1971 Chevrolet Blazer Custom Roadster

Custom to the max... this 1971 Blazer Custom would make a great cruiser.

 

Yet another color that generally turns me off but this one pulls it off nicely with the tan interior and stance. It also has a modern LS1 powerplant and great suspension which gets a huge thumbs up!

This is one that I am ITCHING to see in person in the Russo and Steele tents this coming week. I love custom work and when it is matched by pro-touring like performance I just have to inspect it.

Here are the details on this green beasty:

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 27th – 31st, 2016 at Russo and Steele’s 16th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction.

This Custom Roadster Blazer is a 1,200-hour, frame-off build, featuring power by an LS1 motor equipped with block hugger headers, MSD wires, PSI conversion fuel pump, and Griffin aluminum radiator with built-in dual fans. The with 4L60E OD automatic transmission drives a Ford 8.8 rear end and the underpinnings include Accuair air-ride suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, and Boss Motorsport 20- and 22-inch wheels. The frame has been tower-notched and powder-coated silver, and the suspension components painted to match the Synergy Green body color. The body itself has been re-imagined to create a streamlined look. Many modifications were completed to achieve this including: tilting the windshield, cutting the suicide doors to match tub height, shaving the firewall and tailgate, remolding the cowl panel and roll pan, and custom building the dash and center console. The new interior has been constructed around these modifications as well. It includes the installation of lower positioned bucket seats from a 67 Chevelle SS to maintain the sleek custom look. Complete with new auto meter gauges, a chrome tilt column with Billet switches, and a Billet Specialties steering wheel.
