Now available at our Dallas- Showroom location is this unique and rare 1970 Checker Marathon-Medicar! Approximately only 50 of these were ever produced throughout the Lifespan of Checker Motors Corporation.
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 four-door station wagon forms, and the rare eight-door, 12-seater “Aerobus” wagon. Except for United States government-mandated 5 mph bumpers in 1974 and ongoing mechanical changes, the Marathon remained virtually unchanged during its 21-year production run. However, Checker did comply with all safety and emissions requirements while in production. The final Marathon was manufactured in 1982, when Checker exited the automobile manufacturing business. The company continued operations for an additional 27 years producing body stampings for General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler, until January 2009, when it entered bankruptcy liquidation as a result of the downturn in the USA auto industry.
