cheetah formula four other makes

This is a [sc:ebay itemid=”301153157175″ linktext=”1963 LeGrand Cheetah Formula 4 race car”]. It was sold back in the day either assembled or as a kit, and was used campaigned in the short-lived F4 racing series. This specific Cheetah happened to be purchased, and then never assembled. It was eventually put together yet, per the seller, still has a bit more work required to get it ready to run.

What you would be buying here is essentially a brand-new 1963 LeGrand Cheetah. Sure, your track rat is fun to drive… but this could take things to another level.

If you don’t want to go fast, I found something that enjoys going slow. This is a [sc:ebay itemid=”261455072495″ linktext=”fully restored 1973 Jeep M35A2″]. It weighs… a lot, which is why it gets moving courtesy of Hercules LDT 465 cubic-inch turbocharged diesel engine. The world is your oyster with this blue beast, and we hope the buyer takes it to Whole Foods on a grocery run.

If you want a vehicle that stands out from the crowd a bit, look no further than this [sc:ebay itemid=”261450251184″ linktext=”1985 TVR Tasmin” ]. If you ever run across another one on the road, you are probably in the United Kingdom. Even there, we imagine it’s quite a sight.
