Cheetah (Bill Thomas Authorised)


The Cheetah on offer is a continuation of the original and authorised by its creator Bill Thomas. Built around the original concept, drawings and specifications. Chassis number BTM 006 was completed by BTM of Arizona in 2004 with Certificate of Authenticity. Unused and Factory fresh condition.

In the 1960s it was Chevrolets idea and Bill Thomas dream to create a car that would challenge the Cobra. The result was the awe inspiring Cheetah, born of vision, guts and a commitment to build a car that would shatter track records along with the Cobras dominance. With storied race car builders Don Edmunds and Don Borth, Bill Thomas built a car that in turn built a story of speed. 185 mph at Road America and 215 mph at Daytona.

Despite the small staff producing the car, the Cheetah, boasting good looks and incredible performance developed a fanatical following. Sadly it wasn't meant to be, Chevrolet pulled its support and in a cruel twist of fait a fire destroyed the Cheetah factory, the dream was over.

During the 1964 racing season the Cheetah picked up 11 wins, Cheetah believers know it should have been many more!
