1978 Chevrolet Blazer
Blazer—something that blazes or shines brightly. A hot coal used to prepare food in the outdoors.
For consignment is a Chevrolet Blazer which can only be described as Grizzly Adams dressed with bling. A ground off restoration, lots of upgrades and quality replaced parts were used on this very custom, outdoor mountain climber, ready to blaze a trail into any wilderness.
Custom brown over tan with a shaved grille, fiberglass hood, smoothed bumpers, and chromed 20x10 rims with BF Goodrich tires maintain the tough yet sophisticated look. Throw in some “wild” airbrushing, 2 steel tube running boards, gold colored anodized exhaust, custom tail lighting, and a sunshade, and the call of the outdoors harkens.
Steele two tone tan and black seats, new carpet, and a bowtie headliner frame a custom rebuilt center console with a B&M hammer shifter, are all ergonomically positioned. Some extra gauges have been added to monitor key engine vitals, and an aftermarket stereo with sub woofers, will have the birds flying out of the trees on your way to the top of the hill. A carpeted cargo area with an airbrushed covered spare tire moved to the interior offering a clean sweep to the tailgate with a roll up window.
A 350ci turbo V8 sits in a pristine engine bay, and sports new Cyclone headers, intake and distributor. A 5 row radiator, meant for towing has an electric fan to keep the hot mill cool even at high altitude. A Flowmaster exhaust allows heavy exhaling. Suspension mods include a spring redux, new axles, 3.73 gears, poly mounts on body and springs, and posi unit covers. A new transfer case changing the full time 4-wheel drive to 2-wheel drive with on demand 4-wheel drive has been performed. 2 large NOS tanks can be seen in the cargo area, which are purely ornaments, as are the teddy bear heads flanking them.
From a mild-mannered Chevrolet Blazer transformed to a true bear on the trail with some stylish bling, this classic can take you out on the town, or out in the middle of nowhere, with power, traction and cosmetic upgrades that are enough to make you roar with pleasure. So, go tame the wild!
