 1981 front clip acting as donor for this particular build. A cowl hood was also added up front, along with a billet grille and custom Bowtie market lights incorporated into the front fenders for a very trick look. After all that, the body was then coated in two-stage Ricochet Silver paint that looks like it belongs on a late-model sports car. The Blazer's chiseled good looks work well on the lowered street machine, especially with all the trim deleted, so it has that smooth custom look that makes the modifications really look timeless. That billet grille and the bright headlight buckets up front smooth out the truck's profile, and the fiberglass top shell was sanded smoothed and painted to match the color and quality of the rest of the truck. Chrome bumpers front and rear are new and there's tinted glass all around. And with 'Jake' stenciled on the cowl hood and big boy chrome rims setting the stance, everyone can easily see that this is a very special SUV.

The interior has enjoyed a full makeover, ranging from supportive Houndstooth front bucket seats with suede inlays, to the comfortable rear bench tailored in the same high-end patterns, and a custom center console upholstered to match the design. This truck comes equipped with good options as well, including a stock heater that works great, power windows and locks, an upgraded stereo system, and a tilt column, which is now topped with a nice custom leather-wrapped piece that looks like it belongs in a restomod Camaro. A later model dash was swapped-in too, featuring a fresh pad up top and billet bezels running in the center, and a full set of white-faced gauges that include a tachometer were installed just ahead of the driver for a full read-out of the big motor up ahead. A newer JVC AM/FM/CD stereo head unit lives in the dash and powers the upgraded speakers installed throughout the interior, and with a fully insulated cabin that features plush carpets and custom panels for the doors and rear seating/cargo area, you can actually hear the tunes that you've selected. The headliner up front is very clean and taut, the roof of the hard-top was nicely painted to match, and even the rear cargo area was finished to a high standard, which all serve as more proof that nothing was overlooked during the build of this killer Blazer.

Mechanically, this truck is all upgraded and fresh, with just 12,000 shakedown miles on the build of the drivetrain. A 5.7L LT1 V8 motor borrowed from a late-mode Camaro was stuffed into the engine bay, augmented with a hot-cam kit, and then dressed up with a red and chrome intake cover and chrome valve covers. The list of newer equipment around it includes a big radiator, long-tube headers, and a cold air intake system and cone filter that helps that fuel-injection system breathe easy. It's backed by a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive that spins a fresh driveshaft to a set of 4.10 gears on a Posi in the 12-bolt rear end. Obviously, it's been lowered (4 inches up front, 6 inches in the rear) but it still rides nicely thanks to smart choices in the hardware underneath, and with a Flowmaster dual exhaust system the soundtrack is more Camaro than truck. American Racing 20-inch chrome wheels have been fitted and look fantastic inside those staggered 275/45/20 front and 305/50/20 rear Toyo Proxies performance radials.

A very cool custom truck that has obviously had a lot of time and thought invested in its build. With fresh mechanicals and a luxurious paint and interior combo, isn't it time you upgraded your tow rig? Call today!
