1976 Chevrolet Blazer Blazer Cheyenne Additional Info:

Sometimes it's better to let the other guy restore a cool truck, then pick it up as a finished piece. Look at the price on this 1976 Chevy Blazer Cheyenne as you peruse the photos, and bear in mind that someone spent quite a bit more than the asking price getting it into the condition you see today.
The K10 Blazer was a handsome truck, perhaps one of Chevy's best designs ever. Even after more than three decades, this one still looks contemporary, helped, of course, by the go-anywhere stance and timeless silver finish. Look carefully, and you'll note that all the original trim remains, the body hasn't been shaved or modified, and you're left with just the basic goodness that came right from the factory. The finish looks right for a truck that's going to spend some time off-road, nice enough that you'll be proud to show it but not so perfect that you'll never use it as intended. Panel gaps are good, the finish is uniform, and you can tell from the reflections that someone really cared about this truck and never used it as a winter beater. Then there's the white hardtop, which is indeed removable for the ultimate in open-air off-roading fun.
It's just as impressive inside, where there are bucket seats wearing flashy red upholstery that is a welcome contrast to all the drab '70s colors in other trucks. The seat covers are new and accurately replicate the factory patterns, creating a cohesive look that is both comfortable and practical (it is still a truck, after all). Chevy gave these trucks a fairly comprehensive dashboard layout, and you'll note that this one carries factory A/C. OK, so the faux wood isn't very convincing and the gauges are a little faded, but the dash pad is in good shape, the door panels are unmarked, and recent carpets are surprisingly plush. And you will definitely dig the AM/FM radio with an 8-track player, which is perfect for a truck from the '70s (but it's also OK if you want to upgrade to something more contemporary). As you'd expect, the cargo bay is giant, and since this is an up-level Cheyenne, there's more plush carpet and faux wood even in the back.
A fresh crate 350 lives under the hood, and it was built to be powerful and reliable. There's more power on tap than the original unit and thanks to an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor, it has plenty of torque right where you need it. Installed in 2015, it runs like it should and doesn't have any special needs. Just add gas and start having fun! The A/C has been converted to R134a refrigerant, and a newer alternator supplies the juice. The engine exhales through a set of long-tube headers dumping into a dual exhaust system that sounds muscular, while a TH350 3-speed automatic remains in place behind the engine, along with the familiar 2-speed transfer case. The entire front suspension and brakes were rebuilt in May 2017, including new calipers, wheel bearings, seals, and shocks. Familiar truck Rally wheels look ready for anything and carry giant off-road radials that really make the truck.
The time and effort to build a truck like this is considerable, but the price is remarkably reasonable. Don't miss this opportunity and call today!
