Checker T

Back To:

The Checker Model T was introduced in 1933 and now came with a Lycoming straight eight-cylinder engine.


The year was complicated for Checker by corporate intrigue. Markin was again ousted from the CEO spot in June. He then does a back-room deal with E.L. Cord who ends up as a majority shareholder and becomes Chairman in August. He then re-instates Markin as President.


Cord also transfers the Auburn Saf-T-Cab operations to Checker. This leads to the production of Checker Model T Saf-T-Cabs.


An order of 1,000 taxis by Parmelee allows Checker to hire back 500 workers.


In 1934 only 1,000 Checker taxis are built.
