Icon 4×4 Perfects Chevy’s K5 Blazer With This Restomod SUV

There’s no denying that the Chevrolet K5 Blazer is one of the greatest 4×4 SUVs to ever roll off GM’s factory floor. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement, as evidenced by Icon 4×4’s 1970 ‘Reformer’ restomod you see before you.

The inspiration from this build actually comes from Icon’s superb Bronco builds. However, the customer that requested it is a die-hard Chevy fan and wasn’t about to settle for a Ford. Luckily, the customizers had no problem finding a donor ride to restore, modify, and perfect. This beautiful brawler is now powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine — good for 430hp and 424 foot-pounds of torque. They also stripped the Blazer down to its chassis, which they powder-coated, before putting it back together with some other notable additions — like a ceramic-coated exhaust, brand-new-and-improved running gear, a quartet of Hydroboost-assisted disc brakes, and a completely revamped and upgraded interior (complete with modern high-tech amenities, like a Pioneer sound system). Unfortunately, as mentioned, this $265,000 is already spoken for, but we bet Icon could be convinced to build another for the right customer.
