The demand for the original 1969-1994 Chevrolet K5 Blazer two door is sky high, with perfect examples and high-end restomods fetching eye-watering prices. It’s equally hard to find a clean, drivable example save for used-up ex-Army trucks. What is one to do if they really want one bad? Flat Out Autos might have the answer: Make your own using a 2015 and up Chevrolet Tahoe.
Flat Out Autos of Jonesboro, Arkansas, is best known for their amazing, high-end Corvette restomods as well as the original K5 conversion. That original model debuted at the 2019 SEMA Show and since then, their hand-crafted conversions have gone as far away as Saudi Arabia. Now it looks like Flat Out Autos owner, Rob Hester, wants to take this conversion one step further by taking away two doors and shortening the middle a bit.
Your eyes are not deceiving you. This is the result of the conversion of a 2018 Chevy Tahoe into the two-door K5. Despite removing a section of the middle of the SUV, and modifying the rear window opening to fit the original K5 rear windows, Rob included all the sensors and hardware to make the rear curtain airbags work. Rob intends to drive it as his daily and it needs to be as safe as the original 2018 Tahoe.
