Cheetah Race Car Chases a Boss-302 Mustang
In this video a 400+ hp Cheetah vintage race car chases a 430 hp Boss 302 Mustang at Inde MotorSports Ranch near Wilcox, Arizona on a day when the air temperature was 100 F. The Cheetah seems to leap from corner to corner with little effort, using only a fraction of it's power. This Cheetah is a very valuable collector car so the owner does not drive it at 100%, but it still cut a lap on this 2.8-mi 21-turn track at less than 2-min. Only 15 of these magnificent race cars from the mid-1960s were ever built. This immaculate example was built by the owner several years ago from the original blue-prints, and is powered by a small-block Chevy engine with four dual-throat Weber carburetors and makes in excess of 400 hp.





French BT Cheetah Chevrolet Coupe insane Car sound static & on track
Bill Thomas Cheetah Chevrolet Coupe insane Car sound static & on track @circuit de Ledenon 17 fevrier 2013 Performance Specs The 1964 Cheetah uses a 383-cubic-inch, 6.3-liter front-mounted V-8 engine positioned at 90 degrees with overhead valve design. The engine is built with a cast-iron block and head and has 16 total valves with two valves per cylinder. Brake horsepower measures 470 to 475 with a maximum torque rating of 435 foot-pounds. According to the Ultimate Car Page website, the Cheetah's engine fuel feed is a proprietary fuel injection system created by engine designer, Bill Thomas. Brakes and Transmission The Cheetah is equipped with four drum brakes. The vehicle's transmission is a rear-wheel drive system with four manually shifting gears. According to Ultimate Car Page's website, Cheetah designer Bill Thomas was forced to use drum brakes on the vehicle because he was restricted to using only parts that were also used on the 1963 to 1964 Chevrolet Corvette. Frame and Suspension The 1964 Cheetah's chassis is a space-frame type composed of fiberglass and steel. The Cheetah's body is built from aluminum. Front and rear suspensions for the Cheetah are independent wishbones with coil springs. The vehicle's roll cage is positioned directly over the rear suspension, meaning the driver operates the vehicle essentially sitting on the vehicle's back tires. Wheelbase for the vehicle measures only 90 inches.

Cheetah Race Car
Born in the '60s, and re-born in recent years; like it's namesake on the African Savanna, this race car is fast, agile, and very beautiful, and the example featured here (one of only a half-dozen still run on the track) is surly one of, if not the finest example out there. I came across this rare beast over the Labor Day weekend at the new Inde MotorSports Ranch track near Wilcox, AZ. Here's a link to another very good video featuring this beautiful car at the Inde MotorSports Ranch race track (a 2.75 mi, 21-turn natural terrian road course in the high desert of south-central Arizona): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvocmSZ8Ek8&feature=related .

1965 Bill Thomas CHEETAH International Car Shipping
Bill Thomas Motors built the Cheetah to be Chevrolets answer to the Shelby Cobra. In the early 60s, the indy tracks were being dominated by the Cobra 289 and the Ferrari 250 GTO. With Corvette suspension and full support from Chevrolet, the Cheetah hit the race tracks in 1963.

Boasting a 520 hp Chevy small-block V-8, the Cheetah had incredible lateral acceleration and could run a quarter mile in 10 seconds. Only 16 to 23 Cheetahs were fully produced, and many of those originals still make appearances in vintage races around the country. BTM, a different company with the full blessing of Bill Thomas, now builds a limited number of Cheetahs each year. These are more than just $100K replicas. Built from the original plans with the finest of Corvette performance parts, these Cheetahs are ready to hit the track again.
