1981 Checker Marathon Extended Wheelbase Sedan

The Checker Marathon was produced by Checker Motors Corporation in Kalamazoo, Michigan between 1961 and 1982 and was offered for both personal use and as a taxi. You may remember the famous Checker Taxi from the streets of New York, Chicago, and even Boston. Known for their durability and capacity, Marathons drove the streets of New York and Chicago for over five decades. Production of Checkers ended in 1982 when Checker Motors ceased automobile manufacturing.

This is a rare example of a well-running passenger Marathon. Features a very clean interior. Nicely done superior glossy black respray. Mechanically sound. Chevy V8 engine. Possibly the best example currently for sale in the country! Don’t miss out on your chance to own this great piece of motoring history.
