In 2019, the American company Flat Out Autos presented an unusual version of the Chevrolet Tahoe: it stylized the previous generation SUV to resemble the classic Chevrolet K5 Blazer from the 1960s. The alteration was made specifically for the SEMA tuning show. The car came to the liking of the public, so Flat Out Autos decided to put the case on stream and collected the first four commercial copies.

All SUVs are absolutely identical: like the K5 Blazer, the body is painted in two shades (white top, blue bottom). Unlike most similar alterations, tuners did not limit themselves to half measures. Almost all body panels were re-manufactured: hood, fenders, doors and so on. Only the roof remained standard. Some elements, in particular the trunk lid, are made of carbon fiber. Stamped discs were used to better match the historical image. Even the door handles are different here.

Of course, there is no need to talk about full compliance with the original, since the K5 Blazer had only two doors (not counting the trunk lid) and a removable roof. Nevertheless, the look of the redesigned Tahoe is quite authentic. But the interior has remained the factory: no hint of retro.

Surprisingly, one customer bought all four copies. Given the fact that the cars are the same, we are probably talking about subsequent resale.

Flat Out Autos is asking for $ 69K for rework. This amount does not include the car: the customer must hand over the 2015-2020 Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon. The company continues to take orders for such unusual tuning.

Recall that earlier the Japanese Mitsuoka was forced to double the plan for the production of Mitsuoka Buddy, which is a Toyota RAV4 crossover stylized for the same Chevrolet K5 Blazer (but of the 1970-1980s model). In Japan, a car starts at 4,697,000 yen
