This 1982 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Asking Price Mysteriously Goes High


The used and custom markets are filled with old-fashioned trucks and SUVs that sell for very high prices (read almost six digits), things like the Ford Bronco or the F-series of a long time ago, the machines of the past. Jeep, of course, or even some made by foreign car manufacturers. The Chevy Blazers made decades ago, while also increasing in value, are currently far from that brand, averaging between $ 10,000 and $ 20,000 in inventory.

Still, someone is asking $ 95,000 for the K5 Blazer we have here. Born in 1982, the second iteration of the truck family, it has no racing pedigree, visible styling, or mechanical enhancement, and it didn’t belong to anyone famous.

The Light Bronze Metallic and Frozen White beast has one advantage, however, that it has hardly been used, as the odometer only shows 15,000 miles (24,000 km) on the odometer. This is partly responsible for the fact that the Blazer has spent a number of years in a private collection, and we all know what the guys are like who run such things.

Justified or not, this is the asking price. For this, the buyer gets a beige fabric interior with front bucket seats, air conditioning and cruise control. The rear of the K5 is hidden under a removable hardtop and there is a drop-down window at the rear.

Under the hood is the mid-range 305ci (5.0-liter) engine equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case. A Flowmaster exhaust system helps the truck to exhale properly.

As it’s clearly trying to get collection status, the Blazer is also coming to Avant Garde, where it goes on sale, with partial service records, owner’s manuals and documentation, and a clean Carfax report.
