The auction hammer fell at $112,000 for this 1975 Chevrolet K5 Blazer: Very Well Sold
This delivery-mile Blazer continues the burgeoning trend of the big dollar low-mileage truck craze. Over the last few weeks we have seen several low-mile pick up trucks come to market and sell at six-figure prices. Online sites have enabled these low-mileage survivors to come out from the woodwork. It turns out that several Ford and Chevy trucks from the 1970s and 1980s were put away and stored with less than 200 original miles. The market is taking notice and prices are being bid up sharply. Case in point: A 1975 Chevrolet K5 Blazer sold recently on Bring a Trailer for over $100,000. This follows on the heels of the 1980 Ford F250 4×4 that sold for almost $100,000 a few weeks ago.
From BaT: This 1975 Chevrolet K5 Blazer was sold new by Paul Wilson Chevrolet in North Tonawanda, New York, and is powered by a 350ci V8 paired with a three-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The truck is finished in two-tone Grecian Bronze and Glacier White over a Saddle interior, and equipment includes 15″ wheels, chrome bumpers, a 31-gallon fuel tank, heavy-duty shock absorbers, power steering, bucket seats, and an AM radio. The fluids were replaced in anticipation of the sale. This Blazer shows 57 miles and is now offered at no reserve on dealer consignment in Oregon with owner’s manuals, sales documents, literature, and a clean Washington title.
Well sold! Low-mileage supercars are prized possessions, why not trucks? The question is what do you do with this Blazer? If you drive it you devalue it. The new owner may just put it in the garage and stare at its beauty. Recent low-mileage truck sales serve as just another example of the collector car mania we are living in right now. Very well sold.
