    Thats exactly what i was thinking.....is it possible that it was totally geared for top speed or something?

    I read somewhere that these came tuned up to a potential 500+ hp now that would be one hell of a fast car

    Apparently not all the Cheetahs were built exactly the same. A large chunk of the approximate 27 that were built had the Chrystler 327ci bored to 332ci giving it roughtly 470HP. And a couple or so full-blown race versions that were stroked to 377ci giving over 520HP!! Just imagine what 520HP would be like with a 1650lb car!

    As for the "slow" comment, HARDLY. I remember the average Cheetah having a 0-60mph speed of around 3.4s, even less for the race versions; these have been clocked at Daytona doing 220mph. This is the only car, in my opinion, that could have beaten the Shelby Cobra durring its time, performance wise. Unfortunately, there was never enough funding it keep it alive, the cars quirks were never ironed out, so it just slid seceretly into history. Would've been neat to this and the Cobra battle it out for a few years.

    Slow??? the Cheetah is slow? this bad boy would have easily outran the Cobra & the Sting Rays back then and you call that slow? the HP to Weight ratio is outstanding on this car, and would have been a hell of a racecar back then and more of a legend today..I suggest you get more knowledge of the car you are posting (read: whining) about before you make uninformed posts...the Cheetah is kickass!!

  8. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    hell yes.
     
  9. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    Here's a rundown of its possible 1/4 mile time

    520 muscle car era hp = close to 430 net hp
    Its now pushing around 400 hp at the rear wheels
    Add a 200lb driver to the 1650 lb car = 1850 lbs

    400 hp and 1850 lbs = high 9's at around 140 mph with needed traction and if these power figures are accurate in real life.

    However i'd expect low 10's above 130 mph.
    Geared for top speed and that body shape with 400 rwp could hit 190+mph

  13. Re: Possibly the ugliest car ever!

    Sod off, i can't figure out what bit i love more, the looks or the power to wieght ratio. If your not shorting the keyboard with drool over this car your f****d in the head.
     
  14. Re: Possibly the ugliest car ever!

    well, it does resemble a vette, so i cant say its ugly...but needs more of a back end, ghetto booty!
     
  15. Re:

    They need to keep up the "Banning Of The Dumbasses" I think. It's people like you who give "dumbasses" the real meaning of the word. Hahaha
     
  16. Re: Possibly the ugliest car ever!

    yes it is. Look at it! It's pracitcaly mid-engined! Who would buy a car like like this?
     
  17. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    it weighs a lot and plus it isnt slow its preety fast and remember it was made in 1964 lol
     
  18. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    It is actually quite fast, considering it was made in 1964. This "Ferrariman" guy that made this thread should get a life!
     
  19. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    make sure you take into account the tire technology they had back then, pretty crappy
     
  20. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    It's preatty fast for it's time... You might not think it now, but it was...

  22. Re: Cheetah??? More like snail

    tires
    compute no weight over 7 inch wide tires from the 60s
    give it a Mickey Thompson and see when 0-60 looks like
