With countless original examples in various conditions popping up in the marketplace, this 1987 Chevrolet K5 Blazer sports custom features to make it stand out. Starting with the exterior, which has been finished off in matte black. The custom features don't end there, as when you move over to the front, the grille has been modified to provide a concealed headlight look. A blue racing stripe runs along the rear of the vehicle, which matches the 4x4 symbol on the rear fender. Standing next to this vehicle, you are reminded that its higher off the ground, and you aren't mistaken as the owner reported a 5-inch lift. The increased ride height is complemented with the addition of black aftermarket wheel and tires. Stepping into the light blue and black interior, you instantly know this is a performance machine. The dashboard is lit up with gauges keeping track of engine performance, and your tunes are brought to life with an aftermarket Kenwood sound system.
While this 1987 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is a fairly large vehicle, it is no slouch, as powering it is the legendary small block 350ci (5.7L) v8 engine that is a reliable powertrain but one that can be tuned to churn out more power in a cinch. The engine was reportedly rebuilt less than 1,000 miles ago and is ready to tackle any off-road obstacle you throw at it. Power is sent to all four wheels of this SUV through an automatic transmission which is also reported to have been rebuilt just 500 miles ago.
