Moss Gold Cheyenne: 1976 Chevrolet K5 Blazer

While a Chevrolet K5 Blazer is already a desirable vehicle, there are certainly ways to make this mass production 4×4 into more of a standout. Of course, it comes down to options and colors, and this 1976 example has some desirable boxes checked in both categories. The seller notes that it comes with a variety of special features, starting with the unusual and handsome paint combination of Moss Gold and White, along with other upgrades and equipment. Find this well-optioned Blazer here on eBay with bids to $17,900 and no reserve.

This is one of the better color combinations I have seen on a Blazer of this generation, and it still presents well here. The white-painted steel wheels and all-terrain tires compliment the looks nicely, as does the white removable hard top. When it comes to vintage 4x4s, many of them have been over-restored to the point of being too polished to use as intended, which really defeats the purpose of owning such a truck; in the case of this Blazer, it looks just nice enough to leave as-is but not so perfect that you can’t leave it in a grocery store parking lot. It also appears to be largely rust-free.

Inside, you’ll find low-back bucket seats, woodgrain door, dash, and rear trim panels, and a factory center console. The interior is unrestored like the rest of the truck but appears to be in very good condition. The seller confirms that this Blazer has lived in northern California all of its life, and that much is certainly clear based on the photos. Other equipment worth nothing includes air conditioning, cruise control, front disc brakes, and a rear tire carrier, which was presumably removed for photos. The dash mat has hopefully preserved the dash pad, but you’ll have to ask the seller to confirm whether it’s hiding any cracks.

The old-reliable combination of a 350 V8 and three-speed automatic transmission is present here and will serve the next owner for years with only the most rudimentary of maintenance. Mechanically, the seller highlights a 31 gallon fuel tank, tilt steering, skid plate, and towing equipment as desirable factory gear, and I’m curious if the towing components mean there were other upgrades made to the cooling system (sort of like a Camper Special). The 350 will provide around 175 horsepower which isn’t much by today’s standards; however, these trucks were always about being slow and steady, whether on the road or the trail. It’s rare to see a desirable K5 offered with no reserve, so get in there if you’re in the market.

    Nice Blazer. Last week it had a high bid of just over $25,xxx, it will probably land around there this time too. Though not cheap, seems reasonable based on how it looks in the pictures.

    The rear tire carrier is there and can be seen in pictures number 13 and 23.

    That is a nice one. I love the colors. Nice stock 70’s vibe. A guy in town has one that’s really similar that always gets a lot of looks (and offers to buy). Red and white two tone, red interior with the same white wheels and hubcaps.

    Great looking K5, better than my 86, hard to believe about no rust must have been indoors.
