The 1960s was an interesting period characterized by cut-throat competition across major brands. With no one ready do be the last in the race, creativity was at its best.
Bill Thomas was a man of outstanding enthusiasm as far as sports cars were concerned.

He set out on a mission to recreate a Chevy-powered Cheater with the talented master fabricator Don Edmunds. It was at the Bill Thomas Race Cars, where the set out to build a car that would take the heralded Cobra by its head.

Originally, cheetahs were not built as race cars and there was only some very slim chance that they would make it through. Thomas and company set out to tune a 377ci Chevy V-8s and the results were disappointing. They kept overheating, and their while tubular chassis stretched and flexed too much that the wheels easily toe in.

The Cheetah on sale and dubbed Cheetah #003 is said to carry under the hood the very original Corvette 327ci block alongside Thomas cylinder heads. There are also a host of really desirable goodies all the way from the period gone by.

If you can amass some bucks to the tune $795,000 then you could drive it home. Auto lovers are a different lot from other humans no matter how you look at matters.

They will go back in history and dig up an ancient treasure to make it a loveable modern sale.
