Thanks for digging up this old thread. It was great corresponding with this fellow. Hard to believe it was 7 years ago!

Yes, I rode in it once. We had met him in my buddies Acadian for a biweekly race, lol. My friends clutch screwed up so Mark towed us back home. I rode in the car with him. I am positive it wasn't a 360hp 396. I had a 66 chevelle 360hp at the time and a race between us two was no contest.  Dan, my friend was running a 327 in a 63 Acadian. The beaumont never ever beat that Acadian except that day the clutch went out in it. At that time in Calgary, this was in 70-71 or so, Dan's Acadian was the fastest car on the street in Calgary. The fastest we ever seen anyway. It ran mid 12's at the track.
At the same time Cliff Bristol Chev Olds in Three Hills Ab. was putting the LS6 into 1970 Novas. There was 2 in town here. I watched that Cheetah show both of them his tail lights one night , and then to add insult to injury Dan took them both out also. Beautiful it was.

So in  the GM Canada documentation is there anything that denotes it as a cheetah or can they be cloned.

Nothing on GM Docs as the Cheetah was created at the dealership level. They could be cloned so you'd want rock solid documentation if you were to buy one.

 No one has produced any inventory from the dealership that we've seen on here...so as long as you start with an SD sold at Conroy, and a period correct replacement motor or original engine you'd be able to clone a cheetah.
