Super Clean 1989 Chevrolet Blazer Is Ready To Rumble Impress everyone at a show or on a trail. While plenty of new SUVs try to act like they’re tough enough to power through rugged conditions without trouble, this 1989 Chevrolet Blazer can take you just about anywhere, all without the pretense. It even has the classic two-door layout, making it clear that a good breakover angle is more important than easy access to the backseat. With a mere 38,411 miles on the odometer, this Blazer definitely hasn’t been used up. The red paint job absolutely glistens on this rig, showing that it has been given the royal treatment.

While K5-generation Chevy Blazer values are on the rise, these trucks are not exactly priceless collectables. Clean examples like this one on eBay can still be found for reasonable prices. This baby-blue example sets the bar way, way high, at a price of $265,000. It's an Icon 4x4 restomod, it's gorgeous, and it's for sale right now on the firm's website. If you've got a quarter-million burning a hole in your pocket and a K5-sized vacancy in your garage, you should buy it.

We Have A Serious Crush On This 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

We Have A Serious Crush On This 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer It may not be factory standard, but we have found ourselves smitten by this engine-swap S-10 Blazer ...Just recently, we unearthed a second-generation Range Rover draped in enough Kill Bill yellow to blow our minds. We even claimed that, with Rover’s 4.6-liter V8, the 4x4’s power was akin to that of ‘The Bride’, Beatrix Kiddo (Uma Thurman). Well, now we’ve discovered this 1987 Chevrolet Blazer, and it’s even more Hattori Hanzō than anything this side of Vol.1’s unmentionable Chevrolet Silverado, which for TV broadcasts was christened the ‘Party Wagon’.

Icon 4x4, based in Los Angeles, is known for building some truly world-class off-roaders. But most of its work is focused on Toyota Land Cruisers, and occasionally, Land Rover Defenders. This K5 Blazer was a one-off built by the company in 2015 to the same standards as its typical 4x4s. That means a body-off restoration and a modernized drivetrain, electricals, and interior. As with any Icon truck, it looks as if no expense was spared.

Under the hood sits a GM 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine making 430 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque. Thrust gets to all four wheels via a GM 4L85E four-speed automatic transmission, paired with an Atlas II part-time 4x4 transfer case and custom Dynatrac Dana 60-based axles. The custom suspension consists of Atlas springs combined with Currie sway bars and Fox Racing shocks.

Inside, passengers are greeted by custom leather seats front and rear, as well as a leather steering wheel, a lockable steel center console, a modern sound system, and extensive sound insulation material.

If you think all of these upgrades are worth the six-figure premium over your average K5 Blazer, head on over to Icon's site and reach out.
