Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
It's time to make everyone say "wow" wherever you go. This 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer takes the style we love about the classic open-top utility vehicle, and then gives it a full modern street machine makeover, including a powerful big block V8, custom interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and a seriously slick style. So you know that this is a true one-of-a-kind.
This is not the Blazer for the outback woods. The slick finish on the is part of a restoration/transformation that was only completed less than 6,500 miles ago. The Tangelo Orange paint is a modern bold color with huge shine that showcases the well-defined and super straight bodywork. There are custom details everywhere you look, like on the upgraded cowl hood, expertly shave trim and door handles, mirror-like bumpers, and Cadillac-style taillights skillfully integrated into the body. And the lowered suspension is the perfect way to draw extra attention to the brand-new Billet Specialty alloys (a $8,000 investment all on their own.)
Because this is a full custom topless roadster, they took the time to shave inches out of the door line and give it a smooth round top. This makes for a seamless transition to the interior. The brown leather seats feel supple, and they coordinate nicely with the exterior color thanks to the orange suede-like inserts. The custom door panels match, and so this is a full uniform presentation you'll proudly share with the world. This has got terrific upgrades, like the dual armrest center console, cup holders, and AM/FM/CD stereo with modern Bluetooth and a custom subwoofer setup. But what you'll really appreciate is how much this is a driver's machine. You'll love the way the front bucket seats hug your body. The wood-rimmed steering wheel is on a tilt column. And the '59 Chevy dash is a great was to bring in a custom classic element while still being able to add crisp AutoMeter gauges.
More of the showmanship comes from the forward-tilting hood. After all, when was the last time you saw a Blazer have that? It attracts people to come closer, and when they do, they'll see an award-worthy engine bay. The 396 cubic-inch V8 looks terrific with those smooth fender walls funneling your attention to all the polished components in the middle. But once you get past the great appearance, you'll see the substance of go-fast goodies on this big block like the large Quick Fuel 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and Hedman long tube headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. But more than brute force, this is a thoughtful total build. For example, you have an Eddie Motorsports serpentine belt system, Optima red top battery, and large radiator w/electric fans keeping everything cool in the engine bay. As you look in the undercarriage photos, you'll see more signs of a fresh build, and the desirable trailing arm rear suspension also has Belltech shocks and springs. Add in power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and power four-wheel disc brakes, and you have an unbeatable anytime combination in this very custom Chevy.
This is a high-quality build that's out to get attention. So if you love a powerful custom roadster, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
