Stacey tells the story of the legendary Cheetah and how that car was designed to beat Shelby’s famed Cobra. The GEARZ hunt for this iconic race car features the original ’63 Cheetah that Budd Clusserath drove 215 mph at Daytona in ‘64.
The 427 Cheetah Evolution started with an email from the client in Austin, TX. The conversation started with the usual remarks about remembering the car as a kid, or having a Cox or Aurora slotcar. As the communication unfolded, the project expanded from the simple Body-in-White package to having a completed car built.
