No that’s not a typo. On BringATrailer, a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer did actually just sell for $115,000… seriously. But this is one is was redone from the bottom up by a shop called Berkeley Garage out of Denver, Colorado.
Among all the modifications and finishes, they stripped down and refinished the entire bodyi n Harley-Davidson Vivid Black, and then also powder coated the entire frame and roll bar. They installed a 5.7l LS1 V8 engine and 4L75E transmission that matted nicely with the 4″ suspension lift. To finish it off they installed a RetroSound stereo system, TMI seats, and a ton of other goodies.
Seriously, this truck is flawless. But is it worth $115,000? I’m not going to lie, but that has to be an incredibly hard pill to swallow. I’ve seen a ton of K5 Blazers in great condition, albeit not this amazing, going for $40,000 all day. That’s restored, well done models and vintages. A rough one with work can be had for $10,000-$15,000.
it’s also not like these weren’t mass produced vehicles even if there is a collectible market. I do realize box style GM product has been increasing in price but I can honestly say I’ve never seen any of it come close to price.
With that said, this is a beautiful truck and someone is lucky to have it!
