1979 Chevrolet Blazer Overview

The 1979 Blazer would close out the decade with its highest production numbers ever: 90,987 of the popular truck would be sold.

The base engine remained a 250-ci I6 rated at 130 horsepower at 3800 rpm. Optional engines include a 305-ci V8 rated at 130 horsepower at 4000 rpm, a 350-ci V8 rated at 165 horsepower at 3600 rpm, and a 400-ci V8 rated at 185 horsepower at 3600 rpm. Fuel tank capacity for the base model was increased from 20 gallons to 24 gallons; all the better to horde gas during the 1979 oil crisis. =D

These trucks are still sought after by collectors and restorers. The body is relatively easy to lift, and wheels and tires easy to configure. Many aftermarket performance parts are still available today.
