“You talkin’ to me?” Imagine yourself as a kinder, gentler version of “Taxi Driver” cabbie Travis Bickle as you pilot this streets in this Checker. MotoeXotica Classic Cars presents a 1982 Checker A12E Marathon Limousine.
One of 13 limousines Checker built at its Kalamazoo, Michigan factory in February 1982, its final production year, this car was made for the high-end professional car market.
This example was repainted in 2013 and its paint and trim are in very good overall shape. Other recent revamps include the full vinyl roof, hood, new rocker and quarter panels. The glass panels are clear and crack-free, as are the car’s lights. The car rolls on 225/75R15 radials at all four corners, surrounding factory wheel covers. The car’s body panels are straight and solid, the bumpers are in good shape and the engine and cargo bays are fairly tidy.
Under the hood is GM’s 267 CID V-8, hooked to a Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission with 2.72 gearing. Driver convenience features include dual Frostemp air-conditioning, cruise control, power steering and power brakes with front discs. In 2013, the car received a radiator, an electric radiator fan, exhaust system, power front disc brakes, tires and cruise control. Last year, the car received new rear brakes.
Inside, the car’s black vinyl and velour interior is overall good condition. The front bench seat shows some blemishes. Behind that, there is a fold-down, full width second row jump seats and a third-row bench seat that are in a similar state to the front seat. The matching black carpet is in good condition. The black headliner and instrument panel are in good order. The steering wheel, gear shifter and tilt column are lifted from an early 80s GM vehicle, perhaps a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The mirror glass and shifter look good and finishing out the interior is a Pioneer AM/FM stereo with CD player.
Documentation includes original Checker Motor Corporation build sheet.
