Following up on the incredibly successful “Action Line” Chevrolet and GMC light-duty pickup lines of 1967 through 1972, GM launched their “Rounded-Line” successors in late 1972 for a 1973 model-year launch. Development work commenced in 1968 and various components of the new trucks were tested on computer simulators before the first actual prototypes became available for testing. While somewhat squarish at first glance, the new bodies were perfected in the wind tunnel for improved aerodynamics, fuel economy, and performance. An all-new clean-sheet design, the new pickups were highly distinctive and modern in every respect, marking a clear break from the past.
Other advancements included tough double-wall body construction, a steeply raked windshield, flared secondary beltline, and rounded upper doors cutting high into the roof for ease of entry and exit. As before, both full-width Fleetside (GMC = Wideside) with wraparound tail lamp elements, and Stepside (GMC = Fenderside) with stand-alone tail lamps were available. Extended-wheelbase lengths, optional dual wheels, Crew Cabs, and the full-size Blazer/Jimmy were also available with four-wheel drive. Several trim levels were available and from 1975, they were expanded, ranging from the basic Custom all the way up to the top-of-the-line Silverado for the Chevy line-up. A comprehensive list of options provided buyers the unparalleled ability to personalize their pickups to meet their specific needs as never before. Available power teams included six- and V-8 engines, manual and automatic transmissions, and optional four-wheel drive.
The “Rounded-Line” generation was incredibly successful and long running, continuing with detail refinements for 15 model years from 1973 through 1987. The Crew Cab, Blazer, Jimmy, and Suburban models would continue through 1990. Predictably, with their super-clean lines, surprising comfort, and modern mechanical systems, these vehicles are even more popular today as perfect base material for customizing and upgrading for a multitude of purposes, or as useful workhorses. This 1976 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is a desirable two-wheel drive, short-wheelbase model with only an approximate 50,000 indicated miles of use. In addition to its 350 cubic-inch small-block V-8 engine and Turbo-Hydramatic three-speed automatic transmission, this Blazer is equipped with a removable rear roof topper, front bucket seats, plaid upholstery, power brakes, power steering, factory air-conditioning, a covered spare tire, and a factory jack mounted underhood.
