1976 Chevrolet Blazer is for sale in our Houston Showroom. This beauty is powered by a 350 cu in V8 backed by a Turbo 350 Transmission. This is a fuel injected engine which automatically adds to the reliability and smooth starting ability of the truck. With Vintage Air and a nice stereo upgrade you will fully enjoy driving this K5 daily.There is a new custom Flow Master Exhaust system that sounds amazing. The interior is custom and looks new inside. The outside is bathed in a beautiful white and green combination that looks correct for the body style. On all four corners you will find a nice set of new rally wheels and tires to keep with the original factory look. The top is mounted on the body and can be removed for more open air adventures.
This is a clean, dependable, original looking K5 Blazer that is very hard to find in this condition. Until 1975, the K5 had a removable convertible top. In 1976, a half-cab design was introduced and used until 1991.
Although the GMT400 platform was introduced in the spring of 1987 as a 1988 model, the K5 Blazer, Suburban, and crew-cab trucks retained the earlier platform until 1991. In 1989, the front grille was changed to resemble the squared-off ones used on the GMT400 series of pickups.
1973â?"1980 Blazers used the gear-driven part-time NP-205 transfer case (mostly mated to the SM465 manual transmission and some TH350s) or the chain-driven full-time NP-203 transfer case (mated to the TH350 automatic) and DANA-44 front/12-bolt rear axle combination through 1980. Starting in 1981 used the chain-driven NP208 transfer case (NP241 after 1988) with front 10-bolt/rear 10-bolt axle combinations until 1991. (There is an overlap of 12-bolt rears into the early '80s and a rumored overlap of 10-bolt fronts into the late 1970s)The second generation K5 models incorporated the rear hatch glass and tailgate into a single unit, which allowed the glass panel to retract inside of the tailgate by use of a manual crank mounted on the tail-gate or an electric motor activated by a key-operated switch on the tailgate and a dash-mounted switch. The weight of the large glass panel was ru-mored to be a liability as the manual crank gears wore prematurely and the electric motor was prone to frequent overheating and subsequent failure. This also included the electric motor drive cable which goes to the window regulator to the motor (similar in design to a speedometer cable), which usually would fail under heavy abuse. Another feature of the K5 Blazer tail-gate was the safety switch connected to the electric motor which prevented the rear window from being raised if the tailgate was unlatched.
