Acme 1:18 Scale 1970 Chevrolet Blazer K/5 - Celebrity Owned. Originally owned by none other than Steve McQueen! A young gentleman named Bob Bianchi acquired this custom Blazer via a Penny Saver newspaper ad in 1971, buying it out of a warehouse in the Los Angeles suburbs for $1,800.00, and the Bianchi family has retained it ever since.
Later research by Bianchi discovered the Steve McQueen/Solar Productions origins as one of several purchased for the Baja desert race program. Accompanying the sale was a copy of the original dealer invoice from December 1969 showing Steve McQueen/Solar Productions as the first purchaser of this 1970 K5. When delivered, the Blazer was reportedly set up as a support vehicle for the actual off-road race, getting a front posi traction differential installed and a swap to a four-headlamp GMC grille to allow better light coverage in the desert night.
