Not a Replica. A Continuation of the Original.

Bill Thomas' enthusiastic authorization of the continuation shouldn't surprise anyone - it's his chance to help so many fans of the Cheetah relive the glory days.

It didn't happen overnight: The continuation collectible is the result of a painstaking, years-long commitment to the project, and a team dedication to absolute adherence to Bill's dream.

From its hand-laid fiberglass body, Muncie 4-speed M-20 transmission to its Stewart Warner full gauges, the Cheetah has been rebuilt entirely around the original concept, specs and drawings. The only changes from the original are updated safety modifications.

It's the real thing.

History. The Cheetah is Born.

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

Despite the small staff producing the car, the Cheetah, boasting shockingly good looks and unheard-of performance, developed a fanatical following. It didn't just turn heads at tracks: the street version brought envy to every neighborhood it called home.

But sadly, it wasn't meant to be: Chevy pulled its support and, in a twist of unfriendly fate, fire destroyed the Cheetah factory. The dream ended, but the haunting question remained: What might have been?
