Information about Checker Motors Corporation

Checker is an iconic automobile brand that has left a lasting imprint on the automotive industry. Founded in 1922 by Morris Markin, this brand has had a fascinating journey throughout its history.

Morris Markin, along with a group of enthusiasts, established Checker Motors Corporation in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Their vision was to produce reliable and durable vehicles that would cater to the needs of both taxi companies and individual drivers alike.

The first car introduced by Checker was the Model G1 – a modest sedan that became an instant hit due to its spacious interior and sturdy construction. However, it wasn’t until the introduction of their second model, aptly named “Checker Model A,” that they truly found success.

The Checker Model A quickly gained popularity among taxi fleets across America in the years following its release. Renowned for its durability and robustness, this vehicle became synonymous with reliability on wheels. It soon cemented itself as one of Checker’s most popular cars ever produced.

Despite facing tough competition from other well-established brands like Ford or Chevrolet during their tenure as an automobile manufacturer until 1982 when they ceased production for consumer automobiles visitors can still see Checkers today operating as taxicabs or privately-owned classic cars around major cities globally.

Today marks something not only curious but also impressive about Checker: even though they’re no longer producing their renowned vehicles commercially since closing production facilities over thirty years ago wish majestically started manufacturing battery-powered commercial delivery vans alongside equipping existing chargers converting them into electric power sources revolutionizing transportation once again.
