This 1972 Chevrolet Blazer K5 was restored and customized as a rear-drive street-cruising open-top truck, featuring significant mechanical updates, custom exterior modifications, and a dropped suspension. The original engine was swapped for a 454-cu.in. V-8, which was reportedly rebuilt prior to installation. According to the seller, the engine features GM cast-aluminum heads, a high-performance cam, an Edelbrock aluminum intake with a 750-cfm carburetor, a K&N air filter and housing, dual electric high-flow fans, Hooker headers, and a 2.5-inch mandrel-bent exhaust with FlowPro mufflers. The engine has a decidedly stock appearance, though, with valve covers and block painted in Chevrolet blue. The Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 three-speed automatic transmission was reportedly rebuilt prior to installation. The seller reports that the driveshaft is custom, and at the rear is the original GM 10-bolt differential, rebuilt with a 3.73 limited-slip differential.  the Blazer was painted Crystal Silver with a heavy silver metalflake in 2008 and that it was prepped and primed before two coats of color and three coats of clear were applied. Prior to paint, the vehicle received new fenders, doors, rocker panels, and floors to repair rust, along with a custom cowl-induction hood. All of the door handles and marker lights were shaved, and the doors were trimmed to match the box and blend with the cowl. The tailgate handle was flipped to the inside position, and the fuel filler was integrated into the top of the cargo box rail using a Harley-Davidson fuel cap. The vehicle has no top. the glass is all in good condition, that the seals were replaced during the restoration, and that all the exterior lighting is functional.
