Growler Green (MG 673.00)
This 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer CST, nicknamed “Watchman,” was built by Ringbrothers in 2021. The truck is finished in Growler Green over a custom tan leather interior and powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 paired with a Bowler Performance three-speed automatic transmission. Additional equipment includes a custom roll bar, soft top, carbon-fiber hood, and stereo system, as well as 18″ HRE wheels, a dual-range transfer case, Baer disc brakes, QA1 shocks and sway bars, Dakota digital gauges, a Vintage Air climate control system, an Ididit steering column, and billet aluminum accessories.
The body was removed from the frame in order to straighten the side panels and enlarge the wheel wells. A repaint in Glasurit Growler Green (MG 673.00) was then carried out. Additional equipment includes a custom roll bar and soft top, custom carbon-fiber hood with billet inserts, custom door handles, a machined fuel-filler cap, and custom badging. The chrome bumpers and trim were refinished by Advancing Plating in Portland, Tennessee, and the anodizing was performed by Pioneer Metal Finishing.
Bronze-painted 18″ HRE wheels are wrapped in 33×12.5″ General Grabber X3 tires. Additional equipment includes QA1 shocks and sway bars, Warn manually locking front hubs, and four-wheel Baer disc brakes with red calipers and drilled slotted rotors.
The custom interior was provided by Upholstery Unlimited and includes tan leather seats with green stitching along with a matching leather-trimmed dashboard. The patterned-cloth carpeting also appears on the door panel inserts, and additional amenities include Ringbrothers machined aluminum door handles and dashboard components, Vintage Air climate control, a Kenwood touchscreen stereo, and a Kicker amplifier, subwoofer, and cabin speakers. A Painless Wiring harness is installed, and sound dampening was applied under the carpeting and door panels.
The leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel is mounted to an Ididit steering column. Dakota Digital HDX-series instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and auxiliary gauges. The digital odometer indicates approximately 700 miles.
The firewall was notched 4″ to accommodate a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 crate engine. Power is sent to the rear or all four wheels through a Bowler Performance three-speed automatic transmission, a dual-range transfer case, and Moser Engineering rear end.
