$70k makes a K5 Blazer out of a modern Chevy Tahoe
Flat Out Autos, a tune-up shop based in Northern Arkansas, has rolled out four Chevrolet Tahoe SUVs stylized after the classical Chevrolet K5 Blazer. The quartet will be heading to the UAE to the royal family that ordered it, but you can commission a similar job.
Flat Out Autos plans on producing maybe one or two dozen such vehicles per year priced from U.S. $70,000 without counting the base car. The body proportions are admittedly not genuine, but this is largely due to modern safety requirements. On the upside, rather than selling a cheap body kit, the tuner goes through the pain of manufacturing most body panels anew, some even manually using the old-and-proven hammer and dolly approach.
The company replaces the hood, both bumpers and all four fenders, and strips the doors of their OEM skins. It reshapes the entire rear end and cuts the wheel arches so as to align the wheels perfectly with their wells.
The cabin and the powertrain stay stock Tahoe. A single car takes between 3 and 4 months to build, so place your order soon if interested.
