1974 was the last year for the station wagon and the first year for the true extruded aluminum bumpers for a 25 mph impact back were bumpers were made for bumping things..I believe they only built 24 of them.This car runs and drives, this car belonged to a friend of mine who had a large collection of checkers and supplied vintage checkers to the movie industy, if you are looking for a unique car this is the car for you. Checkers are a blast to drive and every time I stop for gas it’s an adventure, everyone loves to tell checker stories and some just want to know what the car is. This car has a venerable 350 engine the bullet proof turbo 400 transmission and a dana 44 rear end and front disc brakes. This car also has a heavy duty hitch for towing your boat or an airstream. The car also has aftermarket heavy duty sway bars that came from checker parts in california. This car handles like a slot car.. It’s corners great and doesn’t lean at all. I have taken the car on short drives it’s drives well, it’s been sitting roughly for five years. This is a running driving car, it can be restored or driven as is, it has a fold down back seat that gives you 8 feet of flat floor that is full 4 feet wide. Perfect for camping. Glass is good, carpet is like new. Very clean inside, perforated headliner is in great condition. The checkers came with battleship lineoleum this is showing little wear and the rub strips on inner wheel wells are in great shape as well. Lights signals and gauges all work .It has rust on the rear of the car please see the pics. Anything I can answer please ask. The car has all the a/c equipment but doesn’t blow cold. Half of the final bid is due within 5 days balance is due within 10 days. This car is in great shape for its age but it 46 years old so unfortunately I’m selling it as is. All funds must clear before the car is released. I can can store the car for 30 days. I am not accepting pay pal for this car.
