The Bill Thomas Cheetah was arguably one of the most all-American 1960s sportscars that ever existed. Developed from entirely homegrown components to rival Carroll Shelby's Cobra, it featured a front/mid-mounted engine atop a tube chassis and under a fibreglass body. In total, 10 cars were completed, some seeing moderate racing success, while others were converted to road-going models.
