There has been at least one Cheetah kit in the past:

The Cheetah was one of my favorite slot cars back in the 60's. I was a bit young, born in 59, but my dad was huge into racing slot cars and I even got to have one or two.

I like most wild customs, but this one has never been one of those. Yuck.

I'd LOVE to see a Cheetah kit! Missed out on the Modelhaus body they offered (coulda done a lot with that), and I thought that Mini Exotics used to do one too? That one now is also unobtainium. :(

Just goes to show that when you see an esoteric body or kit and you have the opportunity to buy it.............DO IT! You'll just end up kicking yourself later!

I wish I knew Modelhaus made a Cheetah. Was it available at the time they closed?  I found one on ebay, but it was so rough I wouldn't build it stock, but that's Okay because I never build anything stock.

I've zero interest in silly show cars. They bother me. 

The Cheetah though. We've only been clamoring for the model companies to make this for 50 years. I'd be happy to see those.

May I second the motion here ?

Although the cheetah would be fun to see seriously doubt that enough units could be sold to make it economically feasible. Just  too limited  appeal. Best chance would be a resin kit.

I've seen a lot more people express an interest in a model of a Cheetah than they have in, say, a Chevy II

My vote.......Cheetah!

Seen two sell on evil bay in past.....one decent ( not mint ) & one pretty rough.....BOTH way out of my budget!!!

My vote is for the Chevy II.

At least you have some build options.

What options do you have with these?

A race car & a show rod.

That's excitement! <_<

None of the above. 

Not enough money in sales for a Cheetah kit for it to be worthwhile in my opinion.

Both!  A new showrod AND a Cheetah would be amazing!
