KOURTNEY Kardashian posted an Instagram Story of her husband Travis Barker sitting in his customized vintage truck.
The Instagram post features Barker’s Chevrolet K5 Blazer, which is selling for an average of $50,000.
Chevrolet’s K5 was popular with off-road enthusiasts due to its short wheelbase, rectangular body and removable top.
Some of the most famous K5 blazers from 1973 to 1991 featured this rectangular body concept.
Barker spent two months customizing his K5 through mechanic Don Hogan.
Don Hogan specializes in K5-K10 blazers, reports HeroMag.
Hogan called the K5a: “Rig that the whole family can ride and enjoy”,
This orange K5 isn’t Barker’s first K5 vehicle.
Barker sold a 1972 Chevrolet K5 for $440,000 at a Barrett-Jackson auction in 2020, autoevolution reports.
Barker was documented back in 2015 driving his previous 1972 Chevrolet K5.
Barrett-Jackson’s 1972 Scottsdale advertisement for Barker’s K5 reads: “This custom Chevrolet K5 features a new LS3 V8 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission, with 1,962 miles since restoration.

“The exterior is finished in Gunmetal Gray and fitted with 7-inch Vision VX series headlights. The interior features black leather seats, air conditioning, Dakota Digital gauges and a bespoke aftermarket sound system.”
Autosaur notes notable specifications in Barker’s sold K5 as:

Barker’s earlier K5 was built by Delmo’s of Burbank, CA and Empire Fabrication.
