1979 Chevrolet Blazer K5 Additional Info:

You're bidding on a beautiful classic rare 2 owner 100% rust free 1979 Chevrolet K5 Blazer 4x4 that runs and drives as good as it looks.
20k miles on a Goodwrench 350 crate engine. Runs perfect. Smooth quiet & powerful. Starts every time with a click of the key. No leaks, no knocks, no smoke, no issues. Runs cool. Feshly tuned with new everything including HEI distributor, fuel pump, plugs, plug wires, air filter, fluids & Edelbrock 1406 4bbl carburetor. Freshly installed oil pan gasket, valve covers and rear main seal ensures zero leaks. These 350 motors were typically built in Flint, MI. At least one of them has gone over a million miles in a case where it was apparently, as my machinist buddy says,accidentallybalanced and blueprinted!
Turbo 350 automatic trans shifts smooth as designed. Came from a '73 Suburban which had a stronger case than these later K series trannies. Was rebuilt 20k miles ago when a shift kit was also installed. No leaks. No issues. Fresh fluids and filter. Was just removed (for rear main seal change) and resealed with a fresh pan gasket and front pump seal.
Heavy Duty NP 205 Gear Driven transfer case works smooth as designed. Was mated to the TH350 trans from the same '73 Suburban. Much stronger and lighter than those factory 203 cases that these 79's came with. This unit was refurbished 20k miles ago and just got fresh fluid & seals. No leaks.
Both front and rear drive shafts just refurbished with new Neapco U-Joints.
Rear 30 Spline 12 Bolt 3.73 gear Posi rear end with fresh fluids. No leaks. Much stronger than the 10 bolt with 28 splines that began appearing around this time.
Dana 44 front end. 3.73 gear. Open carrier. Fresh fluid. No leaks. Warn Premium manual lockout hubs.
4 inch Skyjacker Soft Ride Lift kit with Skyjacker long travel shocks. Very smooth ride. Not at all stiff like many Blazer lifts made for this era. This truck has no rattles.
4 New (literally 4 miles - bought the Weds. before Thanksgiving) 33 x 12.5 x 15 BFG KO All Terrain Radials mounted on factory 15x8 GM Rally Wheels painted to match body color.
New interior with new full length carpet, glove leather dash pad and new seats. All the power windows and gauges, lights and signals work as designed. The radio deck slot was intentionally left blank so new owner could design their own sound system. The only thing missing are the little leatherette pockets on the door panels.
AC blows cold. Heat blows hot. Has been converted to modern 134A freon.
Rear window cranks up & down manually as designed from the exterior with new crank handle and internal clutch pack from LMC Truck. The crank used to roll the rear tailgate window up & down from the interior is missing and not available from LMC so keep your eye out for one.
Zero rust on this truck. Tucson, Arizona is where the US Air Force mothballs all their old planes in case they wish to press them back into service precisely because it's so dry that metals don't oxidize here. If you were to scrape all the rust off this truck and weigh it there wouldn't even be an ounce worth of dust. On a scale of 10 it would be a 10 as far as lack of rust.
Rebuilt steering gear box. No leaks. Frame surrounding gear box has been professionally reinforced with welded frame brace as all these old Chevy 4x4's should be.
New brakes on all 4 corners with new rear wheel cylinders.
New professionally installed windshield with antenna built in.
Of course most all this work performed comes with receipts.
Just professionally repainted with metallic green. Lots of time and money into this refurbishment. The BEFORE pictures show how body was perfectly straight and sanded down. No rust and no bondo anywhere.
It does have a wrinkle in the chrome front bumper shown in the front shot picture.
Comes with Clean Arizona Notarized title. Not salvaged. Truck never wrecked. Never had rust or bondo. 175k miles on chassis. 20k miles on new engine and rebuilt drive train. Odometer/cluster from wrecked GMC Jimmy that had just turned over 100k was installed when new drive train was installed so odometer reads 20k to match drive train.
