In 1969 GM released the revolutionary Chevrolet K5 Blazer. The Blazer was a full-size sport-utility vehicle with a short-wheelbase frame. It was initially built to compete with the International Harvester Scout & the Ford Bronco. After its introduction, the Blazer quickly became popular and outsold both of its rivals. What made the Blazer very popular was the amalgamation of its sturdy off-road capabilities with luxury touches such as air conditioning and automatic transmission. Making its way into pop culture, the Chevy Blazer has been extensively used in the popular TV series Stranger Things. In our inventory, we have a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer with a 502CI V8 crate engine at just 20,000 miles. It features a number of upgrades to appeal to those looking for a standout classic SUV.
