All offers will be considered. This truck is ORIGINAL as can be expected for a barn find vehicle from 1974.
1974 K-5 Blazer 4X4, 4-speed transmission, red and white exterior paint, 4 barrel carburetor. 15" inch tires, lock out hubs, full removable top, not half top like the newer models, buckets seats front, bench in rear, semi full rubber custom mats in front, carpet rear, new windshield, manual roll down rear window, see the photos and video. This is an Arizona truck.
I bought this along with two other K-5s in an estate sale. The other two sold the same day listed. The previous owner was an 80 year old machinist, who owned his own machine shop and he was a K-5 buff.
It was told to me at the time of my purchase that the "Mr Goodwrench" engine has less than 40,000 miles. This is what I was told and does not guarantee the motor or the transmissions age. The motor is responsive, smooth and terribly FAST. It runs and drives better than all of the other 7 Blazers that I own.
This is my Wife's daily driver. It is (as far as I can tell) all original, with in reason. I know for sure that it does not have the original gas, tires, oil, etc. I have looked at a lot of Blazers this same year online and on Youtube, this is original as you can get.
You can see a video of it on

It is an old man's truck that kids have not lifted, hot rod-ed, no over stereo-ed with multiple speaker holes, no flashy after market HP parts, or add ons. Just a Blazer from 40 plus years ago. It does have new dual exhaust.
It is an Arizona truck but suffers from the usual (Chevy this body type) rust on the extreme lower passenger side fender under where the battery sets, a little on the driver's side rear upper fender, lower tailgate. Just look close on the pictures or video to see if you can find it.
I could put further descriptions of this vehicle here but I have a myriad of pictures and a video of it running and driving that better describes it and it's running condition for you to view and make your own determinations.
This truck is over 40 years old. There are no warranties expressed or implied and this truck is sold as is.
You can come to Show Low, Arizona and test drive or further inspect it prior to bidding. I would, and I am proud to show it off and the way it drives. Nice!
Please see the photos and the video for any questions you may have.
