1971 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Soft Top
Yoo-hoo! The BEACH is calling! ⛱. Signature Autosports in Castle Hayne, North Carolina, are proud to present our latest offering — a classic, collectible, and “ready to tackle the sand or the trails" 1971 Chevrolet K5 Blazer.
Finished in quintessential “Chevrolet Orange” with a black soft top and NEW black neoprene seat covers, this Blazer rides high on 35x12.50x15 Dunlop® Radial Rovers® wrapped around true ‘70s throw-back 15x10 12-hole aluminum wheels.
The Chevrolet K5 Blazer was a full-size sport-utility vehicle built by General Motors. As GM's smallest full-size SUV, it was part of the Chevrolet C/K truck family and was introduced to the Chevrolet line for the 1969 model year as a four-wheel-drive only. For the Blazer, there were four choices for power plants — and this 1971 model is equipped with the top-of-the-line 350 cubic inch (5.7L) V8 mated to a Turbo Hydromatic (TH350) three-speed automatic transmission.
The Blazer was designed and marketed to compete with International Harvester Scout® and the Ford Bronco®, both of which were originally aimed at the short Jeep CJ series, and were much smaller than other trucks. The innovation of the Blazer was to simply offer a shortened pickup truck, which both increased interior space and lowered the cost of production with a shared platform. The Blazer quickly became popular, and for the first time, it married the off-road capabilities of the Scout® with the "luxury" features like air conditioning and automatic transmissions routinely available on pickup trucks. By 1970, the Blazer was already outselling both of its older rivals. Ford, Dodge, and even Jeep would counter with similar shortened pickups, with the Dodge Ramcharger and Jeep Cherokee®. The four-wheel-drive version had a solid front axle and used leaf springs front and rear, offering 8” of ground clearance and an approach angle of 35° from the factory.
Below is a list of recent remedial work performed on this time-honored off-roader:
- New carburetor with electric choke
- New fuel tank
- New fuel lines
- New Fuel pump
- New Optima® Red Top battery
- New rear brakes
- New rear wheel cylinders, etc.
- New front brake pads
- New spark plugs
- New stainless steel mirror heads
- New body side molding
Is it perfect? No. But it's a VERY SOLID SURVIVOR you can drive and enjoy it as it is or take it to the next level. We have a clean Florida title in hand and would love to see this K5 go to someone who truly appreciates classic ’70s trucks!
