Type: 1970 K5 Blazer

Owner: Heather Barnes (wife of Josh Barnes)

Reason for Restoration:

Heather's love of trucks. It was her 33rd birthday present from Josh who remembers seeing pictures of a K5 his late dad had that was orange and black. He always loved that truck and this one was painted orange and black in memory of him.


The truck's bed is made of oak wood and is in a herringbone pattern. Heather enlisted the help of her dad to install the one of a kind floorboard. He also made custom T-shifter handles to match the floorboards. Custom Canvas completed the interior seats and made a beautiful canvas top for some extra shade.
