Default K5 Blazer's

Anyone have a good reference site on the 68 - 72 K5 Blazers? Looking to educate myself on the differences between the K5's, K10's, Blazers, Cheyennes, Highlanders, etc. Drivetrains, Options, packages etc.

Thanks!
Dave

Like everything else I wouldn't be surprised if they have a dedicated website. I never looked into it, but there is a rather large following, especially for the 69-72 blazers.

Here's my 72 K-5 with the CST package, white and orange interior that some refer to as Houndstooth but it's not exactly the same as the first gen Camaro stuff. I installed a 6.0 LQ4 and a 4L60E using Advance Adapters for the transfer case stuff. It ran 14.30's and would embarrass a lot of cars that should be faster, like this 2010 SS Camaro for instance LOL

The 67-72 Blazers are really popular right now. Prices have skyrocketed on them. I have always thought they were one of Chevys best RVs. I purchsed a 72 longbed K20 25 years ago and have never any trouble with it. I preferred the short beds looks but liked to haul motorcycles in the bed and be able to shut the tailgate.
