It's got the rugged good looks of a classic SUV, but with a strong running condition you don't often find in its counterparts of the era. Piloting this 1984 Chevrolet K5 Blazer 4x4 is no "cross your fingers and hope for the best" exercise - it's very much ready to drive - and with its powertrain faithfully replaced with a Goodwrench 350 V8, combining with 4-wheel drive surefootedness, this is one seriously versatile ride.
The K5 Blazers are a sturdy looking bunch. Broad and brawny, it has a killer stance and has generously sized wheel wells capable of accommodating the 33-inch thick rubber with plenty of clearance; this K5 is more than a mere grocery-getter. And although this '84 is plenty well-suited for everyday driving conditions, it'll easily thrive in rugged territory as well. Resprayed to a high-end driver quality, it's looking great in its slick black paint, matched by the removable black top and patented center grille strip. Big, bright bumpers sit both fore and aft, with the former accented by a lower chin spoiler, and the combination of shiny brightwork and blacked-out trim throughout the Blazer gives it a tough, custom look. Befitting of showing-off on both the trail and the blacktop. The removable hard top is a great feature - sitting in place, its clean condition and shiny black color really add to this Blazer's crisp appearance, while removing it adds another dimension - converting this versatile vehicle into a semi open-air all-terrain cruiser.
The interior is in great condition while retaining a sort of spartan quality that's very much in keeping with this sturdy SUV's identity. You won't find too many overbearing aftermarket touches on display, but the elements inside have received enough recent attention to freshen the entire cabin. Both the front buckets and rear bench seat looks fresh and have plenty of miles left in them and have retained their shapes well to provide plenty of comfort on the road, and a nicely sized center console sits up front to offer plenty of interior storage space. The dash pad and gauge panel look new, as does the full-length carpet, and in keeping with the highline Silverado trim option, power windows and power locks are welcome as is the R134a A/C although the compressor does need servicing. You'll find an aftermarket steering wheel at the head of the driver's control, while just beyond it the dash area also retains its factory condition and displays a set of clear gauges in its instrument cluster. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD/AUX player powers the upgraded speakers inside the cabin, and the rear storage area is so neatly presented and has so much space, you'll be dying to pack up this Blazer and take it cross-country.
With a Goodwrench 350 V8 crate motor sitting under the hood, this truck has plenty of power to handle whatever comes its way. Built with the open road in mind, the engine is running strong and smooth and pairs with a 4-speed automatic 700R4 transmission to make up a very capable drivetrain. A stock ignition system cranks the K5 with ease, spinning the stock belt system and emitting a throaty rumble flowing from the longtube headers that feed the dual exhaust system below. While engaging 4-wheel drive in so many vintage trucks is often a laborious process, here the feature is in good form - with a flick of the lever sitting within easy reach, it engages seamlessly for those times when the terrain beyond the asphalt beckons. Yet with power steering and power front disc brakes on board, this classic Chevy also has the road manner suited for everyday driving. Bring it up to cruising speed, then step down on the brake pedal and it tracks straight ahead on its new 15" alloy wheels wrapped with 33x12.5x15 all-terrain radials.
Fully sorted and built with an eye toward both style and function, this 1984 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Silverado is truly a vehicle for all seasons. Call today!
