Car for sale | 1985 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Silverado

This 1985 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Silverado is for sale on Classic American.

This is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a project K5 Blazer in the UK. This truck was imported from Florida in 1990 and was originally fitted with a 6.2 diesel engine and automatic transmission. Now minus it’s engine and gearbox, it presents the ideal basis for either a stock or custom build.


The chassis and shell are in amazing condition, with no evidence of structural corrosion or previous welding repairs. The under body has been well protected by a Waxoyl type coating which has saved it from the ravages of British salted roads etc. As a result the body is completely sound including the sills and floors which are typically rotten. The body was taken back to bare metal and put into primer before the project stalled.

Apart from the engine and transmission the truck is pretty complete with all of it’s major components as you can see in the pictures, including all of the glass. The rear axle is not fully secured to the leaf spring by it’s u-bolts hence the odd position in the pictures. In addition to what you can see the following parts are with the truck:

  • Wiper motor, wiper arms & scuttle panel
  • Head liner board and covering
  • A-pillar interior trim
  • B-pillar interior trim
  • B-pillar roof panel
  • Centre storage cubby box (rare)
  • Door step trims
  • Sun visors
  • External sun visor assembly
  • Hard top interior finisher trims
  • Grille finisher trims
  • Foot well kick boards
  • Stainless steel door mirrors
  • Full set of wheel arch trims
  • Rear number plate and carrier assembly
  • Lots of other smaller items (too many to list)

The truck is UK registered and I have both the V5 registration document and the original Florida Export Certificate (pictured). Reluctantly offered for sale as seller no longer has the space or funds to complete this project. Seller has have more pictures available but I expect anyone seriously interested will want to view the truck for themselves.
