Checker: The Forgotten Independent


Hinckley

Recommended Posts

Another reason for the scarcity of Checker built vehicles is a program where Checker took old models in trade, refurbished them, and then sold them overseas.

The prewar models are some of the more interesting ones. There were models built in conjunction with the Auburn Saf-T-Cab, styling touches by Dietrich, and an odd "Suburban" model promoted as a one ton, nine passenger station wagon that converted into a hearse or panel truck.
