Up for sale is a 1982 Chicago Checker taxi that is still fueled by propane. For those of you who know these cars, this is an extremely rare one. This was Chicago cab #4583
Checker made 50 of these vehicles. Many ended up in the junk yard. This maybe one of the last one left to survive.
As you can see from the photos, the car is rough. It has its share of rust but is not terminal. The body was made from galvanized steel.
The car runs and drives. It has new brakes, tires and propane diaphragm. I have a complete set of new propane fuel hoses that have not been installed that will be included in the sale. In addition, there is a spare propane tank (find one of these).
I have way more into this car than the I am asking. I am selling it because I have 4 other Checkers and need to focus attention on some of them. VIN is 1CMTS4520CK000123. True mileage unknown.
Message me with any questions. If you need help with shipping, I have a guy I use who is very reasonable.
Don’t miss the opportunity to own an iconic piece of history. Where else are you going to find one?
Hopefully the person who buys this will keep it as is or restore it to its former glory.
Car is located in NY. reply by email:
