Not only was this K5 Blazer featured in the hit movie Jaws, it also made its way into other popular movies such as the Goonies, Bronco Billy and even a TV series: CHIPS.
Although the movies featured several different models GMC and Chevy had to offer, the K5 Cheyenne package was the most desirable of the models. The base model was a full-time/conventional 4×4 off-road vehicle that came with a 6.6 liter, M40 turbo hydromatic, power steering, power brakes and locking differentials on a 106.5-in wheelbase. The fuel capacity sat at 20-gal/31-gal. The rear axle, a GM Corporate 12-Bolt (8.7/8-in. 1.31 axle Dia. 30 spline), while the front axle, a GM Corporate 10-Bolt (8.5-in 1.28 axle Dia. 28 spline). Some of the options included: 33-inch tires, soft ray tinted glass, soft top or hard top in various colors, a built-in roll cage, and fuel tank shielding. Engine options varied from OHV Eight-cylinder 305-cid to 350-cid to 400-cid, horsepower at 100-175hp and torque at 175-290 lb-ft, depending on the engine.
One could also obtain the Cheyenne package. This luxurious package came with a custom steering wheel, custom bench seats, vinyl/nylon seat covering, door trim panels/headliner, ash tray mounted cigar lighter, extra insulation and a custom dash (tach and badges). Exterior elements included hood stripes, hood ornaments (must get hood ornament for hood stripes), tailgate trim panel with a Cheyenne emblem as well as a Cheyenne emblem in chrome on the rear fender.
