1966 Checker Marathon $18,595

O Fallon, IL Light Blue · 283 CID V8 · 56,806 miles
Up for sale now, in our Houston showroom is this very unique and rare 1966 Checker Marathon! The Marathon was introduced in September 1960 for the 1961 model year. The car was produced by the Checker Motors Corporation of Kalamazoo, Michigan, between 1961 and 1982. These cars were made famous and are most well known for their role for decades as a New York City taxi cab. This 66 is in fantastic condition and is a real gem to have in our showroom as it is a true survivor car. This one is shown in its original baby blue factory color paint that looks great. The car has been repainted within the last few years and it still looks great. The exterior body is straight and body panel gaps are even. The doors open & close with ease. The paint quality is good, with no dings, dents, or scuffs to be mentioned. The chrome bumpers, trim, grill, & door handles are in great condition as they have been reconditioned & re-chromed. The rear of the car is our favorite with the vertical tail lights on each side give the car a unique appearance. The car has new bumpers on the front & rear. There is no rust on body of the car to be found, the trouble spots on these cars do not show any issues. The car also has a new front windshield, rear window, & new weather stripping on them. Powering this lengthy car is its original 283 CiD short block that is paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine starts right up and is healthy throughout the power band and the transmission shifts smooth and gives the car a nice quality ride. The engine & trans are original to the car and have not been rebuilt as the car only has 56k original miles!! Looking at the interior, you will see the ORIGINAL interior. This car was a barn find and only needed a exterior repaint to get it back up to par. The interior is in excellent condition and has plenty of room! There is about a 3-foot space between the front & rear seats! The dash, carpet, door panels, headliner, & seats are all in great shape, are comfortable, & looks cool. The window cranks work as they should. All dash equipment works as it should. This car is a survivor car so it will have a little wear on it but how would you look in 50 years?? Options on this car include; AC (blows cool, not cold), power brakes, power steering, seat belts, vinyl & cloth interior, white wall tires, & more!
