I’m going to bet that this 1981 Checker Marathon never really saw taxi duty over the last 30 years. As Checker enthusiasts have reminded me several times in the past, Checker would essentially build you a car any way you wanted it, and this wouldn’t be the first civilian-issued Marathon to get taxi stripes. Yet there’s no divider, I don’t see any evidence of a roof light, and if those seats are original, there’s no way they made it through taxi duty intact like that. That said, civilian Checkers usually endured much less abuse than their taxi peers. From the seller’s description:
factory 350 Chevy, power steering and power disc brakes , ac , jump seats, lived in the sunny dry desert, much drier than most. nice appearance, runs and drives well. Transport your band, advertise your business, go to events with your friends, street legal, lots of fun.
