Old-school rigs like the K5 Chevy Blazer and the C/K line of trucks are great, no doubt about it. However, with the right components underneath, these machines get even better. Now, Roadster Shop is aiming to offer exactly that with its new Legend Series chassis.
For those who may not know, Roadster Shop has established itself as the go-to solution for those builders that want to modernize a classic car, truck, or off-roader, offering a wealth of products spanning all the most-popular custom builds and restomods. Now, Roadster Shop has unveiled its new Legend Series chassis built specifically for the 1969 through 1980 Chevy Blazer and C/K trucks.
The Legend Series chassis is designed to provide modern comfort and drivability, plus modern durability and serviceability, all while maintaining the classic appearance of the K5 Chevy Blazer or C/K truck up top. The chassis is perfect for those builds that require easy installation without any of the guesswork, and is sure to delight once it hits the road.
Standout features include bolt-on chassis installation with no required body modifications, as well as Roadster Shop’s exclusive laser rail frame with integral crossmembers. The suspension spec incorporates a Chevy 1500 four-by-four independent front suspension with Fox coilovers and Roadster Shop’s proprietary valving, as well as Deaver’s progressive multi-leaf rear suspension with Fox shocks.
Braking is accomplished via factory Chevy 1500 front and rear discs, while CNC bent stainless lines make brake installation a breeze. Further details include an OEM Chevy 9.5-inch ring gear axle assembly, factory hydraulic power rack-and-pinion steering, and electronic push-button four-wheel-drive available on the fly. The chassis was also designed to fit the LT1 and LT4 V8 engines, and GM 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission.
Of course, builders who want something a bit more custom have plenty of options to choose from, if so desired. Check out the video below to see the new Legend Series chassis in action:
