According to the ad, this Blazer was refinished in GM Furnace Red Metallic during previous ownership, which we admit, looks good together with that black removable top and the tinted windows. Other exterior highlights include the LED headlights, dual exhausts, Warn wireless winch, KC Slimlite LED off-road lights, tubular bumpers, and black 17-inch custom wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires.
In case you can’t tell, the suspension has also been tampered with, and now features a 4” lift kit and Bilstein 5100 dampers. Breaking meanwhile is done via power-assisted discs at the front and drums at the rear.
Inside, the cloth seats give off a true vintage vibe, as does the rear bench. We also dig the brushed aluminum accents throughout the cabin, custom center console, Kicker amp and speakers, RetroSound stereo, air conditioning, Dakota Digital instrumentation, and the two-spoke steering wheel.
As for the engine, it’s a 350 ci V8 sourced from a 1988 Corvette. The seller claims it was honed and bored over 0.040”, and now boasts four-bolt main bearing caps, hypereutectic pistons, Edelbrock cylinder heads and valve covers, plus a bunch of other minor modifications. Once on the move, the power makes its way to either the rear or all four wheels via a four-speed 700R4 automatic gearbox with a NP208 dual-range transfer case and 10-bolt front and rear axles.
Got anything cooler?As a matter of fact, we do. Just recently we showed you two very intriguing trucks, both featuring similar underpinnings to this Blazer.
Let’s start with the most bonkers of the two, which is this tuned 1987 K5 Blazer, with the custom suspension, 40-inch mud-terrain tires, heavily modified interior and twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter Vortec V8 engine. According to that seller, that engine was good for 600-wheel horsepower, meaning roughly 800 horsepower at the crank. That thing ended up selling for $45,500 to a very lucky person.
Option no.2 is this custom 1986 GMC K1500 High Sierra, powered by a supercharged 6.0-liter VortecMax V8, good for 470 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. That one sold for $26,500.
