BTM is Very Proud to announce the Very Very Rare 1964 Bill Thomas Genuine #002 Aluminum Prototype Cheetah was just Purchased out of Barn in Oklahoma Dec 30th 2017. The Greatest Cheetah news to date and it still has its Genuine Bill Thomas Serial ID tag on it. This is 100% proof this car that sat in 2 different barns for 49 years with 1 owner Is the Famous Bill Thomas Prototype that also was evaluated at Chevrolet Engineering Center. Both #001 & #002 Prototypes had Serial ID tags Both evaluated by Chevrolet. This car was Bill’s Factory Road Race Cheetah, Racing New in Red with 58 race number and Titus behind the wheel mid 1964, This Cheetah was rebodied for the 1964 Oct Riverside Grand Prix Painted White with Black Circles with Race Number 58 and Flared front and rear. 1 of 1 Built with rear Big Fuel Tank. Rear body raised up 2 inches, Running a 377 R&D dual Air Meter Fuel injected engine. The owner history is Crystal Clear. It took me 24 years to make this dream come true. It is now setting in my shop here at the Official BTM Bill Thomas Motors with restoration starting Jan 4th 2018. With the Genuine #003 Alan Green Daytona Cheetah near Completion setting right next it and My #001 65 427 Le Mans Super Cheetah setting in front of them, Now this is what dreams are made of. This makes it the 7th Genuine Cheetah I am an owner in or have done restorations on or both. 2018 will be a Trend Setting Year for the Genuine BTM Bill Thomas Motors of Arizona.
