1969 Chevrolet Blazer
Chevrolet introduced the Blazer in 1969 and offered a new Off-Road 4-Wheel-Drive vehicle that would rival the Ford Bronco and International Scout.
The Blazer was bigger and heavier than its competition and was built for highway driving to off-road terrain. It offered multi-leaf two-stage springs attached to the top of the axle for adequate ground clearance and a pleasant ride. A wide track I-beam axle offers extra stability with a 64 inch front track and 61 inches in the rear. Many of the same parts were used on the Blazer as the C10 pickup, and with the top of the Blazer removed the two look pretty much the same.
The standard engine is a 155 hp 250 cu. in. 6-cylinder while a 20 hp 307 cu. in. V8. and 350 cu. in. V8 were also available. Transmissions included a 4-speed manual and automatic. Options on the Blazer include a removable fiberglass top with rear lift gate and fixed side windows, air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes.
