1965 Checker Marathon, I purchased this vehicle in 1999 and completed a full restoration in 2003. The car was used for marketing purposes for my company Network Checker. It has been driven each year but very few miles. It has been well maintained. A new small block chevy 350 V8 engine was in installed in 2003 when the mileage was at 9,982. Currently the odometer reads 44,000 and it drives like a champ. The transmission was rebuilt in 2008. In 2003 the car was painted with the exact matching color of New York City Cabs. Also upholstery was completely redone in 2003. The windshield was replaced in 2003 also and is in perfect condition today. The front brakes were converted from drums to disks and a modern dual cylinder was installed in the brake upgrade for safety. Electronic ignition was added when the new engine was installed. The radio was upgraded to an Alpine sound system with Polk speakers. The trunk lock was pulled last week and a new key has been cut but I need to reinstall the lock. The paint is beginning to crack in a few spots but is very good at present. There is minimal rust since the car has been driven very lightly and Colorado has a dry climate. If you want more pictures I can send them.
