SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! The Checker Marathon is an automobile produced by the Checker Motors Corporation of Kalamazoo, Michigan, between 1961 and 1982. It was marketed as a passenger car for consumers, as opposed to the similar Taxi, which was aimed at fleet buyers. Marathons were produced in both four door sedan and station wagon forms. The engines used were originally Continental-built L head inline sixes (OHV units for the wagons), but these were exchanged for Chevrolet sixes and small block V8s for the 1965 model year. These continued to change as Chevrolet introduced modifications, peaking with the 1969 L48 350 V8, which produced 300 horsepower.
