Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to offer this 1982 Checker Marathon for sale. The Checker Marathon was 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. 1982 marked the last year for production of the infamous Checker. The 1982 we are offering here is rather special, stating it appeared on the tv show Phantom Works. This Marathon has been a civilian model its whole life and has been in possession of the current owner for 22 years. The engine was replaced in 1999 with a smooth Chevy 350 V8 equipped with a 4-barrel carb and a GM Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. The car underwent a bit of restoration in 2009, being re-upholstered and paint by FantomWorks in Norfolk, VA. The Light Blue exterior presents well and looks sharp with the White top. The Checker Marathon is getting harder to find especially one that did not serve duty as a taxi cab.
