Checker A2 & A3
In December 1946 the imminent release of the new post-war Checker Model A-2 taxi was announced. Deliveries started in February 1947 with the new taxi costing $2,370.
The design of these taxis were based on the prototype Model D chassis and the pre-war Model A body. Roughly 6,000 Model A-2 Checkers were built between 1947 and 1950.
The A-3 cousin of the A-2 is released later in 1947. An 8-passenger limousine version of the A-3 comes on the market in August 1948. This is also the year when Checker introduces the use of replacable body panels.
