It looks way cooler than the new one.
The new Blazer has been so successful that Chevrolet is struggling to keep up with the demand. Having strayed from the original K5 Blazer's rugged body-on-frame roots, not everyone loves the new Chevrolet Blazer in its new crossover form.
If you're a fan of the original off-roader, you're going to love this new one-of-a-kind 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer 4x4 restomod by Ringerbrothers. Since Ringbrothers started building custom Blazers, they have become incredibly popular - one example sold for a staggering $300,000 last year. This example, however, is being given away for free to one lucky winner at an Omaze sweepstake supporting the Team Rubicon disaster response charity.
Under the hood of this one-off 1970 Chevrolet Blazer K5, Ringbrothers has fitted an LS3 V8 crate engine generating out 430 hp at 5,900 rpm, which sounds aggressive thanks to a custom Flowmaster exhaust system. It also rides on custom HRE forged wheels wrapped in General Grabber all-terrain tires.
Replacing the Blazer's original hardtop is a soft top and custom roll bar. The exterior is finished in Growler Green paint and has been extensively modified with a new hood, larger wheel wells and billet door handles, hood hinges, and dash bezel.
Inside the custom cabin, high-quality leather adorns the seats, door panels, side panels, and console.
"We began building Blazers a few years back, and they've really taken off in popularity since then," said Ringbrothers co-owner Jim Ring. "This is first time we are building a vehicle that will be given away. The finished product is mild and classy, yet any enthusiast will instantly know it's not stock."
Ringbrothers co-owner Mike Ring added: "We have completed a few Blazers now and each build is unique and different from the last. This Blazer comes with all the modifications and upgrades an enthusiast could want."
To be in with a chance of winning this bespoke Blazer, the Omaze sweepstakes will run until September 16, 2021. The winner will then be announced on October 6.
