LAS VEGAS, NV — What do you do when you want to stimulate interest and create excitement? For the guys at performance clutch manufacturer Centerforce, the answer came in the form of a little blue pill.
In this case, the Blue Pill is the nickname for Classic Recreations’ 1969 CR1 Camaro, which was unveiled at the Centerforce display on Wednesday.
The CR1 started as a basic stock Camaro and received extensive bodywork as well as some new body panels from Dynacorn. It was outfitted with a custom rear spoiler and front fascia and sprayed in a custom shade of matte blue metallic paint from BASF Glasurit.
The Camaro’s Chevrolet Performance LS7 crate engine features a Concept One pulley system, custom long tube headers, 3-inch mandrel bent exhaust pipes, and MagnaFlow mufflers. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Centerforce clutch, Tremec 6-speed manual transmission, and 9-inch Strange Engineering rear end with 3.89 gears and Posi-Traction.
The Chris Alston’s Chassisworks suspension consists of tubular A-arms up front and a 4-link setup in back. A Wilwood disc-brake system with six-piston calipers and 14-inch rotors provide the stopping power.
