Florida-based custom vehicle builders Velocity Modern Classics has unveiled its new K5 Chevy Blazer restomod, providing enthusiasts with a modern take on the classic 1969 through 1972 K5 Chevy Blazer. Intended as a turnkey build, the new Velocity Chevy Blazer is decked-out head to toe in custom equipment and bespoke style. Order books are open now.
Outside, the body keeps the old-school lines intact, while adding in modern goodies like Glasurit paint, LED lighting, a custom chrome grille, matching chrome bumpers, and 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires. There’s also a set of AMP Research PowerStep retractable running boards, while options include an exterior billet package, OEM-style hard top, color-matched headliner, and upgraded belt line trim.
Moving into the hand-crafted interior, you’ll find color-matched upholstery throughout, with Procar bucket seats offering heating or ventilation features, covered in vinyl or leather upholstery. A six-point roll cage and safari top provides some drama. There’s modern infotainment as well, with smartphone integration and Dakota Digital instrumentation.
Providing the motivation in this Chevy Blazer is the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 engine, the same engine found in the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro and C7-generation Chevy Corvette. Output is measured at 460 horsepower, all of which is harnessed by the GM 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. Spent gasses exit via a custom-built performance exhaust and Magnaflow muffler.
The drivetrain incorporates an Atlas 2 transfer case, Dana 44 front axle and Dana 60 rear, plus 3.73 gears. A Velocity-exclusive Roadster Shop K5 Chassis provides the bones, while integrated front and rear sway bars, adjustable Fox coilovers, four-link suspension with triangulated rear, and 11-inch Wilwood disc brakes cover the suspension and brakes.
Velocity is offering its new K5 Chevy Blazer restomod in Signature Series trim as standard, but the build is also available in Heritage Edition trim for more premium appointment, adding in two-tone paint, paint-matched bumpers and roll cage, billet components, custom carpeting and sound deadening, leather seating with custom stitching, and more.
Each Velocity K5 Chevy Blazer restomod has a roughly 14-week build time, with initial deliveries expected this fall. Order books are open now, and interested customers are encouraged to contact Velocity directly for more information.
