The ICTA would like to put some perspective on all of the cars that were recently dumped in Lawrence, Mass. They were dumped by Checker Motor Cars of Haverhill, Mass. Thankfully via Michael Ruse ‘s connections we were alerted of the major Checker event. Based on review of the satellite photo, it’s pretty clear that Checker Motor Car’s dumped their entire stock of parts cars.
The cars circled in the satellite photo in our header picture depict the entire fleet of project and parts Checkers that have been liquidated from the Checker Motor Cars inventory. All signage at Checker Motor Car has been removed and all remaining quality used Checkers are for sale (about six).
Given the signage has been removed and a significant amount of inventory has been dumped, it appears the Checker Motor Sales may be out of the Checker business. Significant public relations attention was created in 2015 about the relaunch of a new Checker. Three years later, not a single prototype has been publicly displayed or produced.
Expensive plastic hood ornaments and grilles have been introduced, but it seems that we will never see a new Checker. We have seen many artist renditions of the new Checker, we imagine, that’s all we’ll ever see from the dubious cock and bull story perpetrated on Checker fans. Just a bunch of pretty drawings and very little individual craving attention.
According to 495 Auto Salvagers about 5 to 10 of the approximately 30+ of the dumped Checkers have been crushed. One wagon has been saved, let’s see if we can saved a few more. This blog depicts 22 Checker currently on site
We just feel its important to showcase all the Checkers that were recently dumped in Lawrence, Mass. One of only a handful of survivors may be abled to be save, these Checkers are available as a salvage car with no title. For more information please call 495 Auto Salvagers in Lawrence, Mass.
