    ***$2500 obo***

    1973 K5 Blazer Cheyenne
    Originally an AZ truck, very little rust.

    Comes with BESTOP soft top and hard top.

    Dana 44 & 12 Bolt w/ limited slip.

    35x12.50x15 BFG Muds. 95% tread on black rock krawlers.

    unknown miles

    Strong goodwrench 350.
    Rebuilt TH350 trans.
    swapped in NP205 w/slip yoke and skid.
    New rear driveshaft (3").
    Tom Woods front shaft.
    Winters performance gated shifter.
    Onboard Air (York w/ 3 gallon tank)
    Custom front bumper with tow points.
    Crossover Steering


    Truck runs and drives awesome. I drive it 60+ miles one way to the trail, wheel it all day, and drive it home. I have all the original parts for the A/C, but they were removed to add onboard air. It has dents from rubbing the trees on the tight KY trails.

    Anyways, if anyone has an interest I can send pics and such, looking for $2500 obo.

    Sorry it's not the kind of feedback you were looking for, but nice rig! In case you couldn't guess, I have a soft spot for 75's. :cool: Good luck with the sale!

    Sweet looking truck! I like the front bumper! What kind of lift and how much lift? Do you have any pictures of the underside, what kind of shape are the underbody and frame in? Also, any pics of the interior? I am debating as to whether I want to keep my '87 Jimmy or pick up a full converible like yours. Oh yeah, one more question, will it pass inspection? I'd only need it to pass this year 'cause next year it'll be 35 and that means no inspection whatsoever in my state!:D If I can sell my Grand Cherokee, I might just be talking to you! My girlfriend might not kill me for selling the Grand if I get a big K5 that has an automatic (my Jimmy has a 4 spd and she doesn't know how to drive it!)

    I dont know if it will pass inspection... It has no smog stuff on it whatsoever.

    The lift is a skyjacker lift with cepek shocks. 6" total.

    Undercarriage is in great shape. There is some rot in the driver rocker, and the passenger flooy (I have started repairwork on that). Frame has no rust. driver floor and rear bed have no rust. Rocker boxes has no rust.

    Here is the interior.. no carpet, and dirty from wheelin. the back seat is out to fit the spare.

    Looks pretty good! Are the diamondplate bedsides something permanent or removable? Are all the gauges hooked up (even the auxillary ones)? It didn't have Cali emissions equipment did it? As long as there's no smog pump to stare at (pretty obvious if it's missing), they are generally pretty lax down here (safety and visual emissions inspection only). In one year, no inspection! Makes me miss my '69 Bronco (when I sold it, they still required inspections on old trucks). Would ammo boxes come with? Any shots of under the hood? Thanks!:D

    the bedsides come out when the top is off... none of the dash guages work, 'cept the fuel guage (thats all you need!), but the temp and oil pressure aux guages work. I keep an eye on my speed with a gps when I go wheelin. There is no smog pump or anything like that, no CA emmisions... Just a motor! :D I can get some under hood shots tonight after work. I haven't decided on the ammo boxes yet...

    Oh, and I have a complete TBI system I could consider including with the sale... I was going to convert, but decided to sell instead.

    I'm in the fully interested catagory.


    For ages now I've been looking for a solid '73 K5 to compliment my '73 RS/Z-28.

    Well, this is no show truck by any means, as it has its fair share of tree customizations, but it runs strong and could either be made into a 1-ton beast or have new sheet metal hung on it and made into a nice daily. :D

    do you think it would be safe to drive to Arkansas? If so I would be willing to drive down and look. also would you consider offers on it?

    I have never driven it that far, but I dont see why it wouldnt be fine. It was driven from AZ to KY before I bought it. I would entertain offers. Just pm me for details.

    just shoot me a message after then....

    oh, and if you hit the lottery then the price will increase to $35,000. :) j/k. Just be in touch... I recently acquired a full soft top for it, so that may change the price if I install it!
