Cherry Bomb owner Paul Banks teamed with Year One early this year to recreate his own version of the 1968 Camaro, one of the cars largely responsible for the early success of the Cherry Bomb Glasspack brand. It blends today’s radical technology with 60’s & 70’s hotrod style, and will be introduced at the 2010 SEMA Show.
The LsX based engine was given significant enhancements by an 8-71 blower by The Blower Shop, a BDS intercooler system, electronic fuel injection, aftermarket EFI and coil pack controllers, a custom accessory drive system, all assembled by Mast Motorsports, and of course a killer custom exhaust with Cherry Bomb side pipes. The fuel system includes a custom fuel tank with baffles and in-tank fuel pumps, and the cooling system is made up of a Be Cool aluminum radiator and custom covered hoses. A T-56 Magnum 6-Speed Transmission by Tremec rounds out the torque transfer.
The rear axle: a Moser 9 inch rear with 3.73 posi. A Detroit Speed and Engineering hydroformed subframe and C6 steering knuckles and tubular control arms make up the front suspension, followed in the rear by a Detroit Speed and Engineering Quadra-Link. Baer’s 6S 6-piston brakes will provide its occasional need for stopping power.
The wheel & tire combo sets the whole tone of the ride with Custom Billet Slot Mags’ 18″x8″ fronts, and 18″x12″ rears on Nitto 245-40-18 fronts, and Nitto 345-30-18 rears.
A Vintage air AC system, Alpine head unit and Boston Acoustics amps/speakers round out the interior’s must have creature comforts. The interior includes Year One restoration parts, Classic Instruments’ gauges, and Custom Cerullo seats. The body: Year One reproduction panels and trim Mini-tubbed and modified for four link rear suspension. Painted Cherry Bomb red over flat black with gloss stripes, and black powder coated trim and details, this Disturbing the Peace Camaro will be considered another true Cherry Bomb signature statement for years to come!
