First coming to our attention courtesy of Vanguard Motor Sales, based out of Plymouth, Michigan, this beauty has unfortunately already been sold, but it is still worthy of our collective ogling, and should provide a good deal of inspiration for all those Chevrolet Blazer fans out there.
The SUV received a full frame-off restoration, and looks utterly fantastic in its flawless Canary Yellow paint. Up front is the original grille, while the white lift-off top allows for some fun in the sun. Stainless and chrome trim can be found in all the right spots, and even the door lips and door jambs are clean and correct.
“Underneath you could eat off any surface,” Vanguard Motor Sales writes.
As for motivation, this 1971 Chevrolet Blazer runs a 350 cubic-inch V8 engine, with stock heads and an aluminum intake. An Edelbrock Single Four-Barrel 1406 carburetor with an electric choke sits on top, while a dual exhaust system with FlowMaster mufflers and Jet-coated headers evacuates spent gasses.
The ‘eight connects to a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, which feeds a 12-bolt rear end with 3.73:1 gearing and an open differential. There’s also a Dana 44 front axle.
Power steering and power brakes keep it civil, with front discs and rear drums throw the anchor. The lifted suspension includes front leaf springs with new bushings and rear leaf springs. Fifteen-inch wheels sit at all four corners and come wrapped in 33-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires.
The cabin features saddle leather bucket seating, as well as new carpeting and upholstery. The factory roll bar remains, while the rear seat is equally well-preserved. Even the bed looks sharp.
