I've wanted a 1973-1975 K5 for years. Always been one of my dream rigs. The other day a buddy of mine posted a link to a 1975 K5 on Craigslist. The ad sucked. No pictures, no phone number, not much of a description. Just said 1975 K5 Blazer, no engine, $600. So I emailed the guy a few times. No reply. Was starting to lose interest. Than a couple weeks ago, I clicked on the ad again, just to get the email address, and try one more time. Upon doing so, I found the ad had been updated with a telephone number. Called it, no answer. Left a voicemail, no reply. Tried a few times, nothing. I had all but given up on it, when a couple of days ago, the guy called me back. So he texted me a few pictures of it, and I said SOLD. Went and picked it up today.
Cell phone pictures I was texted.
It's not great, kind of rusty. Been sitting in a tree line for 20 years. Also has a god awful slushbox transmission and full time 4x4, but it is still a full convertible, and that is all I really care about. Of course as we were loading it up, he said he use to have a 1973 with an SM465, to bad he hadn't parked that one in the trees as well!
Here it is when we pulled up to load it.
Pretty standard 4" lift, blocks in the rear, no idea on gears, dry rotted 33x12.50x15's on horrid wheels.
Loaded on the trailer, fueling up.
Anyone need a tacky tube grille? I'll throw in the naked ladies at no extra cost!!!
There were some other cool cars in the tree line. I thought I got a picture of a pretty straight 2 door, 4 speed, 1955 Chevy that a tree had fallen on, but I messed it up somehow.
I did get the 1970 El Camino. 2 barrel for some reason, sadly an automatic as well.
Trans Am, with another lame automatic.
....and the sweetest car there, a 4 speed, 197(1?) RS Camaro.
