There are older vehicles with very low mileage that are not surprising, such as Ferraris and other exotics, show cars, drag racers (which accrue their mileage a quarter-mile at a time) and, of course, the little-old-lady-from-Pasadena creampuffs that never got much drive time from their retiree owners.
But a Chevy Blazer? That’s a tough and practical SUV that you’d more likely expect to find with loads of miles on it.
The Pick of the Day is a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer, a sporty 2-door model that has been driven fewer than 27,000 miles in more than two decades, with some custom flourishes added and looking to be in clean and well-maintained condition. The Conroe, Texas, dealer advertising the Blazer on ClassicCars.com figures that the SUV has been driven an average of 100 miles per month.
“When you locate a vehicle with almost no miles you start to wonder ‘why?’” The dealer says in the ad. “When you locate one with high miles, you wonder ‘why would anyone buy that?’
“But when you find a 23-year-old vehicle with only 27k miles, you realize you have found a real ‘gem.’ The miles aren’t so super low that everything has gone bad from non-use. This is a vehicle that has been used sparingly and been very well-maintained.”
The rear-wheel-drive Blazer is a survivor in very-good original condition, the seller says, mostly original but with a few tweaks.
“It has obviously been lowered and the job was done right with a BellTech lowering kit and spindles,” the ad says. “The only other upgrade was a set of 18″ American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped in new ZR-rated tires.
“Our inspection found only a few small paint imperfections on the hood, an immaculate interior, and everything mechanically working as it should.”
The Blazer boasts full factory upgrades, such as power windows, locks and mirrors, as well as power steering and brakes. There’s a roof rack up top and the interior does appear to be in fine shape.
Power is provided by a 4.3-liter V6 with automatic transmission, which should make this compact truck a great highway cruiser. The enigne compartment looks extra clean.
There’s been some rekindled interest in 2nd-generation Blazers since Chevy recently rolled out its latest version, so the asking price of $19,900 for this low-mileage example seems quite reasonable.
