This 1976 Chevrolet Blazer offers a great mix of vintage SUV appeal and nicely executed customization. It's sure to turn heads with its nice, vibrant color and fresh appearance and has obviously been well-maintained over the years. It's also a California truck so it's a very solid ride and the strong running condition provides a comfortable driving experience.
With its ultra sharp Pearl Orange color and aggressive, lowered stance this classic SUV isn't likely to get lost in a crowd anytime soon, but its appeal goes well beyond sheer visual impact. There's plenty of workmanship on display here as well - plenty of prep work went in before the first pull on the trigger of the spray gun so the paint has a nice smooth texture and a great, wet-looking shine and the modified stance was performed with some careful planning, so it's nice and balanced. Everything looks well-fitted too the body alignment appears precise, with tight uniform gaps between panels, the rectangular tips of the side exhausts peek out just the right amount and the contrasting white shell lines up really nicely with the bed below it. From the front grille on back to the signature chrome panel on the liftgate with its Chevrolet badging displayed with a near 3-D effect, the exterior fittings are in great shape.
This classic Blazer features a very comfortable interior, with a pair of plushly padded gray cloth bucket seats at its center that straddle a spacious center console and fresh-looking black carpeting below. There's a nice attention to detail displayed - the woodgrain accents on the door panels appear to be freshly applied, as does the matching panel on the instrument cluster, which itself houses an array of factory gauges that all work as intended and are joined by a white-faced factory tach below the tilt column. It's a very nice vantage point from which to navigate this classic. The factory air conditioning has been converted to modern refrigerant and blows strong and cold and a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity has been seamlessly installed and teams with speakers very nicely placed throughout the cabin and rear storage area to create a quality audio experience while on the road. You can get even more perspective as to the quality of this restoration when you step around to the back and see how well fitted the contrasting carpeting is as it covers the floor and rear wheel wells.
The driving experience this vintage Chevy offers is impressive. There's a 350 cubic inch V8 standing by in the engine compartment that still wears its factory 4-barrel carb over an Edelbrock intake and it starts up very easily and sends a nice, throaty exhaust note out those side exits as it teams with the 3-speed automatic transmission just behind it. The ride is nice and tight, without too much rebound over uneven road, and the tracking is reassuringly straight. Power steering makes navigating this classic nice and easy in everyday driving conditions, while power brakes that feature discs up front bring dependable, low-effort stops. Sure to draw plenty of admiring glances, this sharp looking SUV rides on a set of 17" Eagle Alloy wheels wrapped with Hankook tires. Below, the undercarriage looks solid and straight.
This 1976 Chevrolet Blazer shows plenty of skilled workmanship both inside and out and its strong running condition makes it well up to the task of frequent driving. Call today!
