The Blazer was designed and marketed to compete with International Harvester Scout and the Ford Bronco. Both of these were originally aimed at the short Jeep CJ series, which were much smaller than other trucks. The great innovation of the Blazer was to simply offer a shortened pickup truck, which both increased interior space, and lowered the cost of production with a shared platform. The Blazer quickly became popular. For the first time, it married the off-road capabilities of the Scout with the "luxury" features like air conditioning and automatic transmissions routinely available on pickup trucks. By 1970, the Blazer was already outselling both of its older rivals. Ford, Dodge, and even Jeep would counter with similar shortened pickups, with the Dodge Ramcharger and Jeep Cherokee.
The 1971 Blazer offered comes to us from the great state of California and has been fortunate to have been treated to a complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration. The truck is powered by a Blue Print Engineering prepared 383 cubic inch engine hooked to a 700R4 automatic transmission and transferred to the wheels via a newly prepared transfer case. The truck features ¾ ton axles, custom 16 inch aluminum wheels, 4 inch suspension lift, Eldlebrock performer Carb and intake, hooker headers, power steering, power brakes, front disc brakes, electric cooling fan, all new hoses, all new suspension components, rancho 5000 shocks, MSD ignition, dual Magnaflow exhaust, Alpine sound system, new seats, new carpet and fully removable hard top. The restoration and modification on this truck is high quality in all areas and the performance is amazing.
Vintage 4X4's have found favor with the collector car world and early K5 Blazers are red hot. These trucks continue to serve many purposes in adventure, utility and family fun; and they are considered excellent automotive investments. This is a great vehicle for a seasonal home, everyday use and the centerpiece of any collection.
