Travis Barker, the man included by Rolling Stone magazine on the list of the 100 greatest drummers of all time for his work in various bands, is also a voracious car collector. He’s mostly a both old and new Cadillac man, but he doesn’t shy away from going for more monstrous machines.
One of the cars Blink-182’s drummer currently owns is a 1972 Chevrolet Blazer K5, customized to fit his needs and lifestyle. Fortunately for one huge Barker fan, the truck is now for sale, and can be had with no reserve during the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sale starting at the end of the week.

Wrapped in a matte Gunmetal Gray, the raised-suspension truck sits on Black Rock wheels wrapped in Nitto Trail Grappler tires, behind which Bilstein shocks are hidden.

The truck was given its makeover and a customization process in the garages of Delmo and Empire Fabrication, and that mostly meant restoring the original parts to pristine condition and gifting it with a soft top.

The black interior upholstery was handled by Fat Lucky, and the Blazer now has a LED strip roof lighting system, air conditioning, Dakota Digital gauges and a custom aftermarket sound system.

As for what powers the pickup, the tuners hid under the hood a LS3 V8, and linked it to a 3-speed automatic transmission.

The build was completed in 2015, and to date the truck has been in the possession of Barker. Now it goes under the hammer, complete with all the bling that comes from it being commissioned and driven by the artist.

As all other cars to sell at the said event, this 1972 Chevrolet Blazer K5 sells with no reserve as well. That means it will go to the highest bidder, regardless of price.

Full details on the truck, as made available by the seller, can be found at this link.
