There's news from the Ringbrothers from Spring Green, Wisconsin. After a few months already a Dedicated to 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer, it was now another K5's turn. This time the basis is a vehicle from 1971 and here too the project was "restomodding"! In other words, after a comprehensive restoration, this classic should also be equipped with countless components from the present. The Ringbrothers are undoubtedly one of the best-known and most successful tuners in the restomod scene, which has been on the rise for years, especially in the USA. In particular, US vehicles such as oldie pickups and all-wheel drive vehicles are in good hands with the Ringbrothers, but of course classic coupes like the one too Mustang, AMC and even a beautiful one Madam V has already been refined by the company from Spring Green.
And the last completed project is this K5 Blazer, which was commissioned by the US rapper Future originated. As already mentioned, the vehicle dates from 1971 and received a mighty 6,2 liter LS3 small block V8 during the restoration. It provides a huge 436 hp in the bow and is coupled to a Flowmaster exhaust system and a 4L80-E automatic transmission with four gears. Visually, the K5 Blazer has a completely new paint job in BASF-British Racing Green and there were 18-inch forged wheels in contrasting colors from the shelf of HRE Performance Wheels. The wheel set is equipped with befitting BFGoodrich off-road tires and, of course, behind the new wheels there is also a completely new chassis including a lift, a befitting sports brake system and many other components from the present. And a lot has also changed on the body, although this is only apparent at second glance.
new tailgate with extra seats
The K5, for example, received a new bonnet made of carbon, there were clear-glass headlights, LED lighting and a custom-made tailgate. She has two integrated picnic seats with her. On nice days, the K5 can be used as an open-air fun maker and ensures sufficient safety thanks to a black painted roll bar, which is also the attachment for the hood. And of course you have the cabin with the help of the specialists from Upholstery Unlimited extensively pre-buttoned. The particularly noteworthy changes include a new leather interior in brown with black accents, there were stylishly embossed Ringbrothers logos in the seat backrests and the dashboard has also been adapted and upgraded.
Kenwood head unit and JL audio sound system
The dashboard is presented with brand new round instruments, there was a new control unit for the built-in and fully functional air conditioning and a large Kenwood head unit with touchscreen for controlling the JL audio sound system is also included. Similar to the changes on the outside, it is also the small details on the inside such as the aluminum pedals, the noble leather steering wheel or the already mentioned extra seats in the tailgate that make the K5 an outstanding one-off.
