Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1996 Chevrolet Blazer has spent most of its life thus far under the same owner, and that has given this the right mix of preservation and investments. This includes a loaded leather interior with A/C, a useful 4x4 setup, and fresher fuel-injected power. It's all brought together in a right-size SUV.
The consignor bought this Blazer in 1998, and so that means nearly a quarter-century under the same ownership. It's an easy vehicle to own and love in premium LT trim. The factory gave this a detailed style with Cherry Red on top and an Ultra Silver two-tone that artfully flows over the flared fenders. There's even a matching silver pinstripe. There are more premium details like the 15-inch alloys, roof rack, and split tailgate. You'll find wear, dings, and faded spots just from some use, but that's not this Blazer's full story. The panels have the kind of fit that really shows proper respect. And there have been the right investments. For example, the odometer shows the actual mileage, but it had a Jasper crate motor installed a few years ago and only about 25k miles have been put on it since then. There are also nice accessories, like the bug guard, full running boards, and Euro-style tail lights. It means you have the right investment to have this one looking and feeling fresher, and that makes for a solid driver that's also maturing into full classic status and distinction.
The silver lower section of the paint theme is also a preview of the silver/gray interior. This has been driven, but just like the exterior, there's an overall level of completeness that shows it has been owned with care. That's why it still feels like a quality driver. It's also attractive because you have excellent driver features. There are high-back front bucket seats, a power-adjustable driver's side, a grippy airbag steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, and a full gauge package with large speedo and tach. As a premium LT-level Blazer you get plenty of premium features, including power windows, power locks, power mirrors, the Delco AM/FM/cassette stereo (now with added CD changer,) and cold-blowing air conditioning. This also has both a cup holder center console and an overhead storage console. There's adult-sized room in the rear, and the clamshell tailgate is great for everything from loading cargo to sitting on the back at ballgames.
Under the hood is the correct-style 4.3-liter V6, but as we hinted before, this fuel-injected Vortec motor is also a fresher powerhouse. It was the largest and final evolution of the S-10 Blazer line, and so it's the one you really want. Its healthy torque reputation gets you going from stoplights with a nice hustle, and it's also great when it's time to get any work done. This is a true 4x4, and the two-speed transfer case is engaged via buttons on the dash. So you never have to get out and lock hubs if you decide to hit the trails. But this is made for more than just the off-road life. That's why there's a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive and cruise control. And power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a comfortable ride make for great any-time driving appeal.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet and maintenance records. This is a capable, useful, and loaded S-10 Blazer you know you're going to love. Call today!!!
