This 1989 Chevrolet Blazer K5 is the comfortable classic 4×4 that has been given plenty of investments to make it bolder and more fun
So if you like proper V8 power, a lifted stance, and a unique style, read on for all the details.
This is from the final years for the big/boxy K5 Blazers. This design always made them look beefy and dominant. But the last few also got a unique face. It’s a tasteful headlight and grille package that seemed to make these look wider and more prevailing. So that already gives this one appeal right from the first impression. The paint package is a custom two-tone that looks like it utilizes Chevy’s iconic Hugger Orange and intertwines it with white to give you the kind of nostalgia you’d love on the classic C10 pickups. It’s a quality application that even has a gold pinstripe, but you don’t need to be afraid to take it off-road. After all, with the lifted suspension and side steps, this one was made to leave the pavement. And no matter where you go, we like the extra attitude this one put forward. After all, Hugger Orange was also a favorite of muscle cars, and this one has the cowl hood and big dual exhaust tips to give a hint at that history, too.
Inside is a well-done package. For example, the exterior orange returns on the lower dash, and the exterior pinstripe was almost like a preview for the rest of the tan inside. You have high-back bucket seats up front. These have the clean look and are covered in a comfy cloth. And the fold-down armrest and cup holder center console make it easy to get comfortable. The rear is also done in a matching tan cloth, and it provides adult-sized room. Plenty of family and friends will want to go for a ride thanks to great features, like the power windows, power locks, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The white hardtop is removable, and a large Blazer means plenty of cargo room and a large tailgate for sitting. So you know this one is ready for all your favorite activities.
Under the hood is proper Chevy power. The 350 cubic-inch V8 appears to be a later replacement motor, and it appears to be surrounded by newer components, including the hoses. This V8 is built with your favorite upgrades, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an upgraded intake, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. The two-speed 4×4 transfer case, four-inch suspension lift, and Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ P3 tires prove the fun doesn’t stop when the pavement ends. And power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission are the kind of things you’ll appreciate even when you’re just driving through town.
